Sidewalk Diamonds are an Australian-Indie-Rock four piece from Perth who wouldn’t be offended if you compared them to The Triffids or The National. Formed in 2008 but truly realised in their upcoming release, The Postcard Collection EP.
Frontman Damien Goerke’s lyrics are as important as the melodies he puts them to, where Anthony Pugliese’s guitar lines set them up to be knocked out of the backyard by the always reliable rhythm section of James Luscombe on drums and bassist, Ed Smith.
Damien writes in a similar vein to Courtney Barnett, if she was working a 9-5 job and was a grumpy old man stuck in a twenty-something body. His heart has him concerned about the questions, lack of answers, and excuses we come up with for anything and everything life serves us.
Yes, they’re aware they’re from an isolated city, but their music will make you feel anything but.
- “It's bright and easy going. An ideal song for summer nights.” Dave Ruby Howe, Triple J
