Diamonds of Neptune are a five-piece Melbourne band with a unique take on the indie/rock genre. They are at times reverberant, soulful and emotive, and at others fast paced and super catchy. Their slower songs transport you into the centre of a lyrical and instrumental story, and when they end it’s like waking from a dream. They take you on a journey from a trance-like state to truly great rock that will have you shaking on the dance floor.
Diamonds of Neptune are Matt Whitbourne (vocals), Adriaan Troise (guitar), Annthoni Motti (piano/synth), Alex Newton (bass) and Kynan Borthwick (drums). The guys got together in 2012, and have been regulars since arriving on the Fitzroy/Brunswick music scene. They are serious musicians dedicated to producing great tracks and staying true to their sound. A unique blend of personalities that clearly have a musical chemistry that works, the guys are always up for a party and have a blast playing live.
The band had a big 2015 with a sold out EP Launch, spins on Triple M’s Homegrown segment, a support slot for Northeast Party House and a residency at the Evelyn Hotel. Their summer anthem, 'Pipedreams', was released at Panacea Festival in November to a very receptive crowd. The boys show no sign of slowing down, with the launch of their latest single, 'Cyclical Nightmare' launched in Jan 2016 to a full house at The Workers Club.
Further plans include the release of a follow up EP, and a national tour later this year. Keep your eyes and ears peeled, and don't be afraid to come and say hi!
