Bio

Diamonds of Neptune are a five-piece Melbourne band with a unique take on the indie-rock genre. They take you on a journey from a dream-like state, blending sounds of psychedelic-pop with heavy synth and heavenly guitar tones.

Comprising of Matt Whitbourne (vocals), Adriaan Troise (guitar), Annthoni Motti (piano/synth), Alex Newton (bass) and Scott Barton (drums), the band was established in 2012, and in early 2015 we saw the release of their self-titled debut EP.. Produced by Diamonds of Neptune and Christopher Wiseman, the EP is the follow up to the previously released singles, ‘Spiderweb’ and ‘Fruit Tingles’ (2013).

The band had a big 2015 with spins on Triple M’s Homegrown segment and Triple J unearthed, plus supports for Northeast Party House, The Bennies, Stonefield, The Belligerants and many more plus a residency at the Evelyn Hotel. Their summer anthem, 'Pipedreams', was released at Panacea Festival in November. Followed by another single 'Cyclical Nightmare' launched in Jan 2016 to a full house at The Workers Club.

After a brief break from performance, Diamonds of Neptune have reemerged from the studio, eager and energised, with their debut album "BLOOM" bringing tales of life, growth, and re-birth.

There's stuff in here that I like quite a bit. It's got plenty of bounce.
