The Diamond Family Archive are a duo who craft a mesmeric live-show from drums and acoustic guitars, lots of FX pedals, keyboards set to drone, tape delay, loops and bellows, bows, toys and broken cymbals. All coming together to create music which holds echos of post-rock, traditional folk, spiritual soul music, psychedelic rock and lo-fi.

Foot-stomping, finger-picking, hollering, feedback howls vs pin-drop hush - fragile, lazy grace.


The last couple of years have seen 5 albums including 2 on vinyl and 1 on cassette, 30+ EPs, a host of short films, numerous field recordings and several collaborations.

The Diamond Family Archive have been quietly releasing records, tapes and CDs through a handful of labels (Dinosaur Club {USA}, Tired Trails {USA}, Woodland Recordings {UK/GER}, A Beard of Snails {Denmark}, MAP Recordings
{UK},Lynch(ed) {UK}.
