‘The atmosphere builds gradually, the sound rising and falling as the duo
coax pulsing beats and a tidal ebb and flow of music. The natural world is
at the heart of The Diamond Family sound and their songs shift like the

‘This mesmerising duo play a hybrid of traditional folk wrapped in
melancholic psychedelic soundscapes that paint picturesque portraits of the
English countryside.’

The Diamond Family Archive are an English lo-fi, psych-folk,
multi-instrumentalist duo from The South Hams in Devon.

Live, The Diamond Family Archive craft a mesmeric live-show from drums,
acoustic guitars, lots of FX pedals, keyboards set to drone, tape delay,
loops and bellows, bows, harmonicas, cosmic harps, 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 vs pin-drop hush – fragile, lazy

In the last year alone The Diamond Family Archive have played shows in
Belgium, Germany, Holland, Italy, Spain, Switzerland and the UK.

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}, Stone Tape {UK} Lynch(ed) {UK} and many others.
