A
t the centre of Toronto Heatwave 2013, we're in DIANA's rehearsal space, which is a garage, and consequently a god damn sauna.

But DIANA's music is cool in every sense of the word, and in that very first moment they begin to play "Foreign Installation," our discomfort and exasperation evaporate. Suddenly we're awash in an alien, ambient soundscape. Saxophone begins squealing, coaxing the band into a crescendo - a monsoon of noise that eventually breaks. In an instant the clouds part, and a confident, enduring pop song blossoms.

Two days later, the heat wave breaks. Torrential downpour, and then lovely, non-sweltering sunshine.
