Diana - Canadian Music Week 2014 Report Card

CMW Report Card ’14: DIANA @ The Drake

Thursday, May 8. The toronto synth-pop band tried new things with old material, and it felt natural.

- May 9, 2014

Background/Composition: DIANA are a synth-pop band whose music usually makes critics flip through a tropical vacation guide and point at a word. BUT NOT TONIGHT.

Freshness: B+ 

Songs from their debut album Perpetual Surrender got revamped into droney warm-ups, highlighting the gloom already present.

Teamwork: A-

Rather than self-indulgent, the band seemed genuinely curious in travelling the different paths contained in their songs..

Audience: C- 

A bunch of people left. On one level I sympathize with the audience members who came expecting something a bit more standard. But if you don't at least appreciate the spirit of the performance you need to throw yourself into a volcano with the quickness.
