From a basement in Kommetjie, a small surf town on the southern tip of Africa, to stages across the world, Diamond Thug has quickly become one of South Africa’s most prominent Independent acts.
Like the birth of the universe, the band converged through chance events seemingly destined by fate amongst life’s chaos. Their music floats in a space between traditionally defined genres. Described by Indie Shuffle as “Space-Age Folk-Rock”, the band merge elements of Alternative, Electronica and Folk, often grounded in subtle South African grooves.
In April 2018, Diamond Thug released their debut album: ‘Apastron’, propelling them to new heights and aspirations. The 12 track album spoke to themes of cosmic proportion, presenting a beautiful journey of love and loss in the depths of space.
