Fabulous Diamonds are made up by Jarrod and Nissa who have been playing music together for a good many years and are signed to US label Siltbreeze who released their latest album Fabulous Diamonds II and their debut Fabulous Diamonds.

Here's a song titled "Track 4" from their latest album (sorry not a proper video):

Press Release:

HSP is pleased to present the NZ tour of processional dub and crypt punk diviners, FABULOUS DIAMONDS from Melbourne, Australia. Following their US excursion alongside Pigeons and Wet Hair, and their sophomore LP on Siltbreeze (Times New Viking, Sic Alps, US Girls), the duo’s heavenly garage anthems, liminal haunt funk, and transfixing, psychedelic mantras are poised to captivate audiences around the country in mid-December.

Liken...ed to a lysergic union of Lee Perry, Terry Riley, Suicide, Silver Apples and Young Marble Giants, what Pitchfork calls Fabulous Diamonds’ ‘part pagan sleepover incantation’ and ‘lush and trippy’ minimalism is a UFO potion of radiant synth arpeggia, lock-groove futurist-Baroque riffage, celestial chant and post-disco percussive clatter that has a disquieting, modal beauty and entrancing, cosmic unease. This is the duo’s first NZ visit.


Auckland Friday 10 December, Wine Cellar with Sam Hamilton and The Gladeyes
Wellington Saturday 11 December, Happy with Diana Rozz and Orchestra of Spheres
Christchurch Saturday 18 December, HSP with Witchuals and Luxury
