Dark the Giant’s single is coming out! Original post is here.
Dark the Giant takes 70s punk and power pop and twists them into a whole new sound that’s both powerful and filled with sweet melodies. Their first single “Diamond” (7-inch with download code) came out on March 8 and they’re playing a free release show on Friday, March 16.
“Diamond” is on the Stay Free label (SF-009), run by Fifi of Shimokitazawa Poor Cow, Firestarter, Tweeezers and Yesterday Once More fame (Dark the Giant guitarist/vocalist K-suke is also in Firestarter). Fifi and Young Parisian’s Tsuneglam Sam helped with the production and the cover art is by Romi Mori (ex-The Gun Club).
The record release party is set for Friday, March 16, at Shimokitazawa Three with Three Minute Movie and Flashlights. The show is a joint production of Block Party and Stay Free and admission is free.
