Rough Days For Diamond Trade

Rough Days For Diamond Trade is the musical project of Frederik Sølberg a Danish musician (I believe he works/lives in Berlin at the moment) but what a fantastic name! I am late to the party on this guy, his first single ‘Doubtful Mind’ was out in April of this year (on ‘We are  looking forward’: www.wearelookingforward.de but it is really beautiful so worth stating again and again.

Sølberg brings together the tender melancholy of bands like Lush but also the dark brittle guitar playing of latter-day gloomy, self-obsessing post-punk knitting them together with bright and progressive percussion.

Highly recommended.

This is the video for ‘Doubtful Mind’.
