Fabulous Diamonds are Melbourne duo Nisa Venerosa and Jarrod Zlatic. Forming mid last decade, they play a brand of spacious, sensual art rock, full of vintage electronics, detached vocals and pounding, tom-heavy drums.
Their first self-titled album emerged in 2008, released in the US on revived and revered label Siltbreeze. Soon after the band took off on a month long American tour with Times New Viking and Psychedelic Horseshit. The album made it into the Wire’s best albums of the year, and got raves on the likes of Pitchfork and The Fader.
Fabulous Diamonds toured Europe in 2009 at the invitation of Belgium’s Kraak Festival, and also took in the UK, France, Sweden, Switzerland and Portugal.
Chapter Music will release their new album Fabulous Diamonds II by Fabulous Diamonds on June 19, with a vinyl version available from Siltbreeze from July 20.
