Ep. #288: DIANA on margarine, soda pop, Toronto, kids' music, synthesized pop, America, 'Familiar Touch' & more

DIANA is an electronically inclined pop band from Toronto whose primary members are Kieran Adams, Carmen Elle, and Joseph Shabason. After their 2013 album Perpetual Surrender earned them accolades around the world from the likes of the New York Times, the Guardian, and NPR, DIANA toured a lot and then got back to work on new songs. The result is an excellent, emotionally raw yet playfully fun and infectious record called Familiar Touch, which is out now via Culvert Music. DIANA are gearing up to tour with a giant version of their band and are playing select Canadian and American cities in November and December. They were just in Guelph to play a show so we met up at CFRU for a conversation covered everything from margarine to Donald Trump’s America and much more. So here we go, this is Carmen, Kieran, and Joseph of DIANA on Kreative Kontrol.
