STARS AND DIAMOND RINGS SWAP REMIXES

LISTEN TO THE REMIXES ON RCRD LBL OR SOUNDCLOUD

U.S. TOUR KICKS OFF SEPTEMBER 20


“a light-hearted, follow-the-bouncing-ball dancepop gem” – RCRD LBL
Stars and Diamond Rings have taken taken their friendship to another level with swapped remixes of songs off each others’ new records.  Having performed together in the past and being part of the tight knit Canadian music scene, the bands have crossed paths many times over the years.  After sharing their new records with each other, it seemed like a perfect fit.  The tour and remixes were born. 
Lending vocals, a minimalist touch, and slowing it down, Stars transforms Diamond Rings’ “Runaway Love” from the upcoming album, Free Dimensional, from a synthy, rock track to a smooth, slow, thumping jam.   On the flip side, Diamond Rings takes Stars’ “The Theory Of Relativity,” off their newly released album The North, and shines it with a new electro-dance light.  You may see lasers while listening to this version. Laced with heavy synths, a steady beat, and a lot of attitude, it’s hard to not imagine a dance floor.
