Diary has been writing and performing guitar pop music in and around New York City. Their new EP, the Cutting Garden, is a collection of songs summoning from dream-states, wistfulness, and the surrealist aspects of nature. There’s a familiar twang of jangly post-punk, tinged with fuzzier, swirling, psychedelia. First single, Plant Life, is acid induced dream-pop that ruminates on the haziest hours of the night, just before dawn.
Diary is Kevin Bendis (vocals, keys), Chris Croarkin (guitar, vocals) and Giancarlo Saldarriaga (bass), and Adam Sachs (drums).
