Diary debuts "Brush Pile" at Flood Magazine

Today we are releasing more new music from NYC's Diary. "Brush Pile" is a jittery psych-pop track that oscillates between feelings of agoraphobia and FOMO. The sensation of being completely drained and the anxious rush of popping another caffeine pill. Diary draws inspiration from Sonic Youth and No Wave guitar sounds, but also the sugar-crushed alt-rock vibes of 'Siamese Dream' and early Sloan records. First listen/watch at Flood Magazine “Brush Pile” which maintains the noisiness of its predecessor while venturing into the territories of ’80s no-wave, ’90s grunge, and ’00s post-punk revivalism—all while the vocals feel largely indebted to Lou […]

The shop-owner described the aura as looking tired and not really there. It felt like an echo for that entire day. Sundays can be like that—you find yourself in an ephemeral place between the haze of sleep and […]
