Track of the Day #139: Diamond Christ – Lizard Squad
Posted by Neil Wilson
Allow us to reintroduce the brand new solo project from Glasgow music stalwart Kenny Leckie, Diamond Christ. Previous occupying the Track of the Day spot with his cover of David Bowie‘s Strangers When We Meet, this time round it’s the pumping hardcore sound of his own music that has grabbed our attention.
Lizard Squad snakes and pulses like the sounds of a eerie night. The drum, bass, snare combo reminds me ever so slightly of Bloc Party‘s The Prayer, but this instrumental only track keeps that energy locked into a repetitive groove, all the while adding layers of mystique and haze atop. Lizard Squad then throws a left at the junction marked ‘math-rock’, leading us to the outro with some nicely programmed beats.
With the promise of a couple of EP’s and some live appearances, keep your ears primed for Diamond Christ over the next few months.
