I'm pretty sure I first learned of this band from Rachael, who has excellent musical tastes, so I naturally checked them out. The Diggs' sound merges mid-nineties guitar-driven midwestern indie rock with English dream pop and some emo. My best comparision is a Sonic Youth sound with more radio-friendly lyrics. Maybe a little Dashboard Confessional-ly at times, but generally with more of an edge.
They’re from Brooklyn and have been doing a bunch of well-received shows recently in NYC, and they just released their debut full length record, Commute.
