For DIANA’s music video for “Perpetual Surrender,” artist Jesse Yules experimented with folded paintings of lead singer Carmen Elle. “I used images with a strong, singular light source, that cast a shadow on one side of the figure. I tried to illustrate the idea of a personality with different sides, by mirroring and animating the lit side of the portrait, then contrasting that by mirroring the shadow side of the portrait.”
Perpetual Surrender, the debut album from DIANA, will be released on August 20th in the US (19th in Europe).
DIANA will perform live on a bi-coastal tour with Austra starting on August 30th in Detroit.

My name is Charles Brownstein and I was born in Montreal, Quebec. I presently live in Vancouver, BC.
I am a true lover of music, food, books, film, and stand-up comedy. Foremost it is music that I love, that is what drove me to create this site. I confess to liking Duran Duran and the Bee gees in my youth.I prefer In Utero to Nevermind and safe as milk instead of Trout Mask Replica.
