Much like the song title may imply, Rococode, the electro-pop band from Vancouver BC are an absolute gem. "A Diamond" is the first song off their upcoming full-length album Don't Worry It Will Be Dark Soon that features thick synths, covered in warm strings and a steady march of drums. Over all of the shine, Laura sings about both the glamour and disgust of the human experience. Look out for their new album which comes out Friday, February 26.

"It's both a song about a personal journey through light and dark, thick and thin, as well as broader brushes with the darker sides of humanity like the diamond industry." explains Andrew Braun of Rococode. "Writing this song sparked the beginning of a new era of creativity for us. It was a big moment—Laura has a tattoo that goes with it." Listen to the song below:
