New Music: Diamond Rings- Runaway Love + Music Video
Electro pop artist Diamond Rings, aka John O'Regan, just released his sophomore LP, Free Dimensional, and judging by the excellence of the album, he is trying to fill the void left by the retired David Bowie. The native of Oshawa-or The Shwa as the cool kids call it-is becoming a bit of a pop sensation in his adopted Toronto and even has a fan of Elton John who invited him to play at a benefit concert in early September.
O'Regan just released a music video for the track Runaway Love that is very uncharacteristic for a glam pop star, as it shows him enjoying a day at a drag race course.. Then again, O'Regan grew up in a very car friendly suburb of Toronto and has never been shy about his love of sports. Watch as he hangs out with some crazy looking friends, while some of the small town locals prep their muscle cars and motorcyclists do donuts around the mohawked singer. O'Regan eventually gets in on the action as he dons a racing suit and takes to the racing strip in a blue Mustang. Not sure if he won the race.
Diamond Rings new album Free Dimensional is out now. Buy it on iTunes, Amazon or check your local record store.
Diamond Rings is currently on a North American tour and will play the Mod Club in Toronto on November 29th. Check your local listings for a tour date near you.
