Out Of Myself





!K7 Records is known for their awesome mix tapes and dance music. But singer-songwriter artists? Yeah, they have that too now. On August 2 Benjamin Diamond will be unleashing his first record for the label. Benjamin first came on the scene about five years ago with Strange Attitude, his debut album, and also had huge success with the Daft Punk induced Stardust track "Music Sounds Better With You". His French beats are in the same family as Air and Phoenix but he also possesses a touch of smooth European pop. His new CD, Out Of Myself, is in a word uplifting, and his love for artists like Bob Dylan and Ray Davies shines through and their influences runs rampant throughout the LP. Track four, "I Wish", showcases Benjamin's maturity and proves that pop music doesn't have to be silly and simple. On the other spectrum, "There Is A Girl" is more of a straight up pop song, but it is crafted well enough to keep the listener interested. "Lights In The Sky" and "Sun Is Shining" both feature beautiful harmonies and drums/keyboards that are very similar to New Order. There are even slower ballads on the album that are sure to please as well such as "Give Me The Grace" and "She's Away". Benjamin Diamond paves the gateway for less dance inspired people to become acquainted with !K7, and for !K7 groupies to be introduced to something new and fresh.
