2012 had some great summer jams (admit it, you learned every word to “Call Me Maybe”), but few were as engrossing and straight-up gorgeous as DIANA’s “Born Again.” Like M83’s “Midnight City,” it was a song that romanticized late night adventures and elevated pop music (not just indie) into something almost religious.
If you missed it during the warm months, check it out on soundcloud right now. Also, the song will soon be available as a 12” single on Forest Family Records. Perfect for blasting while doing this and possibly this.
