This Cape Town Band Just Became a Featured Artist on Apple Music
One of the city's hottest up-and-coming bands, Diamond Thug, has just been featured on Apple Music
Four-piece indie dream-pop outfit Diamond Thug has been making waves in the local music scene since the band formed in 2012, and today, 11 April 2018, the musicians received a major boost when Apple Music announced that they had been selected for the New Artist Spotlight Campaign for the month of April.
The band has released their debut album "Apastron" at a time that has coincided with the strategy of Apple Music to support new South African artists. New Artist Spotlight is a feature used to develop local talent in the music industry.
“Since day one we’ve always appreciated how approachable Apple Music has been. They have an unrivalled open door policy for artists. It’s a huge honour to be selected as the New Artist Spotlight joining a list of artists; we’ve been blown away by their support.” says excited Diamond Thug band member Danilo Queiros.
