Diodes new new single Little Rock Star 3/3/14!!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, Diodes here, formerly known as diotrans!

I am super excited to announce that today I am releasing a new original song, Headlines: http://diodesmusic.bandcamp.com/

It’s available on BandCamp as a name-your-price download, which means you can have it for FREE if you like!

“Headlines” is an original acoustic pop song that features my vocals and guitar, and has been mixed/mastered by the illustrious zircon. I have been working on an original album of this style for quite some time now, and have decided that instead of waiting for the entire thing to be done before any of it sees the light of day, I will be releasing singles as they are ready. The second single from this album will be ready very soon as well, so stay tuned.

I will also be making this and future releases available through other services, such as iTunes and Amazon, and I’ll post updates as they become available.

I’d just like to thank OCR and the entire community for giving me a platform for sharing my music. OCR has shaped me as a musician, and the quality of this track would not be as good as it is if it hadn’t been for OCR.

To stay updated on future releases, you can follow me...

Good opportunity to mention: Nice name change. Get frustrated of everyone asking what it's like to be a trans dino? Though the name does conjure a vibe more electronic than acoustic.

Cool expressive song. Best art comes about through agony. :-|

Hey guys, thanks everyone so much for your kind words and supporting my single. <3 I love you guys! I still have a ton of work to do on promotion and getting it out there, and knowing that at least some of you really appreciated it helps me feel all the more motivated to do so. :) So it really means a lot to me.

To answer some questions/points that were brought up:

Moguta, I don't know whether you were kidding or serious, but yes, I have gotten asked on very rare occasion whether I am trans. That was not really a primary concern for me in changing the name. I wanted something that would be more memorable, catchy, and pronounceable. I figured since Diodes is recognizable as an actual word, it might work better. I just think it would have more appeal as a name to a broader audience, whereas diotrans is just sort of esoteric-sounding. To me, Diodes is also evocative of shining lights, as in light-emitting diodes, so it has a bit of meaning to me as well. You gotta have sparkle!

I do agree with you that it sounds more electronic than acoustic. I actually want more to be an electronic artist than an acoustic one. This acoustic album was a project I started a couple of years ago, and I intend to see it through because it's important to me. So right now, it just so happens that what is coming out is acoustic music. I am also working on electronic music, and I think eventually in the long-term, will be making more music in that style.

Yes I was joking about the "trans dino" thing. Especially with your Koopa avatar here, I would often misread your name as dinotrans. Hence the dino and trans halves of my attempt at humor.

Cool to hear you're delving into electronic music as well. Anyway, I enjoyed the passion infused into Headlines' vocals. ..."they all say the same damn thing"... :)
