Considering how seminal their debut was it is perhaps a little odd that the Stone Roses are not cited more often as influences. In an effort to redress the anomaly the Diggs do hail the Mancs as the inspiration behind their music. When you take a listen to ‘Everyones Starting Over’ you may struggle to find a resemblance but the Diggs earnest delivery is hard to resist (and after all they are signed to Sugarspun Records so that sorta counts!). In fact the tunes rapid trawl through the indie rock manual is both reassuring as it is damn uplifting after a day filled with sound of office telephones. Timothy Lannen sounds a tad detached from an energetic jangling riff as his drummer pounds out a beat that’ll challenge the faint hearted. It’s taken from the bands debut ‘Commute’, a follow up is promised for later this year.KD
