Why is it that every other band I find out about is from California? Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining, I’m just in admiration of the amount of talent coming from the Golden State? (I’m a born and raised East Coaster, too.) Headlining that pool of talent is disco house duo Rainbow Arabia. Their song “Boys and Diamonds” combines so many of my favorite musical elements — a danceable beat, uniquely sampled sounds inspired by world music, and a female singer (girl power!).
Speaking of West Coast musical awesomeness, Coachella is going on right now! I’d love to know if you’ve come across a new fave band there, in addition to what you think of Rainbow Arabia!
