Diamond Girl

Album: For All My Sisters (2015)

  • A line from this song: "You don't have to hear the screams of those living out their dreams," takes a jaded view of The Cribs' success. "Everyone's always working towards something you feel is going to be totally great," vocalist Ryan Jarman explained to The Independent. "When you do finally get there, you don't have anywhere else to go. So if you hit a low point, it's worse."

    "I've often thought that if you can make a living out of something you love, that's a Utopia," he continued. "But that experience can still be more negative than positive, through over-familiarity, and then you've lost everything. I was convinced after 10 years that that was it, I'd had my lot. I was so jaded and sceptical. But now I get taken back to that completely uncynical, starry-eyed kid I was, every now and again."
