Come Widdit: Spark is a Diamond

Spark is a Diamond
Location: Philly, PA
Sounds Like: Hardcore with tap shoes.

Spark is a Diamond is fronted by Allison Bellavance, formerly of the massively underrated hardcore outfit, Fall River. On the surface, the band draws comparisons to other bass-less trios such as Yeah Yeah Yeahs or the infinite suckfest that was Mon Frere. Unlike the latter, however, this band is actually pretty good. Rather than relying on poorly executed songs about Orcs and vampires, Spark is a Diamond is heavy on female-male vocal interplay, guitar effects and electronic drums. While it's easy to write them off as another hipster hardcore band, you can't deny how hooky their songs actually are.
