The brave Oysterband is back! For decades the British haven't let themselves be bribed, record album after album and visit for their concerts, among other things, rather strange looking church halls in German provincial nests. But also there they find their enthusiastic fans, who can appreciate the sometimes exalted, sometimes melancholic sound of the Oysterband. Of course the follow-up album to the cooperation with June Tabor Oysterband is pure and as you know it: solid folk rock deeply rooted in British traditions with a socially critical claim. However, according to the band, one has now become more positive: One does not want to underline so much what one finds bad about the world, but rather what one enjoys about it. And so "Diamonds On The Water" has become an album about nature, about cohesion, carried by euphoric melodies that will once again grab the skeptics. Just like the band has always managed to do.
