Published Jan 26, 2011Last year, Diamond Rings unleashed one of the most undeniably catchy dance albums in recent memory with Special Affections. While the album was a glammy, electro pop masterpiece, it turns out beneath John O'Regan's glittery persona lies a humble folk singer.
A recent performance on Q TV finds the singer going the acoustic route on "Something Else." While the original bumped along to pre-programmed dance club beats, this tender, Americana-style take on the number would be well suited for a quiet morning at the coffee shop.
That's no slag, though. Sometimes, as O'Regan demonstrates here, you just need to chill.
