DIAMANTE ELÉCTRICO PRESENTS THE FIRST SINGLE OF THEIR FORTHCOMING ALBUM "LECHE DE TIGRE" (TIGER'S MILK)
May 2022 - Diamante Eléctrico, the Colombian duo composed by Juan Galeano and Daniel Álvarez, released today "Daniboy", the first single from their forthcoming album titled "Leche de Tigre".
"Daniboy" Is a song that Galeano and Álvarez wrote as a homage and tribute to the life of their friend and colleague Daniel Bustos, who had been the architect of Diamante Eléctrico's sound since its inception. He was Galeano's studio mate, with whom he had a very tight bond, and since his sudden death in November 2020, the band wanted to pay this tribute to him. Although the death of Bustos occurred due to medical causes, unrelated to the situation in Colombia, by writing it and constantly asking themselves "Where would Daniboy be?", Galeano and Álvarez wanted to represent in "Daniboy" all the missing people in Colombia, all those who are missing from home and whose whereabouts are unknown, "hoping they are in a better place.” Thus, "Daniboy” is a tribute to the victims of forced disappearances, to the lack of truth, it is a cry for those who are no longer at home, and for those who we no longer know if they are alive or not.
"'Daniboy' is about celebrating life the way we did not learn to celebrate it in our Colombian culture and idiosyncrasy; it is about celebrating a great friend and through him giving voice and visibility to the fact that in Colombia there is a risk of going missing just from being awake, and this is something we are not going to keep our heads on. We want to be the voice of whoever is in need for this" - Diamante Eléctrico
