On Friday 3rd July Blue Fish Diamond will release their latest single, ‘Lady Marguerite’. A song about life and love, ‘Lady Marguerite’ is summer personified. The opening interplay between Rhodes piano and lead guitar sets the tone for the song, whose dynamics build from there. ‘Lady Marguerite’ will take you on a happy journey with its warm vocals, its undulating drum patterns and guitar and Rhodes riffs and it will bring you home on the crest of a viola bass wave. A welcome antidote in current times. ‘Lady Marguerite’ was recorded in Hellfire Studios in the Dublin Mountains and was produced by Gavin Glass.
Blue Fish Diamond are a Dublin based indie folk rock band who formed in late 2016. In 2018, they released their debut album ‘From Dark To Light’, which Hot Press magazine described as ”essential listening for those who like their music powerful and heartfelt”. The band released further singles in October 2019 (Morning Star) and February 2020 (Do You Wonder) along with music videos, both of which received very positive reviews.
The band’s songs are written by Jim Murphy whose influences include Neil Young, The Beatles, Leonard Cohen and R.E.M. In 2014, he began a degree course in Commercial Modern Music at BIMM music college. At BIMM, he met like-minded musicians with whom he formed the band in late 2016.
