One iota of distortion into “No Control” is exactly when I became a Diamond Youth fan. Their rippling, bummer euphoria is exactly the kind of breakneck, anthemic guitar music that still appeals to me, and their debut album Nothing Matters comes out today. In anticipation of that, we’re premiering the bloody, black and white video for “Thought I Had It Right.” Some of these riffs remind me of the early years of a band who helped me through my teenage angst, Minneapolis emo-rockers Motion City Soundtrack. Songs that are mostly about regret and fucking up should shred the way this one does, providing momentary relief from remorse. Here’s the Max Moore-directed video. -- Stereogum
