Boston's Prateek continues his musical evolution. His latest single, "Diamonds," is still rooted in folk and roots music, but it sees Prateek experimenting with a few different genres. It's a little like a ramblin' folk song mixed with blues, soul, and early R&B. There is also more than a little of a rock edge to this one, especially in the guitar solos which are indie rock solos mutating into blues. This song is an absolute epic. For Prateek to have gone from a fairly straightforward singer-songwriter to "Diamonds" with its meandering between genres and styles shows a huge amount of growth as an artist. If you haven't yet, it's time to join us on the Prateek bandwagon ASAP.
