In the time since the release of their album Bring on the Comets in 2007, the two core members of VHS or Beta packed up and moved from Louisville, Kentucky to Brooklyn, New York. The shift in location resulted in a change of direction for their music, which has become even more electronic and dance-oriented than before. Diamonds and Death, the band's third full-length album, reflects their extensive experience as DJs and remixers, with bright synthesizer parts bouncing off of hyper-kinetic live and programmed beats. The album won't hit stores until September 27th, but you can download its vibrant first single "Breaking Bones" for free right now.

Song Stories


Mariah Carey | 1995

Serendipity stuck when Mariah Carey rediscovered the glitchy Tom Tom Club hook, a sample of which is the heart of this upbeat slice of dance pop. "I had the melody idea for 'Fantasy' and I was listening to the radio and heard 'Genius of Love,' and I hadn't heard it in a long time," Carey said. "It reminded me of growing up and listening to the radio and that feeling the song gave me seemed to go with the melody and basic idea I had for 'Fantasy.' I initially told [co-writer] Dave Hall about the idea, and we did it. We called up the Tom Tom Club and they were really into it."
