Maria Deirisarri’s ‘Diamond’ Cuts Deep Into One’s Heart and Soul

Maria Deirisarri’s ‘Diamond”’is a dark alt-pop exploration of freedom, inspired by her mom’s jewelry business.  

Maria Deirisarri, the rising Latina pop artist who blends her culture into the music scene by infusing her heritage into her artistic identity, dazzles her audience with the upcoming alt-pop single ‘Diamond’ out today. ‘Diamond’ illustrates a dark ambivalence akin to the styles of artists like Billie Eilish, filling the track with an insecure feeling of wanting freedom without being sure how to pursue it.

Keeping listeners mesmerized with an emotionally-ripping tempo alongside powerful vocals that showcase her astounding composition ability at the young age of 16, Maria was inspired to write the song as a gift for her mother who works as a Gemologist and fine jewelry designer. “My mom is a Gemologist and fine Jewelry Designer who asks for a new diamond as a gift on any special occasion…. so it’s become a family joke and an excuse to talk and speculate about the beauty and value humanity has assigned to those unique stones, the hardest most coveted crystals representing human’s love, when the love lasts,” says Maria.

Having listened to thousands of stories from her mom about engagements and divorces, life and death, celebrations, and legal disputes, the “insane” fascination towards diamonds captivated her mind resulting in Maria’s musical rumination on the passionate desire for a diamond at the beginning, the blindness towards it beauty, the greed, the need, and then ultimately the unexpected whimsical pauses as she reflects about ownership in a relationship.
