Nina Diaz Video Premiere: Watch ‘Trick Candle’

Nina Diaz, the leader of beloved indie rockers Girl in a Coma, has gone solo and zagged in an entirely different direction. Watch the music video for new track “Trick Candle,” premiering exclusively on Fuse, above.

Girl in a Coma received guidance from Joan Jett and an opening slot on Morrissey’s tour, but Diaz's debut full-length, The Beat Is Dead, Diaz is putting forth something more accessible but no less ferocious. With its colorful music video, “Trick Candle” celebrates Michael Hutchence from INXS, whom Diaz says is “somebody who’ll never burn out.”

“January 9th,” Diaz’s first solo track, recently premiered via Paper magazine. The singer-songwriter also performed an NPR Tiny Desk Concert in support of the upcoming album.

The Beat Is Dead is out Oct. 28, and Diaz will next be seen at SMTX Pride in San Marcos, Tex. on Sept. 10.
