Nina Diaz’s first band, Girl in a Coma, came out of the San Antonio punk scene, but it was soon apparent that the singer possessed a majestic voice that transcended genre limitations and soared straight into pure pop. The young trio attracted the attention of Joan Jett, who signed them to her label, and Morrissey, who asked them to open one of his tours. Diaz was just 13 years old in 2006, when she joined her older sister Phanie Diaz and Jenn Alva in the band, which was named after Morrissey’s old Smiths reverie “Girlfriend in a Coma.” Two years ago, Diaz decided to take a break from the group. The new single, “January 9th,” from solo album The Beat Is Dead, is a romantic power ballad that starts off quietly before Diaz’s vocals well up with her trademark rich and lustrous tone.
