Four albums later, Girl in a Coma continues to attract new listeners and accolades. NPR has raved about Diaz’s ”scary-good” voice and praised the band’s Exits and All The Rest as one of 2011’s best. Last month, the album, which features ranchera-glazed ballads as well as blistering punk tunes, won as Best Indie/Alt Rock Album at the Independent Music Awards.
Diaz hopes to someday actually work with Morrissey, as well as play Coachella. ”I’d like to have a chance to work with more people and experience music in all sorts of levels,” she says.
