Diagram of the Heart were an electronic-pop duo which consisted of members Anthony Gorry and Kye Sones from London, England.

They also released the song "Did I?" on 17 October 2010.

Throughout September and October, Diagram of the Heart accompanied BBC Radio 1 DJ Jo Whiley on her freshers tour, throughout which they previewed a cover of British band The xx's "Islands".[3]
