The band are due to release of the second track from their debut self-titled EP. “Sail Away”, according to lead singer Gary Harding, “addresses a bigger theme”. In the few months since making their debut, Darling have been featured by MTV’s new music site MTViggy.com and been named on Today FM’s 14 for 2014 ones to watch list. The blogosphere have been taking note too. Influential NY based Nylon Mag, Earmilk, Pigeons & Planes, Nialler9, The Thin Air, Alfitude, Harmless Noise and more have been singing the praises of the duo’s musical talents.
Darling formed in 2013, after their previous band had fallen apart, Gary Harding and James McGuire, sat down in a cafe and scribbled down everything they wanted to achieve and everything they wanted to avoid in a new band. The next 12 months was spent working out of the spare room in Gary’s parent’s house, teaching each other the merits of songwriting and studying the greats.
Renowned pop producer Stephen Lipson heard a snippet of one of their demos somewhere or another. Stephen knows his hits. Many of the foremost pioneering names in popular music have entrusted their sound to Stephen, among them, Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Grace Jones, Ultravox and Pet Shop Boys. Within a few weeks the boys where holed up in Steve’s West London studio sprinkling magic on some demos. These session more than anything let them know they were on the right path. Under Steve’s expert tutelage their songs took life and a blueprint was laid down.
The band recently supported White Lies, playing to a sold out crowd in the Ambassador Theatre to celebrate St.Patricks Day. See Darling in Whelan’s on Friday 23rd of May. Tickets on sale now!
