Darling Release Debut Album on 31st March


Gary Harding and James McGuire, two young men from Dublin, have made a substantial impact with their synth speckled, indie guitar drenched pop-rock since their birth in late 2013. The pair, who play live as a four-piece, have headlined sold out Dublin shows, made notable festival appearances and have been invited to support Echo & The Bunnymen, White Lies, St. Raymond, Embrace and Rae Morris. Substantial national and regional airplay of their two Stephen Lipson produced EP’s followed, in addition to national TV and critical acclaim.

Darling began working with rising producer Philip Magee (Kodaline, The Script) early in 2016 recording demos and it quickly became clear an album would soon be ready.

Gary says “The goal was always to put together a body of work that represented who we are. This is a record about relationships. It’s about the two relationships that define and have defined the last decade of my life. When I listen to the record that’s what I hear.”

Lead single Bright Light Switch has been Today FM’s Homegrown Heroes track of the week, appeared as a first play on 2FM’s Eoghan McDermott show and has been playlisted by A&R Worldwide’s Sat Bisla on his Passport Approved radio show across 60 stations worlwide from KROQ in LA to FLUX FM in Berlin and been added to multiple Spotify playlists. Darling play live in Gibson Guitars Studio store in Berlin in March and release second single ‘It’s Only Love’ soon after.
