For more information about Darling view our two introduction videos below.
Darling are a pop-rock band founded by Gary Harding and James McGuire in early 2012. The pair from North Dublin compose and record songs that are direct, gutsy and always grab attention. Prior to Darling they came from a background where the attitude and image stylings of indie post-punk took centre stage, secondary were the merits of a great song. Now the song is the star and the duo have been laser focused on harnessing a pop instinct and writing music for the masses.
Gary: “We confined ourselves to a studio environment for 7 months with guitars and pianos, a 7-year old mac and some glitchy software trying to write stuff that moved us and was worthy of real pop music. We listened to the giants and studied them and just wrote and wrote. We wanted to write music that would sound just as solid in 20 years.”
The band worked with renowned producer Stephen Lipson at his London base to record some songs. Stephen knows his pop. Many of the foremost pioneering names in pop have entrusted their sound to Stephen, among them, Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Grace Jones, Ultravox and Pet Shop Boys.
