Darian June

Pop // Cork City, Cork // she/her

Darian June is the solo project of singer/songwriter/producer and multi-instrumentalist Darian O’Shea. Darian’s sound mixes elements of current indie-pop artists like BENEE and Conan Grey with the finely detailed, hyper-pop style productions of artists like Charli XCX and Lauv. This one- woman project has been in the works for quite some time. From as early as childhood, Darian has been writing, creating and performing her own original pieces. Her passion for music only progressed in her teens when she discovered the world of Electronic Dance Music and began producing and Dj-ing at 16.

Throughout her teenage years (and over the course of several lockdowns), she has transformed and developed her sound as a self-taught producer. Darian’s melodic style reflects her passion for composition, arrangement and attention to detail within her productions and lyricism. Darian has recently completed her degree in Popular Music from MTU Cork School of Music, where she majored in piano and song-writing. In May of 2022, her first single “You Got Me” was released under the CSM Sounds label and achieved notable media attention from local radio stations and blogs.

Fast forward to August 22’, Darian will release her debut single “Prom Queen” as an independent artist under her project name, Darian June. “After spending so much of the last few years cooped up in my bedroom studio focusing primarily on my music, the idea of sharing such personal songs from my laptop to the world is a step I’ve been eagerly waiting to jump on but at the same time is slightly terrifying”. “When writing Prom Queen, I wanted to draw on emotions I experienced as a teenager and how it feels to be overlooked by any romantic interests. The theme of heartbreak is universal and I wanted to focus particularly on the teenage years as I feel that it is these years we are most vulnerable and innocent with love. We take everything to heart and become obsessed with the idea of needing to be anything but our true selves in order to impress others."
