We are proud to present you "life & how to live it," from darlingd. The second full length spawned from the artist that was greatly influential in the forming of Path of Allyson, Dimmerswitch, and Henry.Sam.Ocean from the Atlanta music scene. From the roots of known acts such as "Sugar," "School of Fish", and "Toad the Wet Sprocket," darlingd drives the lines between pop and dark wave. "life & how to live it" was recorded with producer Gavin Fisher (the ajax heavies & dimmerswitch) at Romperroom Studios in Los Angeles, CA. Incorporating different musicians in the recording process, the record shines as it shows a tightly-rocked-package filled with emotion to unparalleled levels.
"One band. Lots of fun. From the first song to the last, this is an enjoyable, catchy listen. Everything's stupendous, nothing's inadequate." -Indieville.com
"a startling discovery because of the outright excellence of these songs coming out of nowhere from an unsigned artist-not to mention Taylor's heartfelt, raw, and sublime singing. It's an intriguing glimpse into an as-yet undiscovered songwriter's potential." -Rockbites Alternative Daily
"DarlingD's music is a distinctive riposte to the mood pop of the late 80's and 90's. Through lightly battered guitar riffs and sub-baritone vocals, DarlingD recaptures the spirit of the pop-meets-alternative movement with out sacrificing inventiveness."
-Pete Knapp, Shut Eye Records Owner
"Reminiscent of Sugar with the style and energy of modern emo bands with a twist of dark-wave"
-David Stone, WGHR Program Director
