"Music is a bit like a card trick," explains Darlia frontman Nathan Day, and the British three-piece sure know how to play a winning suit. Bursting forth with debut single ‘Queen Of Hearts, Darlia lured fans and industry alike; landing Zane Lowe’s Next Hype Record on BBC Radio 1 and  full rotation on triple j.


“Candyman has Seattle grunge running through its veins and scuzzy, distressed guitars… 

Day's unholy howl stands Darlia out as damn fine song-writers with attitude.” – NME


“Candyman is every bit as tasty as its name suggests… swirling refrains, sprawling rhythms 

and an echoing chorus will easily cement the track in your mind.” – The Line Of Best Fit



Despite the band having formed less than a year ago, Day – still fresh from his teens – has been plotting, planning and scheming this moment since before he can remember. A combination of isolation at school, shyness and anxiety meant he wasn't big on communication until music came into his life. Joined by drummer Jack Bentham – the only other musician Day knew upon leaving school – and bassist Dave Williams, the Blackpool trio evoke early '90s grunge, albeit a particularly British take on that most American of genres.  It's all underpinned by a heady dose of melody, though not at the expense of the undeniable and infectious drive that has seem them this far.
