Darlia - Dear Diary   02 June 2014

After Darlia’s feather-ruffling EP “Candyman” the trio are back with a new single ‘Dear Diary’, which premiered on Zane Lowe’s prime time show on BBC Radio 1 last week in the UK:

 

 

 

Compared to the likes of Nirvana and Silverchair, Darlia are being touted as being at the forefront of the rock-revival by NME and The Guardian. It's hard to believe they have only been around for a year - lead singer Nathan Day just about to turn twenty. Hailing from Blackpool, in North West England, Darlia’s unassuming beginnings have excelled at a rapid pace, seeing them tour with The Libertines, drawing rave reviews from the hard to please English critics who claimed them as a highlight of the UK’s Great Escape Festival, and in July they make their way to Australia for the first time to play Splendour in the Grass and official headline sideshows in Sydney and Melbourne.

 

 

 ‘Dear Diary’ sees Dalia embracing the raw and chaotic sounds of 90's era grunge with the instantly infectious lyrics of contemporary Brit-pop, Dear Diary’ is the angsty promise you wanted to hear as a teenager: “I can be your pretty little Dear Diary / You can tell me all your secrets” growls an unaffected Day, with the backdrop of squealing guitars and furious drums. The accompanying video captures the message perfectly as a teen girl leans as close as possible into her gramophone, notebook in hand as the band energetically perform - just out of her reach. 

 

 

"So raw! So fresh! It’s been a while since I heard something new and guitar-driven, which packed so much punch." - SCENEWAVE

 

"This raucous trio blends raw Seattle-grunge with their own flavoursome Brit-pop: a tasteful nod to the past, amid fresh sugar-drenched vigor." - VULTURE

 

"Pedaling a gentle punk sound with, at times, heavy garage influences, darlings Darlia spin an impressive debut EP…" - RIP IT UP
