“Echoes” by Irish duo Darling has a cinematic hook, powerful guitar chords, and charged lyrics. It’s reminiscent of a track by The Police or The Killers with a charming melody that deserves our full attention. [MTViggy.com]

Since their birth in late 2013, Darling (Gary Harding and James McGuire, two young men from Dublin) have made a substantial impact with their synth speckled, indie guitar drenched pop-rock. The pair, who play live as a four-piece, have headlined sold out Dublin shows, made notable festival appearances and have been invited to support Echo & The Bunnymen, White Lies, St. Raymond, Embrace and Rae Morris. Substantial national and regional airplay followed in addition to national TV and critical acclaim.
Signed the Faction Records (James Vincent McMorrow, Jape) the band have released 2 Stephen Lipson (Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Grace Jones, Ultravox and Pet Shop Boys) produced EPs.
The band are currently recording with Philip Magee (The Script, Kodaline) on their debut album due for release late 2016.
