Discovery: darby

Hailing from Sydney, Australia, darby is a bedroom pop artist who has been receiving critical acclaim in the national media back home for her debut single Suburbia, released back in 2020. Her latest is called At The Beach and I gave it a listen.

Darby’s dreamy vocals captivated me right away. Singing over a chilled electric guitar riff, the track has something of a hypnotic feel to it, but what kept me listening was the poetry and storytelling in the lyrics. Steeped in emotion, it tells a tale of grief and heartbreak. It’s all utterly beautiful.

She’s definitely one to watch out for. You can hear At The Beach below.
