Track of the Day | Darlia – Ballad of Black & White

DarliaDarlia have returned with their new single ‘Ballad of Black & White’.

Out now via Ignition Records, the single comes ahead of their sold out headline London show at Camden Assembly on March 29th.

Speaking of the new single, Nathan Day explained: “I remember trying to demo this tune myself when the house was empty and it was too much for me to tackle at the time. Fortunately, I then got to work with the producer Dan Lancaster which was when I realised he might as well be a fucking magician because he’s amazing. We recorded the tune in two sessions. The first one we kinda mapped it out and it was so unfinished I don’t think I even heard it back all the way through. After the first session I think he secretly sprinkled some magic dust on it or some kind of chilli sauce cos he sent back a rough version and we were all like “FUCK – that’s unexpectedly spicy” and knew it had to be finished. “

With its vibrant hooks and contagious chorus, ‘Ballad of Black & White’ serves up a slice of old-school indie rock, providing the soundtrack to carry us through to festival season.
