Summer Darling

ARTIST / BAND: Summer Darling

SONG (MP3): Barren Womb

ALBUM: Health of Others E.P.

FILE UNDER: Indie / Rock / Pop

LABEL: Origami

INFO: Based in Los Angeles and formed in 2002, Summer Darling began as a three piece indie pop band with an interest in songwriting and melody. Comprised of vocalist/songwriter Ben Heywood, drummer/guitarist Dan Rossiter and bassist/vocalist Heather Bray, they released the "What's Done is Done EP" shortly thereafter, handcrafting each CD individually. In 2004 they collaborated with producer Frank Lenz (Pedro the Lion/Richard Swift/Starflyer 59) for the full length record "I Know You, I Never Knew You" and again released it themselves. The last few years have seen Summer Darling chart a different direction. With the addition of Loop Haro on drums and a more group-oriented approach to song crafting, 2008's "Health of Others" is the first of 3 digital EPs to be released this year, representing a new dynamic style.
