Rosie Darling is the perfect moody, pop synth singer-songwriter for an afternoon when driving through the canyon. This might be from personal experience, but her songs about love and growth are too incredible not to resonate. We go to talk to the songstress about her EP, tour, and more!
Rosie, so great to talk to you! What are you most likely looking forward to on tour?
Rosie: Definitely hearing people sing along with me! It is my first tour, so it's uncharted territory for me, so I'm excited to experience all of it!
So tell me, what was it like to create this EP?
Rosie: I wrote this EP during covid and sort of about the different highs and lows I think we all experienced during this time. The pandemic brought about a lot of changes for everyone, and I just wanted to capture those feelings of sadness, grief, anger, etc., while also keeping the songs upbeat so they weren't too depressing!
Which of the tracks is your favorite?
Rosie: Say Less! I just love how it's a rant about life and relationships and all of my frustrations.
And which of the ones are you most proud to put into the world?
Rosie: All of them!!!
Who are some artists that have inspired you that have helped you shape your sound?
Rosie: So many. I'd say Coldplay, Halsey, and Taylor Swift, just to name a few 🙂
What's next for this year?
Rosie: Hopefully, more shows, and more music!
"At 15 years old, I begged my mom to take me to Walmart to get Taylor Swift's debut deluxe album and I never turned back. This was my very first entry point to stan fandom. Growing up in Memphis, Tennessee I was exposed to a ton of music - from rapping 3 6 Mafia to bopping to Justin Timberlake's solo discography. Now, in LA have a day job working in nonprofit development, but by night, I'm a full-fledged fangirl. I'll listen to generally any genre, but I'm a sucker for a good pop song. If you ever need someone to scream sing Carly Rae Jepsen's E·MO·TION with, I'm your girl. No, I still have not gotten over the One Direction hiatus. Please continue to respect my privacy.
