Originally used as a vehicle for songs pieced together in late night bedroom recordings while touring extensively as a sideman for other acts, O'Brien quickly expanded the project into a blistering four-piece live band.
2015 saw the release of Darling James' debut single, the mesmerising, sizzling, building ‘Ultimatum Talk’. From a beguiling ukulele loop to a psych-rock explosion of organs and drums ‘Ultimatum Talk’ quickly connected with listeners, was added to rotation on triple j and knocked up over 100,000 plays on Spotify. Sold-out hometown shows and interstate tours followed including spots with The Church and Dan Kelly. With an EP ready to drop in the coming months, Darling James now presents a much anticipated second single ‘The Itch’. Recorded by O'Brien in his bedroom and mixed by John Castle (Washington, Vance Joy) ‘The Itch’ is an incessant, stomping trip through fizzing synths, falsetto vocals and O'Brien's melodic pop magic.
If ’The Itch’ is just a taste of the forthcoming EP, it's going to be a big year for Darling James.
