Darlia - Beam Me Up

Returning with a brand new sound, Darlia return with their infectious new single, Beam Me Up. As its unassuming piano led intro steadily unfolds, we get hit with their signature brash guitars and soaring vocal energy yet there appears to be a refined mellowing to their sound. Speaking on its release Nathan Day had the following to say: "It amazes me how brutally open you can be in songs and not even wince when it gets put out into the world. It's like walking around with a sign on your head telling everyone what you're secretly thinking but never actually saying the words in conversation. I wrote this song because I can't afford a therapist. I'm lucky that writing songs is a legitimate coping mechanism cos I don't know what the fuck I'd do if I couldn't get it out. It deffo can't stay in here though. (I'm pointing to my brain). I wrote it on piano, during a debilitating battle with my body and mind - felt like they were both failing me and literally falling apart before my eyes and I couldn't afford the £ to fix myself. Like a 'broken doll'. That'll make more sense later. I think no one wants to talk about how they feel cos they're scared people will judge them. Sadly, that's part of the fucking problem. I'm scared too, but this is what that songs about - so fuck it". Take a listen for yourselves below.
