Rosie has this to say about the track – “Villain is about learning to be okay with being the ‘bad guy’ in someone else’s story. For some people it is easier to blame others than to take responsibility for their role in their own suffering, and this song is my way of letting those relationships go instead of trying to continuously fix them. Once you learn that universal truth that not everyone will understand you and your heart, it is easier to let go.”

Rosie Darling’s musical journey has been marked by a series of critically acclaimed releases, each showcasing her quiet and immense talent – “Villain” is no exception. Following this single Rosie will embark on a tour with labelmate Katelyn Tarver starting on September 6.

Rosie’s debut full length album, Lanterns, is like a secret read of someone’s diary – relatable and sensitive. Words that have been used to describe Rosie range from “spirited passion” (Ones To Watch), “poetic and poised” (The Line of Best Fit) to Hunger Magazine throwing down the gauntlet with; “Her knack for lyricism rings similar to the innate talents of Taylor Swift or Olivia Rodrigo, and Darling is proving herself another mouthpiece of this generation – reveling in her emotion and layering delicate vocals over light acoustic guitar.”

Boston-born, LA-based indie-pop artist Rosie Darling is a quietly confident and passionately creative singer-songwriter, known for her signature flowing melodies and gut-wrenching lyrics. Her 2021 debut EP Coping and 2022’s Golden Age EP kick-started her rise, with over 190M+ global streams.
