Rosie Darling Releases Debut EP ‘Coping’ (Out Now Via Nettwerk Records)
April 7, 2021 BY Nettwerk
Intense emotional growth is often the best fuel for a musician’s creative fire, and Rosie Darling has certainly turned pain into beauty on her debut EP Coping (via Nettwerk Records). Coping is a time capsule, capturing the messier side of love and friendship, from heartbreak and loneliness to joyous revelry. It’s an intimate window into Rosie’s life, encased in a vulnerable kind of indie-pop.
“A lot of people have been asking me how long I’ve been working on this EP. The easy answer is a few years, but it feels like it’s been my whole life! Everything I’ve written or been a part of musically has led to this moment, and I truly feel like these songs represent me not only as an artist but as a person. These songs represent my experience with relationships, friendships, and all of the emotional highs & lows that come with them. I hope that anyone who listens to these songs can relate and find their narrative within them. Although my stories are important, I want to create space for listeners to reflect on their experiences and feel like they have somewhere to turn to as they navigate the highs & lows of their relationships!”
With the release of each single, Darling had earned press support from FLAUNT, EARMILK, Under The Radar, PopMatters, Wonderland, and more, while garnering 40+ YouTube features, 18k Instagram and nearly 17k TikTok followers. With her first single and artist statement – “Coping” – Rosie amassed 8 million+ Spotify streams (14 million+ streams across all platforms), charting on 14 different Spotify Viral 50 charts, landing Top 20 on the Global Viral Chart. A talented team of songwriters, producers, and engineers reached out from the onset, wanting to collaborate with Rosie – co-written with Justin Gammella (Lennon Stella, Ashe, Blake Rose), produced by Andy Seltzer (Chelsea Cutler, Shallou, Joan), mixed by Michael Brauer (Coldplay, Florence and the Machine, Vance Joy), and mastered by Joe Laporta (Halsey, JP Saxe, Gracie Abrams).
