Rosie Darling Shares “Golden Age” From Sophomore EP ‘Golden Age’ (August 12) + US Tour Dates with Caleb Hearn
June 24, 2022 BY Danielle Romeo
Boston-born, LA-based artist Rosie Darling shares “Golden Age,” the title track from her sophomore EP this summer. She’s the kind of anomaly who pushes pop music forward by uncompromisingly embracing her artistic impulses and following them to unprecedented heights.
A song about wasted youth, Rosie had this to say: “the pandemic impacted the mental health of lots of people my age. It felt like the so-called ‘best years of my life’ were slipping away a little, so I wanted to write about that feeling of longing to live out those moments everyone wants to have in their 20s.”
For the EP, Rosie worked with writers Matt Rad (Niall Horan, James Arthur, Little Mix), Justin Gamella (FINNEAS, Bella Poarch, Lennon Stella, Ashe, Aoki, Kaskade), Cooper Holtzsman (Zachary Knowles, Dixie) and Grammy Award-winning mixer Michael Brauer (Coldplay, John Mayer, Tony Bennett). She initially teased the project with “Always Almost” and on its heels, the single “Fucked Up Summer” that glides along on delicate acoustic guitar before spiraling into a glitchy beat.
On September 28, Rosie will head out with labelmate and fellow songwriter Caleb Hearn on a string of West Coast dates, starting September 28 in Seattle, WA.
“I can’t believe I’m going on tour,” says Rosie. “I’m so excited to sing my songs live. I feel like I’ve been waiting so long to do this. It will be my first tour and Caleb’s too. I’m glad we get to experience this first touring adventure together!”
Rosie Darling is quietly confident, exuberantly passionate, and creatively inclined to infinity. She’s highly aware of herself and the world around her and continues to speak her mind with clarity and focus. Golden Age EPwill be out on August 12 via Nettwerk.

About Rosie Darling:
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). With the release of each new track, Darling earned press support from FLAUNT, EARMILK, Under The Radar, PopMatters, Wonderland, and more, while garnering 60+ YouTube features and an ever-loyal fanbase. With her first single and artist statement – “Coping” – Rosie amassed40 million+ combined streams, 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, including Justin Gammella (FINNEAS, Ashe), producer Andy Seltzer (Chelsea Cutler, Shallou, Joan), mixer Michael Brauer (Coldplay, Florence, and the Machine), and Joe Laporta (Halsey, JP Saxe, Gracie Abrams). 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. In the loneliness of her 20s in isolation and amidst an increasingly digital world, Golden Age captures big, pent-up feelings from the past two years and pairs them with her signature flowing melodies and gut-wrenching lyrics.
