Our Track of the Day today comes from a young British outfit who are making a great case that they’re the band to watch out for in 2019.
A furious blend of grunge and alternative, DARMA’s music is a muscular and catchy blast of feral rock and roll that comes with a dark, melodic stomp.
The Manchester-based trio–Harry Corbett (vocals), Lloyd Whitehead (bass), and Issac Whitehead (drums)–give such new meaning to the term garage rock, that simply labeling them that falls so short of the mark, the band themselves have coined the phrase “loudquietheavypop” to more accurately describe their sonic attack.
The band’s new single “Procrasturbator” is our Track of The Day. Falling somewhere between the primal stomp of Bleach-era Nirvana and the howling intensity of the Jesus Lizard, the song is as heavy as it is harmonic.
DARMA signed an artist development deal in 2017 with Sheffield indie label Alya Records (Fizzy Blood, Rival Bones). Check out the latest single release Procrasturbator from their debut EP Gloom out now!
