Candy Darling are a three piece from Bristol who seek influence from bands such as The Jesus and Mary Chain, Suicide and Fever Ray. With their music being described as “Proper thrilling dark pop music” by the BBC, Candy Darling have just released their debut single ‘Money’ and are guaranteed to attract some buzz around them if tracks of this quality continue to roll out.
‘Money’ is a track that exudes confidence and gets right in your face. With menacing guitars and powerful vocals from frontwomen Emily Breeze, Candy Darling have joined the ever growing list of bands with a strong female lead. It’s good that we’ve had such a sudden flux of female fronted bands, such as Perfect Pussy and Wolf Alice, as it takes attention away from all the shit #LAD bands and it shows that gender shouldn’t be an issue in the world of Indie/Rock music. Anyway back to the track… Throughout ‘Money’ there is a ominous buzzing sound that is coupled with sinister keyboards that add to whole in your face attitude of the track. It’s like the track is telling you to fuck off and it’s absolutely brilliant.
So what are you waiting for? Go buy ‘Money’.
