Darling West experienced a spectacular breakthrough in their musical career after the release of their second album, «Vinyl and a Heartache» in 2016. They were awarded a Norwegian Spellemann award (equivalent of Grammy), listed on Norway’s biggest radio channels and appeared on the Top 100 Country charts in the US. They have played shows all over the world – among the highlights are several of Norway’s biggest festivals, SXSW in Texas, Americanafest in Nashville, a tour with Sam Outlaw and a support slot for Lucinda Williams. Those are many highlights. They have also had more than three million plays on Spotify, appearing in several influential playlists. Always ambitious and restless, the band didn’t rest on their acquired laurels. Contrarily, they headed straight into the studio to record the follow-up to «Vinyl and a Heartache». Darling West’s third album, the self-produced «While I Was Asleep», contains ten new songs, and was released in February 2018. Although they have added drums, the band stays true to their sound and still plays the sweet Americana/Country/Folk music they are known for. Moreover, the new album demonstrates a revitalized Darling West, with more drive in the music and even catchier melodies than before. In January 2018 they played three shows at the prestigious Eurosonic music festival in the Netherlands and unveiled their most recent album’s fourth single, «Loneliness». A visit to Folk Alliance in Kansas City coincided with the album release date, and provided a fitting arena for the launch of «While I Was Asleep». Darling West’s career continues its trajectory upward, and 2019 promises to be even more exciting and affirming. WWW.DARLINGWEST.NO
