Song of the Day: Good Talks – Fearing

Formed in 2016, dark post-punk band FEARING was born from an online friendship which quickly blossomed between James Rogers (bass/vocals) and Brian Vega (guitar/vocals). What started as collaborations between the two and their bedroom synth projects; Fearing was formed out of the desire to combine both of their talents and to create something new and fresh in the Bay Area. The addition of Mike Fenton (drums) & Joey Camello (guitar) helped to further expand the sound and depth of the band.

After two sold out EPs and a handful of tours under their belt; their debut LP, ‘Shadow’ – set for release on 10th April – finds the four-piece act further exploring their unique sonic territory, seamlessly blending elements of French coldwave, European post-punk, and the first wave of shoegaze to create something truly unique in today’s rising dark music scene.

The band dropped the lead single from the ten-track album, ‘Good Talks’ which encompasses taking their new-found sound to new heights…check it out below…

Star Song: Whatever- Keeping The Faith Ft Ilia Darlin

Keeping the Faith -whatever

Today’s song is Whatever by KEEPING THE FAITH featuring ILIA DARLIN.

I featured the man behind KEEPING THE FAITH dubstep connoisseur Ian Halsall a few months back with club -filler Feel It . This time he teamed up with Greek-born singer ILIA DARIN for an in-your-face, bass-bursting production, topped off by the singer’s melodic vocals –another one that’s strictly for the dance floor. Go on, have a listen!

Like her collaborator of this single, ILIA DARLIN no stranger to the music scene. Starting out in an underground electro punk band called Stiletto Scag, she went on to become one of the biggest stars in her hometown and has been hailed ‘the next biggest thing’ and the ‘Greek renaissance.’

ILIA took her career to the next level and moved to London, where she performed at numerous of venues including MTV and London Fashion Week in 2011. She was also involved in a project with Konvict Muzik record label (co-owned by AKON) and collaborated with producer and songwriter Billy Mann, who produced hits for artists including PINK, KELLY ROWLAND and CELINE DION.

Now based in LA, ILIA DARLIN is currently working on new material. If you want to keep up to date with the talented singer, please visit her website, ILIA’S BEDROOM, where you can check her much-talked-about hits.
