Indie-pop artist Rosie Darling releases her debut album 'Lanterns' via Nettwerk – an exploration of confessions, heartbreak and acceptance. Rosie has entwined her lyrical prowess with her honeyed vocals to create a record that is utterly raw and genuine to her.

Rosie’s latest emphasis track from the record is "The Longest Goodbye”, a heartfelt reflection on the enduring pain and nostalgia of a past relationship that lingers, despite attempts to move on. Each track illuminates different facets of her life and emotions taking us on an intimate yet anthemic journey. 

The result of Rosie’s remarkable talent and exceptional collaborations, including Justin Gammella (FINNEAS, Ashe), Wynter Bethel of Tommy Lefroy and Swedish-based songwriters Boy in Space, Hilda Stenmalm, is a stunning collection of poetic alt-pop tracks that unpack the emotions of young adulthood. ‘Lanterns’ challenge us to look within and accept all that life throws at us. 

In Rosie’s words, “I want to celebrate the thorny process, feel the pain of it and hopefully, find healing. I want to encourage people to have a stronger heart and an appreciation of who we are becoming no matter what life throws at us. Let’s get to the other side!” 

LA-based indie-pop artist Rosie Darling is a quietly confident and passionately creative singer-songwriter, known for her signature flowing melodies and gut-wrenching lyrics. Her 2021 debut EP 'Coping' and 2022’s 'Golden Age' EP kickstarted her stratospheric rise, with over 200+ million global streams and the title-track “Coping” having swept up viral charts on Spotify – charting on Viral 50 playlists in 8 markets across Asia and Top 20 on the Global Viral Chart, and support from the likes of VH1 India, MTV Asia, Rolling Stone India, Billboard Indonesia and more. 

“Shimmery introspective indie pop.” 
– Under The Radar 

“Darling nails those quiet moments, but also balls up her frustration in affecting big-picture questions: “What did you want from me? / I gave you everything.” 
– Billboard 

“Rosie’s journey as an artist both personally and professionally centers around embracing and leaning into growth, change, and evolution – themes anyone can relate to.” 
– V Magazine
