Dorthia Cottrell, Gina Gleason and Leanne Martz joined forces in a new project called Darling; debut single »Baptists« already streaming on Bandcamp
Windhand singer Dorthia Cottrell, Baroness guitarist Gina Gleason and Misstallica guitarist Leanne Martz have recently joined forces in a new project called Darling.
Their haunting and ethereal debut single »Baptists« is already streaming on Bandcamp.
Mastered by Steve Roche at Permanent Hearing Damage.
Dorthia comments: “So Gina and Leanne and I have been playing and writing songs together for a little while now just having fun and trying to live out our childhood “all girl band” fantasies haha. This is one of the songs we have been working on and we are nervous but excited to share it with you all! Its an honor and a blast to play with these two extremely talented women who I am very lucky to consider two of my best friends. You can pay what you want for the song on our Bandcamp and we’ve decided to donate all the proceeds to the For The Gworls Party fund for black trans people that helps with rent and gender affirmative surgery, as this song is about someone I loved a lot who was a part of the trans community but who sadly is no longer with us as a result of the difficulties she faced just trying to be herself. This song is the first of many more to come, hope you guys like it!”
Leanne adds: “I’ve always maintained that nothing is better than playing music with your best friends, and I am happy to have found a new home for my musical head and heart here with Gina and Dorthia. At our Bandcamp you can hear the first song (of more to come). We have decided to donate any proceeds to For The Gworls to contribute to a fund set up to aid the black trans community, as we are advocates of exercising peace, love and acceptance to all fellow human beings. One more thing is that I also made the art.”
Dorthia Cottrell and Leanne Martz have both just participated in a bedroom cover of Type O Negative’s classic »Be My Druidess« produced by Two Minutes To Late Night crew, also featuring Lisa Mungo (Fucked And Bound, Daughters), J.R. Conners (Cave In, Nomad Stones), Stephen Brodsky (Mutoid Man, Cave In, Old Man Gloom) and Jordan Olds aka Gwarsenio Hall.
