Darlia’s Nathan Day uses music as a means of expressing himself, of unearthing emotions,  It’s a cathartic experience, one that comes out in their intense live shows for sure, shows that almost literally refuse to let go of the imagination.

New cut ‘Beam Me Up’ is a direct example of this, with Nathan conjuring something remarkably personal.

I wrote this song because I can’t afford a therapist. I’m lucky that writing songs is a legitimate coping mechanism cos I don’t know what the fuck I’d do if I couldn’t get it out.

That’ll make more sense later.”

“I think no one wants to talk about how they feel cos they’re scared people will judge them. Sadly, that’s part of the fucking problem. I’m scared too, but this is what that songs about .
