A third single prefacing her upcoming album Coping, Rosie Darling hits a home run with “Water Me Down.” This song is heavy on production, with pop synths and dope distortions left and right, but somehow keeps its core to be hauntingly authentic.
Check it out:
Turninb pain into beauty, Darling’s debut EP Coping, set for release on April 2 (via Nettwerk Records). Coping is a time capsule, capturing the messier side of love and friendship, from heartbreak and loneliness to joyous revelry. It’s an intimate window into Rosie’s life, encased in a vulnerable kind of indie-pop.
Speaking to Under The Radar, Rosie said, “After living in LA for a few years, I’ve experienced my fair share of judgment, whether in the music industry or my day-to-day friendships. As I grow, I recognize who is loving and supporting me unconditionally. ‘Water Me Down’ is about realizing who those people are and embracing them while also being brave enough to let go of those I want to fix or change; I’ve learned the hard way that I am not responsible for their choices. This song is sort of a note to self about remembering your worth and that you are ALREADY enough. You are already “flowing over” with worth, and no one is allowed to take that away from you.”
If I were you, which I am sadly not, I would definitely give this lady a listen. Authenticity is difficult to come across, with high production seeming to be a distraction from meaningfulness. But, Darling hits the hammer on the nail, saying what’s on her mind whether anyone likes it or not, and that should not be ignored.
