L.A.-based quartet Oh Darling’s buoyant new-wave pop has the power to turn the most forbidding club crowd into a sea of grinning fan-geeks. But their reach extends well beyond area venues – several Oh Darling tunes have graced top-rated TV series, film and commercials.
Guitarist Daven Hall, singer-keyboardist Jasmine Ash, bassist J.Marie Hall and drummer Jake Endicott began playing together in 2006 in Portland, Oregon; L.A. became their base of operations in 2009. Ash’s gossamer vocals are undergirded by surprisingly muscular arrangements and wild tempo shifts, as the band alternates melodic sweetness with propulsive rock
Oh Darling have toured up and down the West Coast numerous times and appeared at venues like the Doug Fir, Mississippi Studios, Bottom of the Hill, Cafe Du Nord, Viper Room, Satellite (Formerly Spaceland), The Roxy Theater and the Hotel Café; they’ve shared stages with indie favorites like The 88, Fitz & The Tantrums, White Sea, Anya Marina, Alberta Cross, The Features, Asobi Seksu, The Submarines, Shonen Knife, The Duke Spirit, Everest and The Belle Brigade. Everywhere they’ve gone, they’ve left audiences spellbound and smiling.
