Darlinghurst are a four-piece band each of whose members has an extensive background in music. When they combined their talents they immediately captured listener attention and chart success. They released their self-titled album in 2021 and won the Golden Guitar for New Talent of the Year in 2022. Their latest single is ‘Pretty Doesn’t Make You Good’.
Recently I spoke to singer Cassie Leopold, who said of the single, ‘Trying to escape what the world sells: “what success should look like” is a narrative that continues and one that has a much further reach than ever before. Our personal internal dialogue, self-deprecating, body loathing struggle is real, and this system is deeply unconscious, yet faithfully repeated.’
