Musical prodigy and rising pop icon Luke Darling announces the release of his second single, Dreams, an anthem for Gen Z that evokes the spirit of resistance to authority and a declaration of independence to the naysayers who deter them. Luke Darling’s Dreams captures the passion and determination that propels every dreamer forward, Gen Z or otherwise.
With a powerful rhythm and a chorus that begs to be chanted, Dreams perfectly captures the ownership of personal power to which we can all relate, in the spirit of Miley Cyrus’ Flowers.
Luke Darling elaborates on this by saying, “Dreams is one of my most honest songs. I strive to give as much passion as I can to the music that I make in hopes that others can relate. It’s really about doing things your own way and finding your own path when things get tough.”
Being the innovative multi-instrumentalist that Darling is, he masterfully combines the precision of a modern studio with the untarnished spirit of classic records on Dreams. He grew up in the City of Philadelphia and began developing his genre-bending production, writing, and performance skills at a young age, culminating in left-of-center pop that is timeless yet immediate, ambitious yet deeply relatable. Darling is the total pop package in the tradition of the icons: his artistic genius evokes the greats in a thoroughly modern and deeply authentic way.
When it comes to writing, producing and recording music, Luke Darling has a unique gift. Written, recorded, mixed and mastered in his small Los Angeles apartment with only the help of his older brother, Luke Darling truly embodies his message repeated throughout the chorus of the song: “I don’t want to go that way.” With a palpable and uncommonly powerful vulnerability and generation-bridging sound, Darling will capture your heart and soul, and will have you believing in him, and yourself, with every note.
