RELEASING THEIR NEW EP,
Obsidian Darling, a four-piece based out of Raleigh NC, combines silky and sultry vibes with crunchy guitars and a thumping rhythm section to create a new brand of rock/pop. Powerful sounds and masterful transitions make their blended set of well known covers and unique originals a must-see.
An alternative rock band from Raleigh, NC. Combining styles from a wide range of musical traditions, Merges blends a mix of rock and Bossa Nova rhythms, funk bass lines, extended guitar harmonies, and powerful, soulful vocals. These flavors create a sound that is reminiscent of acts like Incubus, and Dance Gavin Dance.
