Watch “Moonlight” by Darin – EQ Music Weblog3 min read

EQ Music Weblog readers ought to know that for the time being, I’m on a Darin excessive. This isn’t merely as a result of the Swedish pop sensation has launched “Electrical” and “Moonlight,” two English-spoken releases this yr. Furthermore, the opposite week, I used to be lucky to catch Darin dwell at his debut headline present at Colors, Hoxton. However extra on that later…

In distinction to the alluring effervescence of “Electrical,” the present single “Moonlight,” is a deliciously darkish pop providing from Darin. The slinky melody calls to thoughts digital greats corresponding to Giorgio Moroder and Jacques Lu Cont (aka Stuart Worth). Whereas Darin’s silky vocals noticeably bear the affect of George Michael. To my thoughts, Darin is filling the void of what’s been lacking in pop, particularly concerning UK listeners. A music video directed by Gustav Stegfors conveys the mysterious sensibility alluded to by the lyrical narrative. Darin dances by means of the day to nighttime within the clip, flexing strikes he’s seemingly studied from watching Michael Jackson. The clip is totally befitting of somebody deemed Sweden’s most profitable male pop artist!

Additionally, this week, we acquired a powerful bonus deal with from Darin. He shared a brand new breathtaking acoustic model of “Electrical.”

When you thought Darin had hit his peak on his heartrending monitor “Holding Me Extra,” in my view his new vocals smash by means of the glass ceiling within the newest model of “Electrical“. The interpretation is markedly completely different to the unique edit of the monitor. The vibe is strictly how I’d anticipate London Grammar to reimagine the monitor. Piano-led, intimate and atmospheric, with a smooth evocative vocal fashion. The poignant, acoustic edit brings to thoughts the haunting musicality of Chris Isaak‘s, “Depraved Sport” as effectively.

The truth is, I’m so glad Darin didn’t sing the acoustic model of “Electrical” throughout his London present. The best way it makes me really feel, I’d have been a visual wreck.

Because it was, I met up with Raj and fellow pop gig pal Ashwin at Colors, not realizing what to anticipate from this intimate Darin gig. Nevertheless, as quickly because the band struck up with the electro-pop melody of “Electrical,” we knew we have been in for a particular deal with. And boy, did Darin ship. Not solely performing the brand new songs, he dipped into the tracks from the “My Purple CloudsEP. Let’s say, Darin revealed his raunchy facet in his efficiency of “Satisfaction,” so scorching! There have been extra surprises in retailer, in the way in which of some songs launched early on in his singing profession. Specifically “Strobelight,” “Step Up,” “No person Is aware of,” and really unexpectedly “Lovekiller.”

On this small London membership, Darin didn’t reduce, he gave an intimate however appreciative viewers an arena-worthy efficiency. No phrases I write will adequately describe how superior and particular this present was. However undoubtedly, this gig can be spoken about for a very long time. Most positively, Raj, Ashwin and myself, will always remember what we skilled on June 4th, 2024 at “Colors” Hoxton.
