Published Aug 11, 2014Darren Eedens is a staple of Toronto's live music scene, playing in and around the city multiple nights a week, and now he's preparing to release his debut full-length. Before Of My Word drops on August 25, the single "Darlin'" can be streamed on Exclaim.ca.
The song is a rustic country number with a brisk minor-key bounce, distant slide textures and quivering, vibrato-heavy duet vocals. Take a listen below.
On August 25, Eedens will perform at the Supermarket in Toronto. This show will serve as an album release party, but it will also be a going-away show, as Eedens will be touring and living in Europe for the next 12 months. During the show, Eedens will be joined by the Old Salts, Dick Rodan, Crooked House Road and other guests.
