Baroness, Windhand, Etc. Members Unite In Darling, Share “Baptists”


Baroness guitarist/vocalist Gina Gleason, Windhand frontwoman Dorthia Cottrell and Leanne Martz (who performed with Gleason in Misstallica) have formed a new band dubbed Darling. The trio debuted their below track “Baptists” earlier this month. Proceeds from the song will go towards For The Gwols. Cottrell said of the band:

“So Gina and Leanne and I have been playing and writing songs together for a little while now just having fun and trying to live out our childhood “all girl band” fantasies haha This is one of the songs we have been working on and we are nervous but excited to share it with you all!

Its an honor and a blast to play with these two extremely talented women who I am very lucky to consider two of my best friends. You can pay what you want for the song on our Bandcamp and we’ve decided to donate all the proceeds to the @forthegworlsparty fund for black trans people that helps with rent and gender affirmative surgery, as this song is about someone I loved a lot who was a part of the trans community but who sadly is no longer with us as a result of the difficulties she faced just trying to be herself.

This song is the first of many more to come, hope you guys like it!”

You can snag the song at Bandcamp.
