Boston-born, LA-based pop artist Rosie Darling arrives with her new single “Nail In The Coffin ft. Boy In Space” via Nettwerk. Produced with collaborator Justin Gammella (FINNEAS, Ashe) & Freddy Häggstam (Chainsmokers, Bebe Rexha), mixed by Yianni AP (Alexander 23, Jeremy Zucker), “Nail In The Coffin” serves as an early glimpse into her debut LP later this year.

Who were your musical influences growing up? 

Lots and lots of Taylor Swift!

Tell us about your new single Nail In the Coffin featuring Boy In Space and what inspired it? 

I’ve been a big fan of his for a while and we wanted to write something super emotional and so we wrote this over zoom! It’s about the process of ending of a relationship and how it’s really painful.

Where do you get inspiration from when writing music?

Everything! My life, poetry, and of course other artists. Some of my favorites right now are Gracie Abrams, Phoebe Bridges and Taylor Swift.

When writing – what is the process usually? 

Do the lyrics or music usually come first? It changes song by song. With the upcoming songs, I knew I had a story and message to get across. Some started with lyrics, but once we started producing the music, a lot of the rest came super naturally. It definitely takes trusting the process

If you could create the dream festival line-up – who would be on it?

The 1975, Taylor Swift, Gracie Abrams, Phoebe Bridgers! So many people it’s hard to choose!

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given so far?

Probably not to overthink your creativity! Usually your first instinct is right 🙂

You’ve collaborated with some hugely successful songwriters and producers  – what have you learnt from these other creatives? 

I think when to trust yourself and also when to push yourself. It’s always great having someone else in the room to help direct you and giving you feedback when recording to get the best takes!

What can we expect from your debut album coming later this year? 

Lots of different emotions! I’m really excited to share it with the world. I’ve been working on it for a long time 🙂
