Sometimes, truth can’t be explained. But it can be felt, running wild through a song. “I don’t want to tame myself.

Darla is an 8-piece progressive funk group from Philadelphia. Self-described ‘basement blender funk,’ the band’s sound is a melding of its raw origin in the Philly basement scene and keen compositional focus on feeling the groove. At its core, the Darla sound is driven by a powerful horn section that wields a lyrical and catchy sense of phrasing. Their efforts are matched by a jarring and methodical rhythm section that has been described as ‘Steely Dan with Dave Grohl on drums’. Read more
