News :: Israel Darling ‘Band Of The Week’ on Poptarts

We’re very excited that Israel Darling has been named ‘Band Of The Week’ on Poptarts. An excerpt from the article is posted below and you can read the full article here. — Ugonna.

[Lead singer and principal songwriter, Jacob Darden] is a revelation throughout this album. His songwriting is poignant and honest…Darden’s voice is striking and emotive, but it’s also very soothing at the same time. Israel Darling is not just trying to ape its way to the top, this band truly explores the sound and fills every inch of space with sound that matches their leaders emotive delivery. — Poptarts
