US heavy duo Darko (Chelsea Grin, Emmure) have released a new single called 'Donna', and it's not the seizure-inducing, crushing heaviness you might expect given their previous few singles (they even feature in our list of heaviest songs in 2020!).
Instead, 'Donna' is a powerful and emotional tribute to drummer Josh Miller's grandmother of the same name. He says:
“This is a deep one for me, it’s called ‘Dona‘ for my grandmother who has passed away. This song is a mixture of emotions and memories From holidays and birthdays or even walking into my grandparents home to the familiar feeling of love and normality whatever that may be to you. When writing this song I had a vision come to me where I could have a video come together and capture the feelings of it all. Something real and something we all go through. getting the chance to work with Sam and also my grandfather and father for this is something that I’ll never forget. we’ve been sitting on this video a long time with a ton of other announcements and goodies soon. thank you guys for the constant support what started as a way to vent, has now become Darko. Much love to all of you, and lastly Love you grandma”
A hard-hitting music video comes with the track - have a watch below:
The duo, which also features Chelsea Grin vocalist Tom Barber, formed in early 2020 and have been drip-feeding fans singles since then, with details of a debut album expected to be revealed soon!
