The UK’s pre-eminent super-creative multi-talented polymath Darling BOY returns with the video for his brand-new single ‘Oh Roisin!’. The follow up to his debut single ‘Waste My Days’, which was premiered by Clash Magazine earlier this year, is out now.
Darling BOY, or Alex Gold, (for that is his given name) is an entirely self-taught multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and actor. In 2016, he starred alongside Jonathan Rhys Meyers’ Joe Strummer in the feature film ‘London Town’, and more recently played Ian ‘Mac’ McLagan in the West End Small Faces musical, ‘All Or Nothing’.
As if all that wasn’t enough, Alex has also joined Supergrass’ Danny Goffey’s new band, switching between bass, guitar and drums.
“I bought my first Supergrass record in my teens after hearing ‘Richard III’ and thinking “fuck me, that drummer’s good”, Alex explains. “They were obviously a great band (and, uniquely among their peers, always remained so), but being a new drummer myself and totally obsessed with the instrument it was Danny Goffey’s playing that hooked me in. To be asked to join the band is completely mental.”
