Taking inspiration from an eclectic mixture of artists ranging from Lady Gaga to Gary Barlow, Bloc Party or Grimes, Darryl Nash is keen in experimenting with sounds as he is using visual arts as part of his performance. To him, both music and art are ways of telling stories and expressing his emotions: “When I say art, for me, I spray, paint and burn musical instruments to express emotion in colour. I feel that the coloured instruments that I play catch people’s attention and work well with the music I create.”
As a DIY pro he writes, records and produces all his songs himself. Next to his work as a solo artist, he is also currently playing in a band with Glastonbury punk rocker Peter Wallis.
With his upcoming album, Darryl is touching upon the experience of love sicknesses and provokes the question whether this could actually be classified legitimately as an illness: “As you know, people do say ‘People die of a broken heart.’”
The Album ‘Love Sick’ is out on 6th May 2016.
