Darla Farmer

df_preview_1 (low rez)


Playfully drawing their name from that of a simple Nashville bank teller, Darla Farmer is an eccentric 7-piece carnival-rock band that manages to gracefully shatter genre borders in ways that even the most critical of hipsters can’t pigeonhole.

Drawing from influences as diverse as Cursive, Blood Brothers, Tom Waits, and the greatest of high school marching bands and small town orchestras, Darla Farmer creates an entirely distinctive, yet universally appealing sound.

Darla Farmer recorded their new album “Rewiring the Electric Forest” in Omaha, NE at Mike Mogis’ studio and quickly gained positive traction with the city’s own Saddle Creek bands, including Bright Eyes, Maria Taylor, and Cursive.

The career of Darla Farmer has blossomed in the past year, having shared the stage with acts including Cloud Cult, LoveLikeFire, Eagle Seagull and more.

Look for their full-length debut album available on Paper Garden Records!
