We Are The Darts Bring Hope with New Single 'Forgotten One'


Emerging from London’s dynamic music scene, Irish brothers Brian and Stephen, along with Shane on drums and Izaak on bass, formed We Are The Darts in 2015. Their passion for crafting anthems characterized by distinctive riffs and melodic choruses quickly set them apart. Known for their energetic live performances and unique approach to rock, the band has steadily garnered attention, with tracks like ‘Where We Stand’ and ‘Calling All’ earning widespread acclaim and even being shortlisted for the Isle of Wight Festival’s ‘New Blood’ competition in 2018. As they gear up for their debut album, ‘Who Are You Again?’, We Are The Darts are undoubtedly a band to watch in 2024.


Their latest single, ‘Forgotten One’, stands as a testament to the band's resilience and creativity, birthed from the desire to spread positivity during the dark days of the COVID-19 pandemic. The track's origins are humble, with Brian writing and recording it on an acoustic guitar in his bedroom. When the rest of the band added their ideas and suggestions, the song blossomed into a full-band anthem.


The band described the track as “a glimmer of hope that things will always get better.” This sentiment is particularly poignant considering the context in which it was written. During a time when the pandemic isolated the band members from each other, the song's message of hope and resilience resonates deeply with listeners from all backgrounds, reflecting a universal experience of shared struggle and optimism.


‘Forgotten One’ captures the essence of We Are The Darts’ ability to create music that is both deeply personal and broadly relatable. The track’s raw, acoustic beginnings, combined with the full band's input, result in a powerful and uplifting anthem. Its infectious melody and heartfelt lyrics serve as a beacon of hope, reminding us that even in the darkest times, things can and will improve.


As We Are The Darts prepare to release their debut album, they continue to demonstrate a commitment to their craft and their audience. With a growing fan base and an impressive back catalogue rich with individuality, the band is poised to make a significant impact on the music scene in 2024.
