Darlinghurst is a band of individuals who bring their experience in music together to create a contemporary Country Music sound that has a unique fingerprint. Cassie joins Gman to yarn about their new release “GOTTA GO RODEO” Gotta Go Rodeo was co-produced by Pete Dacy and Darlinghurst’s Jason Resch at Secret Sound Studios and mixed by Grammy Award winner Jack Joseph Puig. The acoustic video was also filmed at Secret Sound Studios as part of a fun afternoon early this year. States band member Pagan Newman,
“We didn’t realise it at the time but this wonderful afternoon where we filmed our unplugged acoustic set live, was one of the last times we could be together in one room. Together we experienced a taste of the isolation that was to come." Gotta Go Rodeo was inspired, said band member Cassie Leopold by this crazy place in Moama NSW that Cassie and Pagan would head to on the odd occasion. “Gotta Go Rodeo is essentially about a place owned by friends of Pagan's and mine who throw the most craziest parties. As you enter a sign reads leave your inhibitions at the gate and everyone that enters generally does that. It’s about escaping whatever's bringing you down or holding you back and letting your hair down."
Along with the Australian radio airplay and chart success Darlinghurst have just recently established a beachhead in the US Country market with their debut release So Long So Long entering the Music Row Top 100 radio chart.Gotta Go Rodeo tells us that we all need to cut loose from time to time even to the point of "square dancing in a roundhouse” so as to enjoy life’s brief joyous moments with family and friends - more so than ever right now … “So turn it on, turn it up and get dancing!”
