As An Anti-Bullying Advocate, Darling Continues to Use Her Music As A Vehicle for Empowering Fans
Press Release – September, 2018 (New York, NY) – Following the latest release of her single and video “No Mirrors”, which is already garnering tons of attention and rave reviews – singer/songwriter Mariel Darling is using the inspiration behind the music to help empower others struggling with self-image and bullying.
“This is a song about being confident on the inside. People, especially young girls, are always looking for external validation” Darling says of “No Mirrors” and its message, continuing “I wanted to write a song to encourage everyone to stop trying to look a certain way or act a certain way to fit in. As young women we go through so many transformations – mind, body, soul. We need to stop trying to live up to all of the perfection”.
In the video, which sees her going through persona changes from “glam” to “raw” and finally finding inner beauty, she considered the process to be an amazing experience turning deeply personal lyrics into a unique visual representation. “I start off with a pop star look, trying to be something that I think people expect to see as a female pop star performer, and go through another phase as I look in the mirror. Done with the glam, I find myself in a kind of darker place and then transition into a simple look, nude colors, to show the raw internal me.” She says the video helped her truly express what she was going through, explaining “The teenage years are tough- with social media and all of the images you see on Instagram. It just makes you second guess who you are and try to ‘be like them’, to fit in.”
As she continues to spread her powerful message of positive self image as a staunch supporter of the anti-bullying movement, her fans can continue to find inspiration her music as more is to come in 2018!
