Members of Baroness and Windhand Team Up for New Song and Charity Effort
Windhand singer Dorthia Cotrell, Baroness guitarist Gina Gleason, and Gina’s Misstallica bandmate Leanne Martz have teamed up in a new band called Darling. The trio has released their first song, “Baptists,” a haunting, atmospheric, down tempo number that’s equal parts downtrodden, uplifting and all parts melancholy.
All proceeds from sales of the song will go towards the @forthegworlsparty fund to help benefit Black trans people with rent and gender affirmative surgery.
Explains Cotrell of the motivations behind writing the song and the decision to donate its proceeds:
“So Gina and Leanne and I have been playing and writing songs together for a little while now just having fun and trying to live out our childhood “all girl band” fantasies haha This is one of the songs we have been working on and we are nervous but excited to share it with you all! Its an honor and a blast to play with these two extremely talented women who I am very lucky to consider two of my best friends. You can pay what you want for the song on our Bandcamp and we’ve decided to donate all the proceeds to the @forthegworlsparty fund for black trans people that helps with rent and gender affirmative surgery, as this song is about someone I loved a lot who was a part of the trans community but who sadly is no longer with us as a result of the difficulties she faced just trying to be herself. This song is the first of many more to come, hope you guys like it!”
