Biography

APACHE DARLING are pop songwriters Stefanie Lawrence (vocals) and Andrew Black (keyboards), Charlotte Printer (bass) and Danny Kelly (drums).

Formed in Glasgow Scotland, they describe their sound as ‘The New Pop’- classic songwriting with fuzzy analogue synths and a soaring vocal, reminiscent of Eurythmics, Cyndi Lauper, Sia, Phoenix and Paramore.

Record producer Eddie Kramer (Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles) describes Stefanie as “...a small girl with big lungs, a powerful Scottish female voice!”

Since their debut in July 2014, APACHE DARLING have opened for Simple Minds, Zola Jesus, Josef Salvat, Rüfüs, Howard Jones and Mates of State. They played Umbria Rock festival in Italy alongside Paul Weller and Kaiser Chiefs, Pride 2015 with Texas and Party At The Palace 2015 with Travis and Nile Rodgers. 

Their debut single won an honourable mention award at the annual International Songwriting Competition. With over 18,000 entrants worldwide, ‘More Than Me’ made the final 16 in the Pop/Top 40 category alongside grammy award winner Kimbra. 

Radio plays include BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 6 Music, XFM and Capital FM.

APACHE DARLING were selected to play 2015’s NXNE Festival in Toronto, Canada. Back home, they opened the 20th year of T Break at T In The Park Festival, as well as the annual King Tut’s Summer Nights Festival.

Other highlights include performing at The Lighthouse Late for The List magazine, headlining the QMU, Bloc+ Glasgow, JAMnesty and Hard Rock Café as well as being shortlisted for Capital FM’s One To Watch. APACHE DARLING headlined King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut in Glasgow as part of their annual New Year’s Revolution Festival. The National Scotland and The Sun have included the band in their “ones to watch”.   

The band are touring with Hipsway in 2017 and recording their debut EP, to be released in early 2018.

Lyrics

More Than Me

Written By: Stefanie Lawrence,Andrew Black

More Than Me

Honesty. Lie To Me.
Show me what it’s all about.
All in white, ready to fight.
Everybody found you out. (Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh)

Maybe I’ll make it all okay, okay.
Maybe I’ll lead you, aw-ay, aw-ay. (It’s...)

Chorus
Easier.
I’ll make you love her more than me,
I’ll make you love her more than me. x2

Make believe. Reality.
You don’t know that they are not the same.
Smaller worlds in bigger space.
Bodies always say when they don’t feel.

Maybe I’ll make it all okay, okay.
Maybe I’ll lead you, aw-ay, aw-ay. (It’s…)

Chorus
Easier.
I’ll make you love her more than me,
I’ll make you love her more than me. x2

Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh.
I’ll make you love her more than me.
Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh.
I’ll make you love her more than me.
Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh
I’ll make you love her more than me.

Gotta make you love her more than me…

Chorus
Easier.
I’ll make you love her more than me,
I’ll make you love her more than me. x2

FIREBIRD

Written By: Stefanie Lawrence,Andrew Black

Firebird

Verse 1
Go wild, go wild, go over you.
Dead calm, dead space, dead certain too.
If you could see it in the air.
You don’t know it’s there.

Verse 2
Fear of us, fear of love, fear of loathing you.
Won’t understand the world you choose.
Firebird has fire in his stare,
But you don’t know it’s there.

Pre-Chorus
Hold the search-light, break down first sight,
Make the colour blow.
I’ll be just fine, wait here in line,
All ready to go.

Chorus [A]
We are - everywhere always.
Fall hard - it’s all the same.
We are - everywhere always.
So far…

Chorus [B]
We are we are all in flames,
Racing through the brain.
We are we are death do part,
Trouble from the start.

Verse 3

Eyes up and focus on the dawn
Your day has already begun.
Fire burn, firebird, fire in your stare.
But you don’t know it’s there.

Chorus [A]
We are - everywhere always.
Fall hard - it’s all the same.
We are - everywhere always.
So far…

Chorus [B]
We are we are all in flames,
Racing through the brain.
We are we are death do part,
Trouble from the start.

Chorus [B]
We are we are all in flames,
Racing through the brain.
We are we are death do part,
Trouble from the start.

Fire burn in the dark
Fire burn in the dark - ah-ah-[ah]
Firebird make your mark.
Firebird.

Fire burn in the dark
Fire burn in the dark - ah-ah-[ah]
Firebird make your mark.

Bubblegum

Written By: Andrew Black,Stefanie Lawrence

Caught up, tied tongue.
You don’t stick like Cola flavoured favourite Bubblegum. I push, you pull.
Told myself to never sleep before you come.
I try, to give up.
But how can I when you taste, you taste so good.
I try, to stop.
But it’s Dan-ger-ous.

Chorus
We don’t talk as much about it. But we just might. If we fight fight.
We don’t talk as much about it. But we just might. If we fight fight.
We don’t talk as much about it.

Swallow, no fear.
But how can I when you chew me up, you chew me up. You push, I pull.
If I’m overboard on more time I’ll take it away.
And I disappear.
But you love it when we fight!

Chorus
We don’t talk as much about it. But we just might. If we fight fight.
We don’t talk as much about it. But we just might. If we fight fight.
We don’t talk as much about it.

Middle
Fight or flight, up and down left or right, up and down left or right.
Fight or flight, up and down left or right, up and down left or right. [We don’t talk as much]. x3
