Charming, yet slightly unhinged, the Mad Young Darlings will win your heart even as they rip it in two, with music so seductive yet ominous it'll leave you clutching your chest even as you desperately try to sing along.

Biography

The music of the Mad Young Darlings is loud, dark, and emotionally driven, borrowing from their many influences but still very much their own

They are lead by the striking and ravenous siren Natasha, who finds herself either screaming or softly chanting her obsessions over the heavy-hearted alt rock of her equally charming and frightfully energetic band mates. The guitars of Brad Donahue and Chad Thompson range from overwhelming and savage to ethereal and lush. Add the driving power and intense heartbeat-style rhythms of drummer Antony Brouwer, and the Darlings manage to call upon a variety of musical styles, with influences ranging from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs to Failure.

Dressing with gothic-tinged romantic flare, and with a live show best described as convulsive, the Darlings are already receiving local acclaim. Releasing their first demo in late 2006 and playing with such notable acts as The Subways, Danko Jones and Inward Eye, the Mad Young Darlings are well on their way to becoming one of the dominant forces on the Canadian music scene.

Lyrics

Tragic As They Come

Written By: MadYoungDarlings

Look at me with a slight stare:
“Do you act miss?”
“Yes darling dearest, yes I act. I’m an actress.”
Every scream sultry murmur you induce is in fact a practice
For my test
Acting as an actress

It’s just the tragic parts that I love
My love

Dead sex
Killed itself as it
Undressed
Little actress
Every scream sultry murmur you induce is in fact a practice
For my test
Acting as an actress

Pucker up baby and prepare for a temptress
She loves the lovers when she loves them she acts it
Self esteem, self absorbed, self induced and ignored
Loving every minute of the sickness she adores

Its just a tragic part of my behavior
Your failure
Is my misbehavior

I’m sick
of being a healthy lover
So sick
I justify my other
Mischief
As being a flaw in my bones
Cutting in
Cause I get off on pain alone

(Not yours but mine)
Look at me with a slight stare
(not yours but mine)
“Do you act miss?”
“Yes darling dearest, yes I act, I’m an actress”
(not yours but mine)
every scream sultry murmur you induce is in fact a practice
For my test
acting as an actress
(not yours but mine)
Look at me with a slight stare
“Do you act miss?”
“Yes darling dearest, yes I act, I’m an actress”
(not yours but mine)
Every scream sultry murmur you induce is in fact a practice
For my test
Acting as an actress

Serotonin

Written By: Mad Young Darlings

Streaked black misery
Spills jets down her cheeks
Hold your sympathy
I have my decency
No mood/ wound brings me movement
Im absent to all intrusion
Read my face and see
Smiling tragedies

Tell me its wonderful
Ill let it numb my skull
Tell me its wonderful

Serotonin makes me shake
Cause im happy
Serotonin makes me shake
Im so happy
Serotonin make me shake
Cause im happy
Serotonin make me shake
Im so happy

Dead stars shine like zombies
In the sky I count their bodies
I see starving bones connected
forming peeks that puncture heaven

Chilling little vacant merchant
Give me something help me cure this
Ive no punctured sky to hide in
Left where I can shine/ and ive lost my only mind

Tell me its wonderful
Ill let it numb my skull
Tell me its wonderful

Serotonin makes me shake
Cause im happy
Serotonin makes me shake
Im so happy
Serotonin make me shake
Cause im happy
Serotonin make me shake
Im so happy
Im still sick on it
Serotonin makes me shake
Im still sick on it
Serotonin makes me shake
Serotonin makes me shake
Serotonin makes me shake

First I took one and had some fun
Then I took two to control my mood
I took three quite hungrily
I took four then I needed more
I took five which lead to ten
And now ill never be sad again
Whoo!
La la la la la la la la la
I could climb a mountain
Llalallalallaalallalala
Swim across the oceans
La la l al al alla lal
Conquer every country
La la la lalal la la
Steal a bunch of money
Cant catch me nanannanann
Cant catch me nananananan
Cant catch me nananananna
Cant catch me

Tell me its wonderful
Ill let it numb my skull
Tell me its wonderful

Serotonin makes me shake
Cause im happy
Serotonin makes me shake
Im so happy
Serotonin makes me shake
Im happy
Serotonin makes me shake
Suckin on Serotonin (la la la la la) x 4

Swarm

Written By: Mad Young Darlings

Wish that
Never did she
Never did she know
To shatter them
Shatter them shatter them
Left in their silent swarm, remind them

Tastes so real
Never did she know
Never did she
Never did she seize
Them by the throat her temper told her
To shut your eyes and shatter them
Shatter them

Get back to the basement
To toy with your flame whip
Let them all die let them all die
Swear to god I
Let them all die
Get back to the basement
To toy with your flame whip
let them all die, let them all die
Swear to god I
Let them all die

Wish that
Never did she
Never did she know
To shatter them, shatter them
Left in their silent swarm, remind them that it just
Tastes so real
Never did she know
Never did she
Never did she seize
Them by the throat her temper told her
Just shut your eyes and shatter them shatter them

Crucified feast your eyes
Let them all die
Let them all die
Swear to god I
Swear to god I
Crucified
You like religious ammunition
Let them all die
Let them all die
Swear to god I
Swear to god i

Our skin keeps all our secrets tight
Like this ones tight underneath mine
On a night like this
You’re a window
Flesh on your face
Scared white like a statue
Bleed your fears
Shattered dear
There wont be much left of you here
Let them all die
Let it all die
Swear to god

don’t let them tell you
They loved you more than anything
don’t let them tell you
They loved you more than anything
Their fingers cross behind the little darlings
So let them all die
Let them all die
Swear to god I
Swear to god

Get back to your basement
And toy with your flame whip
Let them all die
Let them all die
Swear to god I
Let them all die
Get back to your basement
And toy with your flame whip
Let them all die
Let them all die
Swear to god I
Let them all die

don’t let them tell you they loved you more than anything
don’t let them tell you they loved you more than anything
