Part I of our album documentary 'Out Of The Cellar, Into The Light' is now available on our YouTube channel!
This has been an incredible year for us. It's been full of challenges and rewards, and the result is an album we couldn't be prouder of. We've documented this process as best we could and are happy to share it with you here - we hope you enjoy this in-depth look 'behind the scenes'!
Part I, "This Is Who We Are", deals with who Cellar Darling is and where we came from. Stay tuned and subscribe to our channel so you don't miss the next episode!
We’re proud and happy to present to you the first single and video from our upcoming album ‘This Is The Sound’: Black Moon!
Black Moon' is one of the first songs we wrote after our debut single last year, and probably the point where we definitely "found" our sound. Ivo randomly called his original demo 'Moon' and that triggered the idea of a story based on the fear of a black moon... So, as a lyrical theme, we ended up exploring mankind's tendency to add an apocalyptic interpretation to the lunar eclipse.
We'd like to thank everyone involved for their hard work in the scorching hot 'lunar landscape' of Tenerife: he talented Fabienne Fellmann and her fellow actors as well as AVA Studios and their awesome team!
We’ve also launched the pre-order for the album and you can get the single now on any digital platform of your choice!

It's time to unveil the artwork of our upcoming debut album, 'This Is The Sound'! The mesmerising cover art was created by Christopher Ruef (SAROS Collective, graphic design) & Manuel Vargas Lépiz (Manvarle, photography). The figure of the cover lures you into our world of stories and eclectic music; it’s a preview of the remaining artwork, where each song has its own visual representation and symbol:
While we're at it, check out the full tracklist of the album - 14 original songs amounting to a full hour of music. As if that’s not enough, the mediabook edition will feature 3 bonus tracks! Each of us three chose a cover song to interpret in our own style: 'The Cold Song’ from Henry Purcell’s “King Arthur” opera, chosen by Anna, Tears for Fears’ 'Mad World’, chosen by Ivo and the epic Queen classic 'The Prophet’s Song’ - One of Merlin's all-time favourites. Also included in the mediabook will be an alternative and limited cover artwork plus an extended 32-page booklet, filled with the our notes on the stories behind our songs.
