Lily Mao and the Resonaters, Darlin! the Band


Lily Mao and the Resonaters

With Lyrics that make you think, a soft— but sturdy voice that speaks directly to you, and a wall of sound. It’s rock, it’s singer-songwriter, it’s excellent! Busking in the streets of New York by day and playing out in the city’s vast DIY scene by night, garage rocker Lily Mao has hammered out a niche in Brooklyn’s indie-rock community with her gritty recordings and vibrant stage personality. The Scranton Pennsylvania native moved to Brooklyn in 2018, where she formed Lily Mao and the Resonaters with renowned producer Nate Jasensky and best-friend Gabby Borges. For their Mercury Lounge debut, Lily Mao and The Resonaters are excited to be featuring a brand new set-list AND band member, Tui Jordan, alongside Nate Jasensky and Gabby Borges. You won’t want to miss this one



Darlin! the Band

Darlin! the Band is a synth/electro-pop Brooklyn outfit formed in 2019. For years, lead singer Johnny Darlin was a staple in New York’s open mic and queer underground theatre scene. He played his original songs on a bejeweled keytar at Fringe Festivals and in blackbox theatres, working up a theatrical sweat in his wedding dress. Meanwhile, Ben (guitars), Can (drums), and Wes (synth/bass) were cutting their teeth in iconic New York City venues with other bands, including Mind Over Time and The Avalon Hi-Fi. Together now, they create a fusion of the two worlds – introspective songwriting about trying to find love whilst struggling to find yourself – mixed with the intricate musicality of twinkling synths, driven by a pulsing groove and rhythm. They cannot wait to make their Mercury Lounge debut!
