Darrian Gerard makes no apologies with her hook-laden pop-punk single, I’m Not Sorry.

Alt-rock solo artist, Darrian Gerard, has released her self-produced single, I’m Not Sorry; the defiant anthem throws you right back to the glory days of scuzzy pop-punk while encompassing an emboldening modern lyricism style.

Away from Paramore and Avril Lavigne reminisces, I’m Not Sorry is a stellar track in its own right, and despite the DIY production, the infectiously hyper choruses reel you in hook, line and sinker. There is enough energy in this earworm to animate a main stage festival crowd. We can’t wait to watch Darrian Gerard climb the alt-rock charts with I’m Not Sorry.

I’m Not Sorry will officially release on September 13th; you can check it out for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud.

Darrian Gerard broke the pop mould with her pop-punk earworm, ‘Festival’.

Darrian Gerard

If memories of music festivals feel like a lifetime ago, Darrian Gerard’s latest pop-punk single, Festival, will bring them flooding right back as if they were yesterday. Darrian Gerard’s vocals carry the same girl next door vibe as the likes of Taylor Swift and all of the outlier attitude of pop-punk princesses such as Avril Lavigne, expectedly, that’s an instantly infectious and accessible mix.

The Canadian singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist also takes influence from Alanis Morissette and Angels and Airwaves, giving her sound a refreshingly dynamic sound that breaks the perfect pop mould with the effect-laden, punchy indie guitars and wholesomely rebellious attitude.

Festival released on June 4th; you can check it out for yourselves via SoundCloud.
