CELLAR DARLING, the much-hyped new band formed by ex-ELUVEITIE members Anna Murphy, Merlin Sutter and Ivo Henzi, released the first trailer for their upcoming debut album This Is The Sound, out on June 30th. This creatively designed clip, entitled ‘This Is Who We Are‘, is a preview for part I of the band’s full album documentary, now available in the full version on www.youtube.com/cellardarling. In this first episode, you’ll be introduced to the origins of CELLAR DARLING, the new passion of the three young musicians and their spirits of the past and future.
“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 now – 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 at youtube.com/cellardarling so you don’t miss the next episode!”

This Is The Sound is now available in the form of a CD or double vinyl. For a little extra, a limited digibook is also available. It features 3 bonus tracks! Each band member chose a cover song to interpret in CELLAR DARLING’s own, unique style. Anna picked ‘The Cold Song’ from Henry Purcell’s “King Arthur” opera, Tears for Fears’ ‘Mad World’, was chosen by Ivo and to top it all off – the epic Queen classic ‘The Prophet’s Song’ – Merlin’s all time favourite. Also included in the digibook will be an alternative and limited cover artwork plus an extended 32-page booklet, filled with the band’s notes on the stories behind their songs.

After their split with ELUVEITIE, Anna Murphy, Ivo Henzi and Merlin Sutter quickly realised their musical journey was far from over. What quickly developed was a unique and fresh combination of grand and heavy riffs, powerful drumming and a unique voice along with the signature folky, earthy tones of the hurdy gurdy. This, combined with classical elements as well as inherited folk influences, led to the creation of something entirely new, setting Cellar Darling on the path of musical innovation.
CELLAR DARLING released their first single, ‘Challenge‘, and a bonus song called ‘Fire, Wind & Earth‘ in September 2016. Watch the lyric videos here:
