Darren Costin (born 1966) is the drummer for the new wave band Wang Chung. Costin first appeared on the group's debut album, Huang Chung, then on their second album Points on a Curve. When drumming, Costin used Simmons electronic drums. Costin left the band in 1985 after Wang Chung's second U.S. summer tour with The Cars in order to pursue a solo career.


Costin founded the band Heroes, as the lead singer/songwriter. They recorded the album Here We Are under RCA Records in 1987. After playing music professionally, Costin still played an active role in music by engineering, producing and playing on several albums among the likes of U2, Frank Sinatra and Bjork.

In 2009, Costin has been responsible for producing and writing for the band, DAVE. They released their debut album A DAVE in the Life. He has also mastered two Eden project concerts for the Raconteurs and the Kaiser Chiefs for MTV, as well as completing the sound design for Lutz Becker's "The Fururist".

In 2013, Costin reunited with Jack Hues and Nick Feldman for a planned Wang Chung show in London.
