Good morning folks! Adam here and today I’m sharing some literate chamber pop from Darlingside. “The Best of the Best of Times” is the lead single from their brand new album Extralife available everywhere now via Thirty Tigers. Give it a listen below and let us know what you think! Don’t miss Darlingside at The Basement Nashville April 16! Buy your tickets here.
Darlingside (Don Mitchell, Auyon Mukharji, Harris Paseltiner, and David Senft) are a Massachusetts-based ensemble whose sound is an eclectic blend of 60s folk, clever wry wit, classical arrangements, soaring harmonies, and a modern indie-rock sensibility. The four vocalists and multi-instrumentalists construct every piece collaboratively, pooling ideas so that each song bears the imprint of four different writing voices. Playful vocal permutations swing from four-part unison to CSNY-inspired group harmonies, underpinned by rich, carefully crafted soundscapes. The final product threads the collective memory of the four songwriters, nodding to the music of their parents’ generation while establishing a sound that is all their own.
