Darlingside

Jul 19, 2017 @ 7:00 pm  —  Jul 19, 2017 @ 10:00pm

Voted most wanted to return after dazzling our audiences last summer, Darlingside 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.

These four vocalists and multi-instrumentalists construct every song 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 band’s wide-open arrangements are marked by the skillful vocal interplay of the four singers, and a penchant for smashing electronic sounds, with traditional acoustic textures – often bowed or plucked strings on a bed of ambient guitar swells and self-oscillating delays – shines through their latest release, Birds Say. Their 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.
