“A powerhouse of vocal, instrumental, and performing talent,” Darlingside's expansive sound is “astonishingly more congruent than the sum of its parts.” The group has no frontman; instead, lead vocals are traded from moment to moment, and each song features a new combination of instruments and textures, pulling heavily from folk, retro-pop, barbershop, and chamber music. Nominated for "Indie/Pop" Act of the Year by the New England Music awards, and winners of Sennheisers' HereIam Competition, they have been gathering esteemed praise everywhere they go.
Opening for Darlingside is Greetings From Anywhere. Formed high up on a hill in Dobbs Ferry, NY in 2007, Greetings From Anywhere mashes folk, blues, bluegrass and country into a unique roots-rock hybrid, performing with the gritty, impromptu abandon of a good-old-time garage band. Veterans of the NYC and Hudson Valley club, pub and festival circuit, GFA features a wide array of original compositions alongside choice reinterpreted feel-good covers.
"Darlingside, a Massachusetts quartet with a rich line in acoustic textures and chamber-rock dynamics [...] I played it again the other day – then again and again. Its melancholy pull – suggesting the Byrds' choral flow [...] – is now in daily rotation." -David Frick, Rolling Stone
