Darlingside Reach Their Darkening Hour

Acclaimed indie-folk quartet Darlingside have released exquisitely wistful new song Darkening Hour from their upcoming album Everything Is Alive which drops on 28th July via Thirty Tigers. Darkening Hour encapsulates the essence of Everything Is Alive, one of greater despair and frustration which must be confronted before redemption can eventually occur.



The new L.P. finds the Boston, MA-based four-piece taking risks, a departure for a band known for ubiquitous vocal harmonies and a uniquely democratic songwriting process. While lush arrangements and melodic word-building still flourish throughout the album, Darlingside is embracing the individual strengths of band members Don Mitchell, Auyon Mukharji, Harris Paseltiner and David Senft. The results are compelling, offering listeners an extra dimension of the band’s trademark lusciousness.

Listen to Darkening Hour below:

Darlingside are gearing up for a massive 32-date U.S. tour to support Everything Is Alive, kicking off on 29th August in Nashville, TN. The tour lineup also marks a change for the group, as Senft relinquishes his road duties and the album’s drummer Ben Burns and singer Molly Parden join the live run. Check out their tour dates here.

Everything Is Alive was produced and recorded by the band and mixed by Tucker Martine (My Morning Jacket, Sufjan Stevens, Iron and Wine) in 2021. Darlingside’s first release was 2015’s Birds Say, which announced the band’s arrival as an eclectic, intelligent and dynamic foursome. Media across the board praised the release, including American Songwriter, Paste, Rolling Stone Country, NPR Music, The New Yorker and The Huffington Post, who called it, “…one of the great albums released this year.” Extralife followed, building the band’s fanbase and continuing to earn raves. Fish Pond Fish was released in 2020 to additional critical praise and the band shared the album with a beautifully produced series of livestreams while touring ceased during the pandemic.
