“Darlingside suggests a band in the vein of indie-rockers Death Cab for Cutie or Punch Brothers. Yet its contemplative pop also echoes members’ experiences in choral singing, jazz and classical music[…]” more »

Thanks to Sam Pfeifle for the kind write-up!
[S]imultaneously innovative and backward-looking[…] [Darlingside] have made a record that ought to fit right in with Portland’s indie-roots inclinations.
