God Of Loss - Darlingside
Our next great LCM featured band Darlingside are from Cambridge, Massachusetts. With one of my favourite songs from their new album 'Birds Say' our LCM #TrackOfTheDay is a stunning live acoustic version of 'The God of Loss' from a recent Whisperingbobtv session. https://youtu.be/5X-oGJZel8w
If you would like to see the guys live they are headlining at the beautiful Union Chapel on 3rd July.
"Darlingside are doing something new in pop music, which is kind of astonishing this late in the game (ground the Beach Boys, Beatles, Joni Mitchell, Pink Floyd, David Bowie, Talking Heads, Prince, Phish, and Radiohead didn't cover is hard to find.)" – The Boston Herald
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.
