Darlingside – Extralife. Thirty Tigers – 23 February 2018. Massachusetts in the winter is the perfect place to lock yourself in a living room next to a roaring fire, and Extralife, the new album by folk quartet Darlingside, is the perfect album to take with you. It’s crackling and warm like a hearth, soft and faint like the crooning of a breeze. In Extralife you may recognize the characteristic roots of the modern folk sound. Inklings of Bon Iver, Lord Huron, and The Lumineers permeate this indie folk album. Extralife doles out low and rich vocal harmonies, humble acoustic guitar, and reverb-a-plenty.
Darlingside is a four-person indie folk band from Boston, MA. The band consists of Don Mitchell, Auyon Mukharji, Harris Paseltiner, and David Senft.

Boston quartet Darlingside manage exactly that on their new album, Extralife, a sumptuous set of harmony-heavy songs that, like an impressionist painting, conjures the feeling and texture of end times while leaving plenty of space for the listener to decide just what such an event would actually look like. The album opens with the title track, a two-and-a-half minute overture of sorts. Darlingside showcase some of the most gorgeous vocal harmonies you'll hear all year, singing "It's over now, The flag has sunk, The world has flattened ou. It's an eerie listen; one can't help but imagine the song playing quietly during the devastating silence that must follow a nuclear blast.
