Darlingside is a string-rock quintet based in Northampton, MA. The band formed at Williams College, where they shared the stage with such acts as Guster, The Format and The Ken Oak Band. Darlingside’s sound is characterized by elegantly crafted cello-violin duets, soaring harmonies, catchy hooks and compelling beats. Musical influences range from Radiohead to Nickel Creek, Beethoven to Phoenix. Their first few months have been spent holed up writing new tunes in their crowded house (reminiscent of the Grateful Dead’s 710 Ashbury, except with less substance-abuse and more granola). These five multi-instrumentalists are amped to tour Massachusetts, the greater Northeast, and eventually Japan. Konichiwa, and we’ll see you out there.
