Darlingside is described by NPR as “exquisitely-arranged, literary-minded, baroque folk-pop,” and their dynamic presence (crowded tightly together onstage) has made them a live-performance favorite.


The band has long been praised for their harmonies and intelligent songwriting, which The New Yorker compared to David Crosby and The Byrds. Their dynamic presence (crowded tightly together onstage for the audience to witness their voices turn into a singular texture of sound), paired with their sharp wit and wordplay, have made their songs treasures for literary and lyric-loving fans.

If Darlingside’s first album, Birds Say (2015), focused on nostalgia, and their second, Extralife (2018), contemplated uncertain futures, then Fish Pond Fish (2020) stands firmly in the present and showcases their broader storytelling abilities. This latest album is a celebration of life, in all its impulses and foliage and circling birds.

Quote symbolReleasing an album during a pandemic is hard, but their offering is a celebration of life, in all its impulses and foliage and circling birds. . . They’ve given us a look at the weird and bursting offerings our planet has drummed up over the past three billion years—from tides to starlings to gravity.”
