There is scarcely a band we love more here at AUK Towers than indie-folk quartet Darlingside who last month released their new album ‘Everything Is Alive’ to a range of critical support including The Times, Independent and ourselves of course, and they have just announced three live dates in January 2024 to support the release in Manchester, Bristol and London. Tickets go on sale at 10am tomorrow (Friday 18th August) from this link.
‘Everything Is Alive’ was produced and recorded by the band and mixed by Tucker Martine (My Morning Jacket, Sufjan Stevens, Iron and Wine) in 2021. Darlingside’s first release was 2015’s ‘Birds Say’, which announced the band’s arrival as an eclectic, intelligent and dynamic foursome. Media across the board praised the release, including American Songwriter, Paste, Rolling Stone Country, NPR Music, The New Yorker and The Huffington Post, who called it, “…one of the great albums released this year.” ‘Extralife’ followed, building the band’s fanbase and continuing to earn raves. ‘Fish Pond Fish’ was released in 2020 to, you guessed it, additional critical praise and the band shared the album with a beautifully produced series of livestreams while touring ceased during the pandemic.
