World Cafe: Next - You Will Be Mightily Impressed By Darlingside’s Harmonies

A new band from New England for our World Cafe: Next this week. They are a four member folk band called Darlingside. They evolved from a larger more indie rock band formed when they were all in school at Williams. When the drummer left they started exploring what has made this band unique especially their forceful harmonies. Their debut Birds Say is a great start and we will hear a couple of songs.
