Fish Pond Fish was released in October 2020 and earned raves for the lush harmonies, gorgeous arrangements and thoughtful lyrics. Accolades include:
“The album is filled with thoughtful analogies and exquisite phrasing that reflect a world at work around us and the resulting lessons we can learn. Beauty is ever-present if we’re willing to notice, and Darlingside’s latest beckons us to lean in and listen.” – No Depression
“Darlingside swims into lush, exquisite and literary folk on ‘Fish Pond Fish’”
– American Songwriter
“This music is rich and dense, ethereally harmonious, and far from simple. Many of these tunes, with their acoustic strumming, plucked banjos, and some effects, seem as if they are being directly transmitted from the heavens above – certainly the sequence that runs from ‘Time Will Be’ to ‘February Stars’ to ‘Denver’ to ‘Mountain + Sea.’” – Glide
“Darlingside’s dazzling album ‘Fish Pond Fish’ is a connective triumph”
Darlingside has long been praised for their harmonies and intelligent songwriting, described by NPR as “exquisitely-arranged, literary-minded, baroque folk-pop,” and which The New Yorker compared to David Crosby and The Byrds. Paired with their sharp wit and wordplay, Darlingside has become a live-performance favorite, and their songs are treasures for literary and lyric-loving fans. Fish Pond Fish expands on the band’s broad storytelling prowess, adding more layers and strokes onto an already dense palette.
