Everything Is Alive is the follow up to the band’s praised 2020 release Fish Pond Fish and finds Darlingside taking risks. Known for ubiquitous vocal harmonies and a uniquely democratic songwriting process, on Everything Is Alive the group embraces the individual strengths of band members Don Mitchell, Auyon Mukharji, Harris Paseltiner and David Senft. The results are compelling, offering listeners extra elements of the band’s trademark lusciousness.
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 additional critical praise and the band shared the album with a beautifully produced series of livestreams while touring ceased during the pandemic.
