I am on way to Boston. I can’t wait to see and experience all that I missed, just because I have only passed through Boston on my way to somewhere else. I know that I am a “different” visitor because everyone else that I am traveling with looks up restaurants, shows, and beautiful parks and historic landmarks. Yep, you guessed it, I am searching for the best local bands. It is an illness where there is no cure.
This is a song and a band that I was thrilled to stumble upon. I will definitely put Darlingside on my playlist. They pride themselves on their original music played by actual instruments. No electronic or synth here. Darlingside is out of Cambridge and loaded with a compilation of deeply, magnificent songs. I really love this one song I am featuring, “Still”. It speaks to me. It reminds me of those people that I love, still. I think about college especially. I embrace my years in college and the friends where I experienced the start of maturity or crazy immaturity with. College, and just after, is such an amazing time of living, compressed in such a short period of time. Those are the people who truly know me and what I am deep down inside. I love them all, still. I wonder if they feel the same.
Listen for yourself and just see if it doesn’t bring up a thought or an emotion that stays with you, but you thought you forgot. This song has wonderful vocals, thoughtful lyrics, and a melody that sticks in your heart. Darlingside won’t be doing a show while I am in Boston, but I am happy to have searched and found a band and a sound that pleases me. Thank you, Boston.
