Darlingside - New Single out now.

So this came across my desk today, and I've just dug in to it a bunch of times.

New England's string-rock quartet Darlingside have released their latest 7" today, titled The Edge of the Earth. In accordance with this release, the band has put out a brand new single, "Sweet and Low," along with a live video of the track performed acoustically.

Don from Darlingside explains, "'Sweet and Low' was the last track recorded during the Pilot Machines sessions, and it features the album's only guest performance (Caitlin Canty, vocals). The song's lyrics were inspired by a song-writing date at the local coffee shop, where artificial sweeteners were rather abundant. The percussive loop that begins the song is the only remaining component from the original pinhole-mic demo recording."

The Edge of the Earth marks the third and final 7" of the band's ambitious release schedule, all building up toward their full-length album Pilot Machines, due out July 17th, 2012. Darlingside is currently on tour throughout the East Coast.
