A veritable mosaic of indie notoriety, The Darling Fire features ex-members of The Rocking Horse Winner, Further Seems Forever, Dashboard Confessional, Poison The Well and Shai Hulud among others. The debut album, Dark Celebration, is in many ways what you'd anticipate; energetic, powerful, melodic, and heavy. However, it is far more nuanced than you would imagine. The collective sum of the parts and the alluring heart-on-sleeve lyrics produce a more intimate, spacey and bewitching experience; an authenticity that speaks to the true cathartic nature of the project. The result of their collaboration with producer J. Robbins [Jawbox, Burning Airlines] is a powerful coalescence of artistry and vision.
