Darling originally formed in 2003 around the songwriting of Jeff Schneider, and released their debut ep, Ground is Sound on Cardboard Sangria shortly after. A newly adapted trio version of the band featuring the lilting melancholia of Jeff Schneider once again, but improves its sonic attack with the addition of Nick Voss and Pierce Codina. The new trio adds a wider range of sounds and a more tightly focused rhythm section to add to their impressive live shows. Darling is a sweet and hopeful mix of Built to Spill and Modest Mouse inspired indie guitars, with a bit of the sixties pop group vocals sneakin’ in.
