Local Band We Love: Darker My Love

Darker my loveFrom DJ Anne Litt:

“Maybe it’s just me, but the lazy part of the summer has me in a firm grasp.  I’ve been on vacation, slowed down, relaxed…  There’s a certain psychedelic haze drifting over me.

That’s where Darker My Love’s new album, “Alive As You Are,” fits in.

It’s not an accident that it was recorded in San Francisco and I can only imagine that the band has listened to its share of Crosby, Stills, and Nash and Grateful Dead.  To leave it there would be too easy though.  The album is deep on emotion and long on heartache.  Somehow, though, that West Coast optimism seeps into the music making it a perfect tonic for my heart.

Stream the track “Backseat” and keep an eye out as we will be offering it as a free download as Today’s Top Tune on August 3!

Editor’s Note: I should mention that Darker My Love will be touring with Band of Horses this Fall– a killer bill. And you can see them together on September 25 at The Greek Theater. Darker My Love has a headlining show at the Bootleg Theater on August 17.
