Darlingside’s new single “Hold Your Head Up High”, co-written with their friend Caitlin Canty “took a total of six years to complete”, says Dave Senft of the band. The single is off their forthcoming album ‘Extralife’ and confronts issues of “adversity and hopelessness through the story of a father and son, told using delicately arranged vocal harmonies over a swelling backdrop of strings”. – American Songwriter (read more here)
“Some of the early drafts were written the day after Robin Williams’ death, and so for me the song will always conjure that particular loss, but in the context of this album and what all of us are thinking about today, I’ve come to think of it as less about loss and more about struggle against inequality and injustice. My hope is that the song is as flexible for our listeners as it has been for me.” – Dave Senft
