"Darkside are an American rock band formed in Providence, Rhode Island in 2011. The group consists of Chilean electronic musician and vocalist Nicolás Jaar and American multi-instrumentalist Dave Harrington. Jaar and Harrington first met while studying in Providence through their common friend and saxophonist Will Epstein. In the summer of 2011 they toured Europe and Australia in support of Jaar’s breakthrough debut album ‘Space Is Only Noise’. Upon returning to Providence, they continued to write together, releasing their self-titled EP in 2012 and their critically acclaimed debut album ‘Psychic’ on Matador Records in October 2013. The album was met with glowing reviews, including a 9.0 from Pitchfork and The New York Times calling it “the soundtrack to a lost David Lynch sci-fi movie.” In the summer of 2018, Harrington and Jaar rented a small house on Lenni-Lenape territory, which is present-day Flemington, New Jersey. The group spent a week there, making a song a day. While it would take another year and a half to complete their second album, six songs from the band’s new record, ‘Spiral’, were written and recorded during this initial session."
