      The Darling Fired 'Dark Celebration' Album Review by Ariana Leo

      Dark Celebration

      Album Review by Ariana Leo, Photojournalist

      Boston Rock Radio

      With an impressive lineup featuring former members of some of the early 2000s’ most prominent emo and alternative acts, supergroup The Darling Fire announce their arrival with an album that combines the best elements of all these musicians’ origin genres. At some moments, the 90’s influences come through strongly on Dark Celebration; other times, fresh features from today’s indie/alternative scene are incorporated. There’s even a little bit of a metalcore-inspired punch to some of these songs (check out “Omaha” and “Saints in Masquerade”). The result is an overall sound that is chilling and unsettling in all the right ways, and ultimately contagious.

      Dark Celebration opens with “For the Loveless,” a track with an undeniable 90’s feel and powerful lyrical themes. These themes carry throughout the rest of the album, inspired by both events in the band’s personal lives and larger issues currently affecting society as a whole. “Nevertwin” and “Omaha” are slow, moody, and contemplative. “Silver Spider” beautifully shows off the voice of frontwoman Jolie Lindholm (of The Rocking Horse Winner fame), with the surrounding instruments dropping in intensity. Short spoken-word bits at the beginnings of several songs add a whole new dimension; they help to set the dark tone and shape the stories the band is telling. 

      Overall, Dark Celebration is the sort of album that makes you think and feel all at once, a powerful combination. It may take a few listens to truly appreciate it, but you’ll soon find yourself getting lost in the incredible soundscape created by these five accomplished musicians.

      Dark Celebration is now available on all streaming platforms via Spartan Records.
