Darlingside Gets Fed Up With the 9-5, Praises Han Solo in New Single

We’ve all dealt with early morning struggles, occasional alarm clock abuse, dickhead bosses, and, well, basically this, but rarely do we come across a song that can so accurately and concisely sum it all up quite like Darlingside’s “Harrison Ford,” all the while paying homage to a blade-running, treasure-hunting, saber-wielding actual superhuman.
