Darkside first formed during a Berlin stop on this tour. Jaar and Harrington started writing in their hotel room together. Upon returning to New York, they continued to write together, developing their sound in their Brooklyn studio.
Darkside's debut album Psychic was released on October 4, 2013. The album was recorded over the course of two years between Jaar's home in New York City, Harrington's family barn in Upstate New York, and a space in Paris where they would stay between tours.
