Darker Circles is a 2010 album by Canadian alt-country group The Sadies. It was released on April 27, 2010, on Yep Roc Records.

The album was a shortlisted nominee for the 2010 Polaris Music Prize.[4]

"Darker Circles" won the top prize in Exclaim! Magazine's 2010 Folk & Country Year in Review. The album was praised for its richly detailed storytelling, "staying on top of the Sadies' progress over the past decade has been a wild ride. Aside from an endless string of collaborations, each album has edged closer to psychedelic country-rock perfection. The biggest obstacle has always been raising their songwriting game to the same level as their instrumental prowess, and that has finally been accomplished on Darker Circles."[5]
