“Following on from debut single ‘Bats’, The Darlingtons continue to blend influences from bands such as Interpol, The National and Echo & The Bunnymen with inspiration from their small town surroundings to create their epic brand of indie rock. The Darlingtons’ tireless work ethic has recently seen them gigging around the country (including a headline show at Electricity Showrooms), and the release of ‘Bats’ secured reviews from The Independent and Music Week, and radio plays from 6 Music. Now they return with a second single ‘Everything’, a further slice of dark, ambitious indie. Both singles are taken from The Darlingtons’ upcoming debut album, Decades Dance”.
Accentuated guitar effects and pinpoint melodies, The Darlingtons` slow rise from a small town Indie band to a multi-managed touring outfit may be one or two years ahead, it will be criminal if this superb new album release fails to turn a few important heads, my faith in the UK`s dwindling egoistic music industry will again be beaten senseless. The Somerset based four-piece base their sound around precise layered guitars and quick double-tap percussion, the fresh and ultra tidy vocals emit a fascinating almost businesslike rush of sound within a superbly ebullient performance – Such a sophisticated record for a debut long player.
The Darlingtons, Moody Euphoric Guitar Music.
