New Allo Darlin Single, US Tour Dates

So, since starting this blog back in 2009, Allo Darlin has been a constant favorite of mine — they had one of my favorite songs in 2009 with “Henry Rollins Don’t Dance,” one of my favorite albums in 2010 with their self-titled debut, and one of my favorite singles in 2011 with their Darren picture disc. They’re gearing up to release a new album this spring (distributed by Slumberland Records in the US and Fortuna Pop in the UK) and the album’s first single,“Capricornia” has just been made available for streaming!

You can stream the song above, but if you click through to the Soundcloud page you can read some beautiful thoughts from Elizabeth Morris regarding the inspiration for the song and the sound she wanted to capture on Europe (the forthcoming sophomore album from Allo Darlin.) Elizabeth mentions Kirsty MacColl’s cover of “A New England” as one of the sounds she wanted to capture on this album and you can definitely hear echoes of Kirsty — sweet, yet wise & perhaps a little too knowing for her own good/happiness — in this. I can’t wait for the full length & am beyond excited for Allo Darlin’s US tour, which will finally bring them to Cleveland. You can catch them at the Beachland Tavern on Wednesday, May 15th. You can get tickets directly from the Beachland (online or in person) or from Music Saves. A full list of tour dates is below, all dates are with Wave Pictures.

If you’re behind the game on Allo Darlin, check out their website & their bandcamp page, where you can stream all of their releases.

  1. Wow. That song is so “New England.” The self-titled was my favorite album in 2010 — I could not be more excited for this new one.
