Allo Darlin’ – “Romance And Adventure”

By Chris DeVille / August 12, 2014

English/Australian indie-poppers Allo Darlin’ have a new album called We Come From the Same Place coming this October, and lead single “Romance And Adventure” is a stunner. A brisk drumbeat carries jangly guitars downhill with increasing urgency while Elizabeth Morris builds her breakup narrative to a weary climax: “I’m just tired of being strong.” Rarely has this genre been explored with such an effortless grasp of drama and dynamics. You really ought to listen, darlin’.

We Come From the Same Place is out 10/7 on Slumberland.
