Live Video: Allo Darlin’

While their name sounds like the kind of exclamation you hear on the streets of London, the darlings of Allo Darlin’ hail from Brisbane, Australia, and the London suburb of Kent. Earlier this year, when they played Three Imaginary Girls’ tenth anniversary show at The Vera Project, they stopped in to KEXP to regale Kevin Cole with stories of their most recent trip to the US. “I loved going through the South,” lead singer Elizabeth Morris said. “We went to the Buddy Holly Museum. It has a giant pair of glasses out the front of it.” (Weezer once wrote a song called “Buddy Holly.” Allo Darlin’ once wrote a song called “Kiss Your Lips” that alludes to “El Scorcho” by Weezer. Everything is connected?) In this intimate in-studio performance, Morris and Co. treated listeners to four songs from the band’s 2012 LP, Europe, which was included on several year-end Best Of lists. The band confirmed on Facebook last week that they will be heading into the studio this year to record a follow-up, so look out for that in the near future.
