It’s been a few months now since I first heard the debut album from The Darlingtons. The album didn’t stick with me then, and to be honest, it’s still not sticking with me now. But tracks like the new single “Everything” could be just the way to get the album to appeal to me. It’s an epic, post-rock track that takes on some of the best moments of Interpol and The National and leaves us all with a chorus in our heads. The corresponding video references those often cheeky Christmas specials we’ve all watched in the past. There’s some drama, fighting, and overwrought acting…and of course a brilliant tune.
The single is out from 11 June on Ordered Records, to be followed by the debut album Decades Dance later this year.
