Those Darlins deliver a new song just in time to celebrate the end of summer fun. The backyard barbecues, swimming holes, and bikini lined lovers are gone and they're not coming back.
Carrying on the grand tradition and spirit of the recently passed Charlie Louvin, "Summer's Dead" is Those Darlins' offering to the pantheon of the American murder ballad. Fitting for your upcoming Halloween festivities and inspired by a gruesome murder and Francis Bacon's provocative paintings, "Summer's Dead" is a rock n roll ride through an unruly banquet of deadly seduction.
Forget about summer's past and follow Those Darlins straight through to Halloween.
“Those Darlins come off like the toughest, most dangerous group around. They deliver thrilling song after thrilling song that’ll have you hyping them to all your rock & roll friends as soon the album stops spinning.” - ALL MUSIC GUIDE
“Hooky, saucy, punky songwriting in a mood somewhere between Be Your Own Pet and the Donnas, only savvier. Those Darlins have mouths on them, yes they do. But their mouths are connected to their hearts and minds, and amped by loud guitars” - ROBERT CHRISTGAU A-, NPR’s ALL THING CONSIDERED
“an instant garage/power-pop classic that would make everyone from Iggy Pop to King Tuff proud.” - PASTE: 8.5 out of 10
