Allo Darlin' - Kings And Queens

The WIAIWYA 7777777 singles club comes to a big climax on 7th December with three new tracks from our Antipodean expat rulers of uke-pop, apparently responsible for Rough Trade's biggest selling album of the year. The advance track is lyrically along the same lines as Europe, Elizabeth comparing as parallels the elation of new love and the joy of being on stage. Maybe the big showy guitar solo through a fuzz pedal is a new direction but for the time being they're within their world of tentative susnhine optimism and that's a good thing.

Thanks, they sang Kings and Queens last night in Paris and I was wondering why I didn't know it and where to find it.
and _of course_ i found the information here :)
Can't wait to hear the rest of the single, and very glad to learn about the RT biggest selling thing, both Allo Darlin' albums are really great.
