Class Of 2010: Allo Darlin'

There's a certain strain of music that people like us, that is to say pasty faced Myspace/crate-digging four square guitar rock fans who haven't been properly in touch with what pop actually means for a decade or more, call pop. Allo Darlin' is primarily a vehicle for ukelele touting Aussie Elizabeth Morris, an Indietracks regular and member of Amelia Fletcher's current band the Tender Trap. Which all means lots of (gnnh) twee charm, yes, but also an advanced sense of catchiness and bounciness as well as, yes, chirpy likeability. Underneath that Morris weaves stories of love and joy, not necessarily at the same time - the below song is inspired by the phasing out of non-digital film, while previous single Henry Rollins Don't Dance is about a couple trying to reconcile their varying musical tastes. There's an album expected in February, supported by touring with The School in March.
