The 10 songs on Allo Darlin's self-titled debut album don't rewrite the formula for wistful bedsit charm as much as show that it can still be carried out masterfully.

This debut is a joy from beginning to end, a fully-formed talent at the first attempt – as rare as it is welcome.

Put simply, this is the best summer record you’ll hear all year, and potentially the best you’ll hear all decade.

Don't embark on your summer affair without this under your belt.

When we talk about records fit for summer, we mean one that evokes lazy, crazy days of warm sun by means of unhurried ease and glorious melody. Allo Darlin’ certainly do all that. Get it home, though, and there’s just as much to admire in the smart lyrical touch that belies any sort of scene connotations, a fine romance borne from catching hold of the little things.


released June 14, 2010

This album was recorded in the summer of 2009 at Soup in Brick Lane, underneath the Duke of Uke shop. All of the songs were recorded as live tracks with bass, guitar, drums and ukulele. Everything else was added later on, except What Will Be Will Be, which was recorded completely live, vocals and all.

Elizabeth Morris - lead vocals, ukulele, glockenspiel, piano, handclapps, percussion.
Paul Rains - electric guitars, lap steel, fender rhodes, omnichord, korg, backing vocals.

Michael Collins: drums, percussion, backing vocals.

Simon Trought - mandolin, handclaps, percussion, backing vocals.

The Friday Night Choir on Kiss Your Lips was Elizabeth Morris, Paul Rains, Bill Botting, Michael Collins, Simon Trought, Matthew Reynolds, Nik Vestberg, Marie, Other Paul and Other Matthew.

All songs written by Allo Darlin'.

We have lovingly borrowed lines from El Scorcho, written by Rivers Cuomo and I Walk the Line, written by Johnny Cash. The line in Silver Dollars rhyming gin and tonic is inspired by Gin and Platonic by the Smittens.

Produced, mixed and recorded by Simon Trought.

Mastered by Adam Nunn at Abbey Road.
