Hard-strumming her uke with the “ooh-wah” backing of the boys (a nice gender twist on Phil Spectorish 1960s girl-group pop), Morris swung through “If Loneliness Was Art” (“Can you feel the pulse / my heavy heart race?”) before turning “Darren” into a peppy tale of dogged preoccupation. “I can stay forever hanging out,” she repeated, mantra-like, throughout the melody’s hypnotic sonic display.

Still, Allo Darlin’ didn’t shy from teasing lyricism. Bill Botting’s melodic, thumb-plucked bass during “My Heart is a Drummer” sounded so much like “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” it was only natural to bite off a piece of Cyndi Lauper’s classic with the audience joining in for its “they just wanna” coda. – [Philadelphia Enquirer]

Putting the UK in ukulele, London-based pop charmers Allo Darlin’ are currently touring North America in support of their third album, We Come from the Same Place, and stopped in NYC on Friday (10/10) for a show at Glasslands. (They played Philly on Saturday, which is where the above review is from.) Opening were local band Sapphire Mansions who are currently working on their second LP.
