Those Darlins

Blur The Line feels like an eponymous debut. This record is not a departure, nor is it simply growth. It is a realization purely of where Those Darlins are as artists right now. After sophomore record Screws Get Loose, Jessi, Nikki, and Linwood set out to uncover the true complex, contradictory nature of themselves as individuals and as a band. The result is a record to file on your shelf between Patti Smith’s Easter and Fleetwood Mac’s Tusk. Blur The Line is a first-rate album of powerful tracks that mingle heavy rhythms and distorted Neil Young guitars with ear-candy harmonies and a slew of captivating lyrics. The band called on Roger Moutenot (Yo La Tengo, John Cale, JEFF the Brotherhood) to produce Blur The Line, and it turned out to be a revelation—a chance to stretch and give shape to their work with his supportive, laid back demeanor and experienced hands at the helm.

“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]

“My favorite band right now is Those Darlins, who have a really cool garage-country vibe. They're doing something totally out-of-the-box.” - [Bethany Cosentino of Best Coast, Rolling Stone’s Best of Rock]
