You wouldn’t think it, but indie rock and country pop can indeed go hand-in-hand, and Those Darlins are the perfect example of the blend. The title track to their new EP, Wild One, is a fun mix of multi-part female harmony and old-time-y country.
That being said, any and all who dig this sort of sound who also live in a decent radius of Seattle should make sure and clear tomorrow’s schedule as these ladies will be in town at the Showbox. Then they’re off to Portland, San Francisco, and Los Angeles before trudging their way East to the massive Texas fun-fest SXSW.
