30/11/2016 – Allo Darlin’-Hymn on the 45 (2016)

Allo Darlin’ bring their cult pop career to a close on a high



It is with a heavy heart, and a sad tone, that I write these words “Allo Darlin’ are releasing their last single”. Yup. It’s true. Elizabeth Morris, Paul Rains, Bill Botting and Mikey Collins are hanging up their guitars and microphones and calling it a day. But there is a silver lining. They are playing a few dates and new single Hymn on the 45/Wanderlust is about as good as they get. If this is the first time you’ve heard Allo Darin’ firstly that’s fine, secondly what have you been doing and thirdly, that’s cool.



Hymn on the 45/Wanderlust is released on December 9th through Fortuna POP! And the Hangover Lounge and comes on a delicious limited edition gold 7” single. Sadly it will only be on sale at their goodbye gigs, but if you want a digital version it’ll be on Allo Darlin’s Bandcamp page. The single is about moving on, starting a fresh and missing the people you’ve left behind. This is something that we’ve all been through, going to uni, getting a new job and moving away or just simply moving out of your parent’s house, but the intimate delivery is that makes these songs to immediate and touching. As usual there is a bright melancholy going on that gives you a warming hung while making you long for something past.


Allo Darling will play:



10th December: MOTH Club (2PM with Night Flowers)

10th December: MOTH Club (7PM with The Hayman Kupa Band)

11th December: Scala (7:30PM with Bill Botting and the Two Drink Minimums & Josie Long)

    Cool music! Fun to read about music with you.

  2. And they left us with one of their best tracks (but not THE best one). However, they did leave me with the greatest gig I’ve ever been to.
