Those Darlins: Screws Get Loose
Steve LaBate, Paste, 29 March 2011
WHETHER YOU THOUGHT they were a quirky-obnoxious novelty act or a gang of infinitely charming, boots-are-made-for-rockin' Americana party girls, forget your initial impression of Those Darlins. Because, over the last few years, the band has become the spirit of rock 'n' roll incarnate — a slightly older, wiser, modern-day Southern-garage version of The Runaways. "Why should the boys have all the fun?" their mere presence seems to shout. "We will out-drink, out-party and out-rock all of you!" And anyone who's witnessed the runaway-train-wreck amphetamine cattle prod of their live performances knows they take this fearless, let-it-ride approach with them on stage every night.
