The superbly jangly “Northern Lights” is the third single to be taken from Allo Darlin’s second album ‘Europe’. Written about a New Year’s Eve spent in Sweden it somehow manages to imbue a wintery scene with a sweet breath of sunshine as Elizabeth Morris’ voice rings out clear as a bell and Paul Rain’s guitar melodies shine brightly. The single heralds Allo Darlin’s most high profile tour to date, which kicks off on 31 August and runs throughout September. Stepping up several venue sizes due to public demand, the band continues to rise as their profile ever increases. Whether it be through word of mouth or via the positive press coverage and radio play, Allo Darlin have built up an army of fiercely loyal fans who enthusiastically sing along to every word that comes out of Morris’ mouth. The London-based four-piece – led by ukulele-toting Australian songbird Elizabeth Morris, with guitarist Paul Rains, Bill Botting on the bass and Michael Collins on drums – create perfect, sophisticated pop gems and know how to put on a joyous, effervescent, fun-filled live show.
Achingly personal, incredibly poignant and familiar all at once, Elizabeth Morris’ songwriting has deepened and developed since their debut, but they’ve lost none of their ability to create sophisticated, intelligent pop music with an uplifting, joyous feel. Their self-titled debut was released to universal acclaim with plaudits including being named No. 2 record of the year by online retailer eMusic and a glowing 1,200 word essay by legendary Go-Between Mr. Robert Forster in the Australian critical magazine, The Monthly. Their follow-up ‘Europe’ earned them Rough Trade’s album of the month for May and an 8/10 in NME and saw them touring for most of the year, including a successful Stateside run of shows with support from The Wave Pictures, where the album had rave reviews in Pitchfork and in USA Today. // "… breezy rom-pop brilliance… Their second album finds them poised between The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Stornaway and Kirsty MacColl." NME 8/10 //
