Allo Darlin’ reveal their final music video for their farewell single “Hymn On The 45” ahead of their Last Big Weekend of sold-out gigs in London. After this, that’s it. It’s the last chance to experience what a truly magical and unique band Allo Darlin’ are.

It often surprises people how popular Allo Darlin’ became – an understated yet joyous quarted, injecting a new vitality in to the indie pop genre. While devoted fans flocked to the front of the stage to sing along with Elizabeth Morris‘ warm and engaging lyrics, or watch mesmerised as guitarist Paul Rains shredded with melodic solos, the press accolades continued to flood in. As Kevin Attics from Mercury Girls testified in his recent guest post for Gold Flake Paint; “They conducted themselves with grace from start to finish. Their farewell single, “Hymn on the 45” is a powerful, perfect goodbye note to the world. They go out opining the power of music and imploring us to “turn it up”. It’s both conciliatory and heartbreaking.”

 

Following the track premiere on Stereogum last week and a glowing Pitchfork review, the video for “Hymn On The 45” (directed by Dik Ng) was premiered via Brooklyn Vegan, who wrote: “Like their best moments, “Hymn on the 45″ is wistful, romantic, and makes nods to the connection between life and the records we love. We’ve got the premiere of the video. a trip down memory lane that’s like watching old home movies.”

Comprised of two brand new recordings by the band, “Hymn On The 45” and “Wanderlust”, the single is due out as a limited edition gold vinyl 7” on the 9th December via Fortuna POP! and The Hangover Lounge, and will be available exclusively at the sold-out London gigs on the 10th December at MOTH Club and the 11th December at Scala. The tracks will also be available to purchase digitally via the band’s Bandcamp.
The A-side “Hymn On The 45”, weaves Elizabeth Morris’ heartfelt lyrics about starting afresh in a new city with guitarist Paul Rain’s signature stylings, ending with a heartwarming sing-a-long. The B-side “Wanderlust”, about missing people and places whilst embarking on your own adventures, is classic Allo Darlin’ fare, blending poignant melancholia with bright and sunny pop melodies.
About Allo Darlin’:
Allo Darlin’ are many things. They can turn a room in a famous punk venue into a joyous, jumping, sweaty, pop-mosh pit. Or bring a room of 500 to hushed silence with the few strums of a ukulele and a love song about cooking chilli. Their DIY attitude inspires true dedication from their fans, some of whom will travel hundreds of miles to see them.
Allo Darlin’ were formed after Australian Elizabeth Morris arrived in London and bought a ukulele from the Duke of Uke shop in Shoreditch. She began writing music and was soon joined by fellow Australian Bill Botting (bass), Paul Rains (guitar), and Michael Collins (drums). The band have toured across the USA and Europe, as well as wowing the crowds at End Of The Road and Indietracks festival. The band have been strongly supported by BBC 6music, and in turn they played live outside Broadcasting House as part of the campaign to save the station. They’ve also recorded several sessions for Marc Riley, Steve Lamacq and Lauren Laverne at the BBC, and also for John Kennedy at Radio X.
Their self-titled debut was released to universal acclaim in 2010 with plaudits including being named No. 2 record of the year by eMusic, and a glowing 1,200 word essay by legendary Go-Between Mr. Robert Forster in the Australian critical magazine, The Monthly. This was followed by Europe (2012), earning them Rough Trade’s Album Of The Month as well as rave reviews in NME and Pitchfork, and their most accomplished work to date, We Come From The Same Place (2014).
“Breezy rom-pop brilliance.” NME
“Classic indie pop… doesn’t rewrite the formula for wistful bedsit charm as much as show that it can still be carried out masterfully.” Pitchfork
“A masterclass of modern cult pop.” The Guardian
“Terrific, witty and heartfelt, like a less moody Belle & Sebastian.” The New York Times
