Track Of The Day 23/9 - Those Darlins

Oh God
Those Darlins

Defined retrospectively, garage rock is far broader than it's scratchy-three-chord template might suggest.

The White Stripes would dig out their acoustic guitar occasionally, while even noiseniks like The Dirtbombs are capable of crafting something romantic, something seductive.

Renowned for their ballsy, furious take on garage punk, Those Darlins also have another side to their persona. Based in Nashville - fast becoming a hotbed for new groups - the band know how to play it straight, how to pull at your heartstrings.

New album 'Blur The Line' is set to be released on October 21st, and represents another teenage snarl from the four piece. Expanding their songwriting palette, there are tinges of Fleetwood Mac here alongside the odd Neil Young flourish.

Roger Moutenot steps in on production, bringing out some lighter shades from Those Darlins. Ahead of the album release, Clash is able to stream new cut 'Oh God' which is plucked squarely from the more playful side of the divide.

Slow, soft and tender, you can listen to it below.
