More about Allo Darlin':
Allo Darlin' is the music of Australian-born, London-based songwriter Elizabeth Morris. Originally from a country town in Queensland, Elizabeth moved to London in 2005 and, inspired to write songs by her purchase of a ukulele from the famous Duke of Uke shop in Brick Lane, began to make music. Although she has been releasing music under various guises since 2007, it wasn't until 2009 that she hooked up with Paul Rains (guitar), Bill Botting (bass) and Michael Collins (drums) and Allo Darlin' was properly born.
Early in 2009, Allo Darlin' cut their first single, Henry Rollins Don't Dance, which received glowing reviews in places such as the Metro, The Fly and The Guardian, the latter calling it "the best indiepop song for years". The band's single that followed, The Polaroid Song, was named as one of Drowned In Sound's Top 50 singles of 2009, while their latest single Dreaming was voted Single Of The Week by Jarvis Cocker, Peter Hook and Huw Stephens on Steve Lamacq's BBC 6music round table (beating MGMT, The Radio Dept. and Kate Nash in the process!).
