Allo Darlin Announce New Song, Album and Tour

01/05/2012
.
(Sub) "Capricornia" the first single from Allo Darlin' sophomore album, Europe, is due for US release on March 6, 2012 with the full-length due on April 17.

The band will also be embarking on a full US tour to accompany the album release in April.

"Capricornia is the area in Queensland that I'm from. It has imaginary state lines, roughly around the Tropic of Capricorn, which runs directly through my hometown. There's a nice 70s monument that marks the spot where the line passes, out on a lonely dirt road where all the kids learn how to drive. My family have lived in this area for over 6 generations but none of my generation remain. It's a beautiful place.

Musically, when we first discussed the album with our producer, I suggested that the feel of Europe should be somewhere between "A New England" by Kirsty Macoll and "Cattle and Cane" by The Go-Betweens. I think this song is the closest to that."
