YouTube Rodeo: Allo Darlin's Dazzling "Capricornia"
And I keep having these dreams and I keep having these dreams and I keep having these dreams... Ahead of the March 6 release date for its latest single "Capricornia" that we wrote about here in January, Allo Darlin' has unveiled the video for same. Six weeks ago we called the half-Kentish, half-Australian quartet's fizzing and jangly confection "a great breezy pop song that is very comfortable staying within a small conceptual box neatly labeled 'breezy pop song' on its firmly placed lid." We think the song is even more winsome when paired with this playful video of the band performing interspersed with vintage film footage shot at unnamed, sun-splashed beaches. "Capricornia" is the first single from All Darlin's sophomore full-length Europe, which features 10 songs and will be released April 17. Both the single -- whose b-side is titled "When You Were Mine" and may very well be a cover of the devastating Prince jam of the same name -- and the long-player will be issued in the U.S. by Slumberland. Bon appetit.
