X-Darlings “Dead Toy Capital Of The World”

X-DARLINGS started as a studio duo (Harry Darling of BITCH QUEENS and Isabela Eder of DELILAHS) and has evolved into a full band introducing themselves with this debut album “Dead Toy Capital Of The World.” Opening song “Are You Talking To Me?” hits hard since it mixes infuences such as DEVO and The CRAMPS with a glam vibe. This song actually reminds me of the amazing PINK GREASE. You’ll hear some garage rock’n’roll guitars in “There For You” and in “Laxative”, some modern rock (‘Snap Out Of It”, “Sucks To Be You” or “Particle Collision” that almost starts like BACKYARD BABIES‘ “Minus Celsius”) and some punk rock in “Keep Reading.” While the album definitely has a lot of energy and a will to make us dance, songs like “In Transit” and “Brand New Day” show us that X-DARLINGS also has an interesting quieter pop side. Quite a convincing debut album, check it out! /Laurent C.
