Tennessee band Those Darlins have an infectiously catchy sound combining Southern rockabilly, tough '60s girl-group pop, and the upbeat punk bash of The Ramones. Like that band of phony brothers, the trio who make up the core of the group — Jessi, Nikki and Kelli — all adopted the stage surname Darlin. (Their drummer, Linwood Regensburg, graciously declined.)
Since the band formed in 2006, Those Darlins have played sold-out shows around the country, sharing a stage with blues-punk greats like The Black Keys and Jon Spencer as well as the Queen of Rockabilly herself, Wanda Jackson. They released their sophomore record, Screws Get Loose, earlier this year.
In the band's World Cafe appearance, Those Darlins delivers an energetic live set and discusses how its sound has developed in the years since the Darlins met at the Southern Girls Rock 'n Roll Camp. (link)
