Allo Darlin’ are a fan’s band, with a DIY ethos. They are close friends who found each other and the music they make in London. Elizabeth and Bill are from Australia, Mike and Paul are from Kent. Their self-titled debut was released on Fortuna Pop in June 2010 to widespread critical acclaim. Their second album, Europe, was Rough Trade’s best-selling record of 2012 and was highly placed in many best of the year polls, including Rolling Stone, Emusic and Rough Trade. They have spent much of the past three years touring America and around Europe, including sold-out tours of the UK. They are currently working on new material and plan to record their third album in the summer of 2013.
