L.A based quartet The Darlings won 2010´s Ernie Balls Battle of the bands and in 2012, their debut full length "The New Escape" is released. And this album is like a c-vitamin injection, talk about refreshing rocknroll with uplifting melodies and attitude. You´ll hear a little bit of everything with anything from The Clash to The Pirates and Green Day to Skids, they´re like a classic rock version of a 70´s punk band. But the most cool thing is that their songs would do justice on active rock radio as well, this ain´t music for just one group of people. Highlights are "The agressor", "Fight alone" and "Where do we go". Thumbs up for a great album!
