With a desire to blend the "seductive glamour of goth" with pop hooks, prog experimentation and the narrative style of folk, Darla And The Blonde are looking to cover a broad spectrum, but again they succeed to doing just as they say. There is a robustly powerful vocal to 'End Of The Party, and a brooding, mysterious alt-rock quality. While the music may not be overtly commercial, the melody and stomping force of the song prevent it from becoming too niche, and you can see it having a wide appeal. They sound like a very tight unit and the production really brings out the best of the song, so we surely expect to be hearing much more about these guys in the coming months.
