Darlings played Kim's Video and Music

On March 15, Darlings released their new EP and played a local video and music store in New York City. The band set up shop in front of the blaxploitation, giallo and porno shelves and played catchy pop-punk songs that reminded me of old Sebadoh and Pavement tunes, but with female vocals thrown in the mix. Darlings is made up of four friends who met during their college years at NYU and started playing together in 2007. Peter Rynsky (guitar and vocals), Maura Lynch (guitars and vocals), Joe Tirabassi (bass) and Matt Solomon (drums) played a bunch of upbeat garage-pop tunes to a crowd of people wedged between the used CDs and vinyl racks. They played a decent amount of tunes: a couple from their new EP titled “Warma” on Famous Class Records which they recorded last year and newer songs too. I believe this was the first in-store performance at Kim’s Video and Music since their move to 124 1st Ave. and it was definitely a nice one and hopefully there will be more to come. Darlings have a couple shows coming up in the near future: March 25 The Record Release Show with So So Glos, Snakes Say Hiss, Sundelles and Teen Witch at 285 Kent Ave. in Brooklyn 7 p.m. ($7) and April 12 at Glasslands 289 Kent Ave. in Brooklyn 8:30 p.m. ($8 adv) with Surf City, Lingering Doubts and Little Racer.
