To get a good sense on what Those Darlins are all about simply listen to “Wild One,” the second track on their 2009 rip-roaring self-titled debut. The three Darlins girls pretty much sum up their musical personas when they sing that, “if you can’t handle crazy, then go ahead and leave/if you don’t want a wild one, don’t hang around with me.” Even if the song isn’t autobiographical, it speaks to the trio’s devilish nature. The Tennessee-based band borrows punk’s unbridled attitude and transports it to rural mountain music. Now Those Darlins are back on the road in support of their excellent Screws Get Loose released on Oh Wow Dang earlier this year.
