We’ve had some great live reviews recently. Here’s what people have been saying
“The Darlingtons are a highly fuelled gang of four with enough energy to run the national grid.” – Mancunian Ways
“I think to even attempt to describe their set is impossible, you just can’t do it justice, it’s one of those things you just have to experience for yourself to fully grasp it” – Bittersweet Symphonies
“Their set, though every bit as encompassing as we’d hoped for, is over all too soon. What it does do, however, is solidify The Darlingtons as one of the best live bands around at the moment” - Little Indie Blogs
