the lazy darlings

The Lazy Darlings are a Leeds based band who feature members (or ex members) of the likes of I Concur, The Lodger (Tim Corbridge played the lapsteel on the wonderful Good Old Days) and Ali Whitton & The Broken Record Players. I have enjoyed listening to their songs this past week and they are a mixture of indie pop, alt. country with some sixties sounds thrown in for good measure to create a distinctive Yorkshire twang.

Whilst they remind me a bit of The Rockingbirds who were doing something similar at the beginning of the 1990’s there is more than enough originality here to keep them on your radar screen for 2009.

You can stream their songs via My Space , which include the single Life Is Easy (video above), or download the two tracks they have made freely available at last.FM
