The Darling Buds are set to release a new EP ‘Evergreen’ on Cardiff based label Odd Box. It’s their first new material to be released in 25 years (back in the day they did 3 session for the much missed DJ John Peel). Listen to the lead track ‘Complicated’ below, a smart, breezy slice of gleaming bittersweet guitar pop detailing the complicated emotional roller coaster of a relationship.
After a few years of occasional gigging just for fun, The Darling Buds are releasing a new 4 track ep ‘Evergreen’ on Odd Box Records. The press release promises ‘these new recordings continue the musical evolution seen by the band from their indie pop debut Pop Said to their last release Erotica.’
The EP will be released on a limited edition 10″ EP and Cassette. There will be 100 green vinyl EPs and 400 in traditional black vinyl. There will be 100 released on cassette!
The Darling Buds line up is original singer and bass player Andrea Lewis-Jarvis and Chris McDonagh, former guitarists Paul ‘Chaz’ Watkins from the time of their second album Crawdaddy, and Matt Gray from the Erotica era. Long-time friend of the band Erik Stams completes the line up on drums.
The Band members are all still based in Newport, Wales.
