NEW BAND CRUSH: THE DARTS (Southeast Tour Now)

November 20, 2017

I bought both albums (EP’s) on a whim at Easy Street Records, and have been obsessed ever since. Nope, never heard of them till that moment, but I loved the font for the band name, coupled with some cutesy suburban mom floral album covers, and it was a no-brainer.
Yeah I know I missed them at the Crocodile, but I’m yearning for The Darts to make a special trip back to Seattle, to entertain my inner Rrriot girl. You must check them the fuck out!….

Barely a year has flown by since Phoenix/LA garage-psych goddesses The Darts (US) wrapped up the final mixes of their phenomenal, self-titled debut EP, which was released on 10″ vinyl at the beginning of October 2016 off the back of a super-hot build-up buzz of local and national radio play, coupled with intense social media flattery and chatter before the band had even played their first gig.

Ever since that first fateful showing in Tucson, Nicole Laurenne (The Love Me Nots, Motobunny, Zero Zero), Rikki Styxx (The Two Tens, The Dollyrots, Thee Outta Sites), Christina Nunez (The Love Me Nots, Casual Encounters, The Madcaps) and Michelle Balderrama (Brainspoon) have blasted off like a guided missile, reaching speeds and heights over a global timeline that most new bands could never manage in the first year.

In summary, The Darts have self released two 10″ vinyl EPs, signed to an international record label, performed multiple tours of the US and Europe and have just completed their first full length album – which is now available and officially released at the end of September 2017. The album will then be showcased via more than a dozen gigs across two tours that month followed by another two weeks of shows in November.
