The inner-sleeve of Those Darlins' self-titled debut CD features a noir-ish black and white photo of three ladies Nikki, Jessi and Kelley Darlin huddled in a corner at some dive bar, drinks half-drunk. Each one of them looks like a rural siren, brandishing poker faces at once devious and doe-eyed.
There's awesome trouble lingering in the allure of the Murfreesboro, Tenn., trio's rollicking country and rock n' roll numbers that seethe with emotional twang and rich tales of debauchery in the wilds of middle Tennessee.
The group's dichotomy is best illustrated in the opening line of their lament to being reckless women, "Wild One." Vocalist and ukulele strummer Nikki Darlin sweetly croons, "I may be a little darling gal of yours/That's when I'm straight and sober and both feet are on the floor/But sometimes when the booze gets a hold of me/I get the devil in my eyes and I'm running wild and free."
