Band to Watch: Allo Darlin'
U.K. band makes old jangle-pop moves sound fresh, with sharp wit and tunes that don't quit

Hometown: London

Backstory: Aussie-born Morris began Allo Darlin' as a solo project after moving to England in 2005. Guitarist Paul Rains, bassist Bill Botting and drummer Mikey Collins joined a few years later.

Meet Me Tonight: One of Allo Darlin's first songs to gain attention was an incongruously sunny cover of Bruce Springsteen's 1982 classic "Atlantic City" that Morris and Rains recorded for a 2009 tribute album.

Hot Clip: Watch the band perform a cover of the Go-Betweens' "Dive For Your Memory" above.
