The Last Six Minutes in the Life of a Band

Beloved indie band Allo Darlin’ have decided to call it quits after eight years. They made three three exceptionally tuneful albums that were also complex and rewarding in the way that the best songcraft always is. Here is a fan-shot video of the very end of their farewell concert in London over the weekend; it’s bursting with both joy and sadness in every note, handclap and dance step.

As a parting gift, the band have also released their last ever single, a lovingly wrought number called “Hymn on the 45,” available over at A bittersweet au revoir to a special band, and more proof that 2016 marks the end of all good things.
