from the Deranged Website, and a review:
Featuring Ben Cook and Matt Delong from NO WARNING and VIOLENT MINDS, the MARVELOUS DARLINGS take catchy punk to a level rarely seen or heard.
With a ’77 punk meets power pop style not unlike the Exploding Hearts, Toronto, ON’s Marvelous Darlings have produced a debut seven-inch so infectious it hurts. Featuring the former front-man and guitarist from No Warning and Violent Minds, I Don’t Wanna Go To The Party is the first of a few planned releases from the band in the not so distant future. Guaranteed to steal hearts and cause an influx of leather jackets and long hair at every show, “Careerist,” the B-side to this hand-clappingly hooky single, is just as contagious as the title track. Sure to cause involuntary foot tapping and quickly become the soundtrack to dirty dance parties everywhere, the slashing guitars and sing-along-worthy choruses on I Don’t Wanna Go To The Party will have even the most unlikely of fans hooked from the start. Here’s hoping that this brilliantly simple and fun release is a good indication of what’s to come from the Marvelous Darlings.
