文字回顧 Concert Review

 專輯評論 Full Review

…… 這個簡約表演就像是他們完整演唱會中清唱 Therapy 部分的延續篇。有時候一切還原基本步便能令人會心微笑,可況是對著對樂隊充滿傾慕的死忠樂迷喔…… 眾所周知 All Time Low 演唱會有個歌迷將胸罩拋到舞台的傳統。這夜佻皮的胸罩堆中有隻可愛小兔子作同伴,其間一個女樂迷不斷大叫「嫁給我」!

… It was like that extended mellow break when they played Therapy in their full-length concert set. The mellifluous vocal and instrumental foundation easily cling to everyone in the venue, especially when the audience are diehards with deep admiration for the band… It was a well-known All Time Low tradition that fans throw bras to the stage during the show. And this night the fancy bras got a little bunny as companion as a fan girl passed it to the stage with a loud scream of MARRY ME!

[NEWS] Darling Down Releases Quentin Tarantino Style Video “Never Tell”

Female fronted Rock band Darling Down release new video “Never Tell”. The track comes from their new album Never Tell which features collaborations with accomplished guest musicians including Clint Lowery of Sevendust, Vinnie Dombrowski of Sponge, Stephen Richards of Taproot, and Brett Hestla of Dark New Day.

Ryan Hudson describes “The best part of the video is all the gore. We filmed it with inspiration from Eli Roth and Quentin Tarantino. I was surprised to learn how the special effects makeup artist made blood splatter. Let’s just say there was a lot of spitting.”

以女主將為首的搖滾樂隊Darling Down發布新視頻 Never Tell。歌曲收錄於同名專輯,當中與多個音樂單位合作,包括 Sevendust 的 Clint Lower、Sponge 的 Vinnie Dombrowski、Taproot 的 Stephen Richards 和 Dark New Day 的 Brett Hestla 等等。成員 Ryan Hudson 談到 Never Tell 視頻説:「影片中最好的必定是血腥部分。我們從導演 Quentin Tarantino 和 Eli Roth 得到拍攝靈感。我很興奮學習到特效化妝師製作血液飛濺的過程。」
