Your band is known for having a rowdy stage presence. What made you decide to keep that mentality at your shows?
We just like to get rowdy. We didn't decide on anything. we just do what feels natural. if nobody feels like getting rowdy on a night, nobody does. its as simple as that. you just gotta follow your gut.
How would you describe your band’s brand of feminism?
I wouldn't really try to describe it. We are just women who work in a male dominated field. We never set out and said "well, we are feminists so we better go do something about it". Instead, we just started playing music which is what we love, and we are first and formost musicians. We write songs about what we live and if it happens to make some sort of statement then that's great. I hope it inspires other women to jump in and do what they love too.
There have been a lot of negative stereotypes about female rock bands. How do you feel about the stereotypes and how do you feel your band overcomes them?
The only way to overcome a stereotype is to try to forget that it even exists and just do things the way you want to do them, and make decisions based on what you feel deep down inside is best for you. Just continue to be true to yourself and it'll all fall into place. What's the worst that could happen? Someone thinks you played out a stereotype? Who gives a shit?
If a movie was going to be made about your band, who would you want to star in it?
There doesnt need to be a movie because there is already a tv show called "The Golden Girls".
What is it like to party with your band?
its sexy and scary.
What is your ultimate goal for Those Darlins? What do you want to be known for?
We wanna be known for being real.
