The Polaroid Song is the first fruit from Allo, Darlin’s debut album, recorded at Soup Studios below the Duke of Uke and scheduled for release in 2010.

A breezy, bouncy, eighties-style pop song that could have come straight from the soundtrack of a John Hughes movie, it was inspired by Polaroid’s decision to stop manufacturing the iconic film, a move that prompted Elizabeth’s photography-obsessed boyfriend to start his own stockpile.

B-side Will You Please Spend New Year’s With Me? possesses a childlike naivety and emotional directness that conjures up the anti-folk lullabies of Kimya Dawson.
