"Coming on like an unruly roller derby team popping open the beers after tearing some serious fishnet, Those Darlins make chugging, frugging, lo-fi shots of on-point, 'Nuggets'-flavored garage pop clatter called things like 'Fatty Needs A Fix' and 'Bumd' while squawking lines like "I just wanna be your brother/You just wanna stick it in" ('Be Your Bro')" - NME 8 out of 10

“Screws echews racing along on speed-fueled riffs for a glossy rockabilly swing. Their jangling shuffle explores the middle ground between the Go-Go’s and Merle Haggard. Yeah, that territory exists. And the chicken there is delicious” Time Out Chicago

Four years have gone by since Jessi Darlin (guitar/ bass), Nikki Darlin (guitar/ bass), spat in their palms and slapped hands in a three-way promise that would become Those Darlins. Since then, they’ve broken hearts and bones, all the while honing their chops and gaining a lifetime of experiences through endless touring: bros to the bitter end. Screws Get Loose celebrates the highs and bears the scars of the lows they’ve soldiered through together, accentuating the realities of growing up in a rock and roll band. The UK / European version of the album comes with 2 bonus tracks - ‘Prank Call’ and ‘Night Jogger’ - previously only available on limited edition 7” in the US.
 
The band re-enlisted producer Jeff Curtin (Small Black) and headed down to Atlanta, GA to record with engineer Ed Rawls at his Living Room Studio (Black Lips, Jacuzzi Boys).  While the band’s country punk nature is still evident, the Southern roots that shine through are more in line with the dirty South garage rock blasting out of Memphis, Atlanta, and Nashville in recent years. Haunting and hook-laden numbers such as “Hives,” “Tina Said,” and “BUMD” tussle with the confessional weight of other songs, like "Waste Away" and "Let U Down."  Stylistically, the band has created a range of sounds from Spector-esque summery girl pop of “Boy” to the fully-realized stoner jam of “Mystic Mind”.

Screws Get Loose is a collection of songs that haven’t lost any of the full-throttle charge of their early freewheeling anthems - with lyrics fuelled by life lessons of the road, the songs take on bold narratives, strong voices, and full-bodied performances that are a little less naïve but no less vibrant than previous offerings. Maturity and experience combine to open up new dimensions for Those Darlins without compromising the spirit, fun and frivolity that has come to define them.

Screws Get Loose is a collection of songs that haven’t lost any of the full-throttle charge of their early freewheeling anthems, “Red Light Love” and “Wild One,”. New tracks “Let You Down," “Be Your Bro,” and the album's title track, “Screws Get Loose” display the band’s newfound clarity.

“Those Darlins come off like the toughest, most dangerous group around. They deliver thrilling song after thrilling song….” AMG

“Those Darlins: A rubbery mess of warped guitar, notes bends around a driving xylophone, and as the song shifts into the verse, the sound is akin to a parallel-universe ’60s girl-group (albeit with snarlier vocals) playing full-on guitar-driven pop.” Nashvile Scene
