In Town This Month… Strangled Darlings

Drawing inspiration from author William Faulkner in their name and Southern Gothic style of folk‑Americana, Strangled Darlings is roving partners‑collaborators George Veech and Jess Anderly. Originally from Portland, Oregon, the couple now lives and tours in a 20‑foot RV.

 

Anderly says the band’s sound can be compared to Courtney Barnett, Shovels & Rope and Modest Mouse. “We write groove‑driven, blues‑tinged American tunes that bounce between traditional and modern,” she says.

 

Veech has a degree in English Lit echoed in erudite subject matter and tight picking and plucking mandolin chops, while Anderly—a classically‑trained violinist whose primary instrument is now solid body custom cello—delivers counter melodies, low end grooves and foot percussion, her husky‑honeyed backing harmonies a tuneful counter to his tarnished tenor in their bouncy shambling, Southern gothic folk‑Americana odes.

 

The duo performs at the Green Door Music Hall Thursday, Feb. 2, at 9 p.m., followed by a Feb. 3 gig at 30A Songwriter Music and Coffee in Santa Rosa Beach (7 p.m.) and a stint at Roberts Hall in Lynn Haven Feb. 5 at 3 p.m.
