Darlings is the second solo album by Broken Social Scene co-founder Kevin Drew. It was released on March 18, 2014. The album was recorded at the Banff Centre in Alberta with Graham Lessard and then taken to a house in Northern Ontario with Dave Hamelin for final recording and mixing. The album also features longtime collaborators Charles Spearin and Ohad Benchetrit along with Dean Stone. The first single taken from the album was Good Sex. "Body Butter" – 2:25.

At 37 years old, Kevin Drew can be described as a world-weary optimist. Over 15 years into his career, his still-youthful songs revolve around love, reassuring the heartbroken and resiliently fighting for it. As co-founder and primary vocalist for the profoundly influential Canadian indie rock collective Broken Social Scene, Drew has been a constant for the group, staying a main songwriting force in their revolving door lineup. He describes the album as being about the rise and fall of love and sex, in my own life and in today’s society. With the lead single, Good Sex, Drew aims to accomplish just that.

Kevin Drew would make a great poet laureate under Toronto’s current regime, but unfortunately the guy in charge seems like more of a hip-hop fan. For the past decade, Drew’s work as a solo artist and with Broken Social Scene has dealt in sex, drugs, politics, and the politics of druggy sex, and though he’s clearly been deposed as the T. Dot’s resident superfreak, Darlings finds him going down swinging. Here are three of its first four songs: Body Butter ; Good Sex ; Mexican Aftershow Party. The electronics don’t make Darlings a particularly modernist record, but the album does have a strange timeliness. As with the most recent releases from Jim James, Devendra Banhart, Volcano Choir, and Wild Beasts, there seems to be a trend of aging men gravitating towards a sound where guitars no longer convey their inner lusts and desires.

Kevin Drew (born September 9, 1976) is a Canadian musician and songwriter who, together with Brendan Canning, founded the expansive Toronto baroque-pop collective Broken Social Scene. He was also part of the lesser-known KC Accidental, which consisted of Drew and Charles Spearin, another current member of Broken Social Scene. In 2008 he wrote and directed a short film called "The Water," inspired by and starring his bandmate and former girlfriend Leslie Feist.

Darlings is the second solo outing from Canadian singer/songwriter and Broken Social Scene frontman Kevin Drew. Arriving a full seven years after 2007's Spirit I. which was billed as "Broken Social Scene Presents: Kevin Drew" and featured contributions from most of his bandmates, Darlings comes across as a more focused and decidedly more solo effort than its predecessor. The sprawling pop experimentalism that was the bedrock of his former project has been subdued and refined to fit Drew's more singular vision and sharpened songwriting.
