Formed in Toronto, Canada by Wes Marskell and Jason Couse, The Darcys make groove-forward alt-pop. The duo have released three critically acclaimed full-length albums, a 20-minute instrumental piece entitled Hymn For A Missing Girl, and a lo-fi interpretation of Steely Dan's masterpiece AJA.
Their catalogue, lush with vibrant synths, 808s and funk bass, has a sound that feels timeless yet contemporary in today's modern pop landscape. Following a busy international touring schedule, The Darcys had both a commercial and artistic breakthrough with 2016’s California-inspired Centerfold. In 2018, the duo released the summery "Just Here with My Friends” featuring Leah Fay of July Talk and the soulful single "Chasing the Fall." Both singles were received extremely well, garnering crossover success for the duo and their new pop-minded sound. The Darcys evolution continued into 2019 with “Hurt," a pop-ballad-turned-epic driven by Couse’s powerful vocal performance, and an acoustic cover of Billie Eilish’s "Ocean Eyes." The duo will continue to release singles in anticipation of a forthcoming full-length album.
