The Darcys are an alternative pop duo from Toronto, Canada that combine the anthemic songwriting of The Killers and Arctic Monkeys with the dance-floor-ready fun of Chromeo and Justice.
Always the life of the party, The Darcys’ music is lush with vibrant synths, 808s and funk bass that makes their sound feel as at home in today’s modern pop landscape as it would in a crate of classic vinyl. Never shy of taking a risk, the critically acclaimed duo have created an expansive body of work that includes three full-length albums, a 20-minute instrumental piece, an atmospheric interpretation of Steely Dan’s AJA and a number of exciting collaborations. The Darcys last studio record, Centerfold, a California postcard rich with themes of escape was both a commercial and artistic breakthrough for the band. 2018 sees another evolution for The Darcys as they turn their gaze inward, writing songs with a maturity and social awareness not heard on previous releases. This isn’t to say the party is over, if anything it’s just begun.
