THE DARCYS SHARE NEW SINGLE “CHASING THE FALL”
“Chasing the Fall” is about taking a tumble down the rabbit hole. It’s a night in your life that starts out strange and only continues into disarray. Discussing, Wes Marskell from the band stated, “I like the images of Zinfandel by the pool, casinos and heart-shaped jacuzzis, as they all have the kitsch of a love story in a bad movie. However, there’s an unlikeliness to the events, hitting the jackpot or rain in Palm Springs, and you get the feeling you’re letting someone take you on a ride that’s full of chaos. Once you’ve done it, you’ll do anything to do it again.”
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 collaborations. The band’s last studio record, 2016’s Centerfold, is a California postcard, rich with themes of escape. 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.
Release Date: October 12, 2018
