DARCYS UNVEIL NEW VIDEO FOR “MIRACLE”
Toronto’s beloved alt pop duo Darcys recently unveiled their first new music in two years, the bright, summery single “Miracle” which was produced by recent Grammy and JUNO-Award winner Shawn Everett (Alabama Shakes, Julian Casablancas) and what has been called an “outlandish exploration of pop ambition.” Today they share the new Footloose-inspired video for “Miracle” directed by Common Good, who recently won a Much Music Video Award for their work with Majid Jordan and Drake.
“Miracle” was recorded at Red Bull Studios in Auckland, New Zealand, and is the Arts & Crafts’ recording artists’ first commercial release since 2013’s Polaris and JUNO-nominated album Warring. The track, mixed by Matty Green (The Weeknd, TV On The Radio) and mastered by Emily Lazar (Vampire Weekend, Haim), sees the band – consisting of Jason Couse and Wes Marskell – exploring its pop ambitions and drawing from long-standing influences like Prince, The Killers, MGMT, and Chromeo.
The band played their first live date in two years this May in Toronto for Red Bull Sound Select, and will continue a string of dates throughout the summer starting tomorrow with a very special performance at Wayhome Festival’s Art Walk as well as two nights inVancouver with AWOLNATION and stops in Edmonton for Sonic Boom Festival, in Calgary for X Fest and Victoria for Rifflandia. Full tour dates can be found below with more dates to be added soon.
The Darcys are a band from Toronto, Canada. Over four previous releases on Arts & Crafts they have delivered two studio albums, a reimagining of Steely Dan’s AJA, and a 20-minute Southern Gothic-themed instrumental track. You can purchase them all via thedarcys.ca.
