Editors’ Notes

The Darcys’ vocalist, Jason Couse, has an aqueous tenor that recalls Bronski Beat’s Jimmy Somerville—and the excitement that Somerville’s unique voice injected into the dance music scene of the ’80s. Here, Couse’s vocals swerve between impassioned, airborne shades and the sounds of a battered, worn soul who’s perhaps been torn down but hasn't given up. Both personae fit The Darcys’ songs, with mostly somber keyboards and guitars. On tracks like “Close to Me” and the stunner “Pacific Theater,” stark arrangements and a sense of romantic doom are stirred by eerie synths, ominous percussion, and muted piano. When the band cranks up the energy levels a few notches—as on “Pretty Girls” and “Hunting”—the mood remains dark, with guitars sounding like they’re wrapped in glass and the rhythm section pumping as if it’s bailing out a leaky boat. Art-school lyrics like “Trees stood like knives/And claimed us for their own” paint chilling (and beautiful) pictures, while the instrumentation weaves a sturdy canvas. This album proves that this Canadian band is a real contender, and one to be watched—and admired.

Customer Reviews

Incredible

Really nice guys and so full of potential. Go see them live before they're plastered all over magazine covers! The album is worth every penny.

Awesome

One of the best new bands that I have heard in a long time. Mesmerizing!

Great Sound!

This album is worth every dollar and more. I love this band and can't wait to see them live! Last year, Alt-J got my "alternative album of the year" vote. This year, The Darcys "The Warring" gets my vote!
