The Darcys
The Darcys
Renowned Toronto critic Ben Rayner once notably dubbed The Darcys “pathologically ambitious.” One of the band’s earliest champions, few in the media has ever better contextualized their career, or could set the tone for the record they’re about to release.

In simple terms, Darcys are an alternative pop duo from Toronto, Canada. Currently the band consists of singer and multi-instrumentalist Jason Couse and drummer / lyricist Wes Marskell. The duo is the group’s original core and also what remains of an ever-evolving lineup that’s delivered close to a half dozen releases in as many years.

November 4 marks the arrival of a new studio album, Centerfold, via Arts & Crafts - the latest from one of Canada’s most fearlessly creative, adventurously experimental groups, representing the culmination of almost a decade of challenging their own limitations.

Over the course of four official releases on Arts & Crafts, the Darcys have birthed two studio records (2011’s self-titled album and 2013’s Polaris and JUNO-nominated Warring), a full reimagining of Steely Dan’s AJA and a 20-minute Southern Gothic-themed instrumental track (2014 Record Store Day exclusive Hymn For A Missing Girl). They have worked with major producers and mixers, toured North America, Europe and Australia, self-produced subsequent releases, and been extensively covered by press from NPR to Nylon.
