The Darcys

Canada's the Darcys are a dance-oriented, electronic-pop duo featuring singer/songwriters Jason Couse and Wes Marskell. Named after the iconic character from Jane Austen's classic novel Pride and Prejudice, the Darcys formed in Etobicoke, Ontario in 2007. After relocating to Halifax, Nova Scotia, the group expanded into a four-member band and released their debut, 2007's Endless Water. Subsequently, they moved to Toronto and added a fifth member. In 2011, they released their sophomore album, The Darcys. Over the next several years, the band underwent even more changes, losing bandmembers and releasing an experimental cover of Steely Dan's 1977 album Aja. In 2013, they released their third album, Warring. Well-received, it garnered the band their first Juno Award nomination for Alternative Album of the Year and found them longlisted for the 2014 Polaris Music Prize. The following year, the Darcys revealed that they had formally returned to their original duo lineup of Couse and Marskell. In 2016, the band released their fourth studio album, Centerfold. Recorded in New Zealand, Los Angeles, Banff, and Toronto with producer Shawn Everett (Alabama Shakes, Lucius, Julian Casablancas), the album included the singles "Miracle" and "San Diego, 1988." ~ Matt Collar
