The Darcys latest release, Warring, has been in the making for three long years and created in part by the inspirational sonic opuses of the 70’s (according to the synopsis of the album over at Amazon). I on the other hand didn’t find it so much an homage to the 70’s, but rather a compelling look at the late 80’s, 90’s and beyond. 
 
Truth is, the album is pretty damn good no matter what era it is attempting to pay tribute to. Singer Jason Couse and Michael Le Riche’s vocals are melancholy, dark, and hypnotizing, Dave Hurlow’s Bass playing is ominous and warning, and Wes Marksell’s drumming pieces the whole thing together with a sort of drum march in every song. 
 
Warring is a mesmerizing album that harkens back to bands like My Bloody Valentine, sounds bit like Lost Valentino’s, but all together reads like a collection of funeral hymns, weather or not they are shooting for gloomy or not. In any case, the album comes together quite nicely offering up another slab of great sounding indie rock that will suffice for fans of the genre as well as reach across boundaries and entice people to come and have a look weather they like the music or not. It just has this chilling feel to it should that will draw the curious.
