New Music from The Darcys

It seems like Arts and Crafts Records has been rather quiet for some time, but I’ve finally come across some new music from the label, by way of The Darcys.  They’ve got a new album, self-titled, coming out on October 25th, and this single is grabbing my attention.  It begins with this operatic opening, soaring vocals taking the focal point, but keep on listening. About midway, however, the song gently erupts with discordant guitars and bits of ambient noise exploding into the background.  It’s like Antony and the Johnsons if they chose to jump off and throw some guitars in the mix.  Should be an interesting listen come October.
