Earlier this month, Toronto’s The Darcys released their new track “Running For The Hills”, offering up a glimpse at what we might expect to hear on their next record, due to be released next year. The always evolving duo recently announced big changes for the band as they packed up and relocated to Los Angeles. Watch The Darcys live session below, where they perform the new track along with another recent single “No Regrets” for Indie88’s Live Sessions series.
“I grew up in Toronto; its coffee shops, shawarma restaurants, and construction sites are in my blood,” Wes Marskell explains. “Toronto will always be my home, but I’ve had this ongoing love affair with Los Angeles (something I probably didn’t suppress all that well on our last few records). With everything happening in the world this year, I packed my stuff and moved to LA. There was no sign, no grand gesture, it just felt like now or never.”
“I’m well aware that the bright lights of LA can often be a mirage, but I needed to live it for myself,” Marskell continues. “This city has spit out a lot better than I over the years, and I could easily be just another one of them, but that’s a fate I’d rather tempt than live forever not knowing. At its core, that’s what ‘Running For The Hills’ is about. It’s about change and it’s about looking forward, not back.”
