Canadian alt-rock act The Darcys explores toxicity and burn out within creativity on “Washed Away,” a moody yet dreamy alt-rock production founded on layers of guitars leading into an anthemic chorus.
With an explosive energy that offsets the vulnerable honesty of the message, the track delves into the suffocation of trying to keep your head above water, especially within the creative field. Capturing the intense feelings of pushing ourselves in an effort to meet our own expectations and better ourselves, “Washed Away,” is a cathartic dive into a musician’s mentality, that also feels relatable to just about anyone with goals and dreams.
Infused with hope that comes from letting go of the burden of perfection we put on ourselves, the track taken from The Darcys forthcoming EP traces the Toronto duo’s ever-changing artistry framed around vibrant imagery and playful song writing. With a decade of music behind them, The Darcys continue to define and polish their creativity and craft.
