Watch The Darcys’ New Lyric Video for “Washed Away”

By: Staff –

Fresh off of their Canadian tour dates and the success of their Top 5 Billboard hit “Running For The Hills”, beloved alt-rock duo The Darcys (Jason Couse and Wes Marskell) continue exploring their dreamy soundscape with the release of “Washed Away,” a moody alt-rock smash with syncopated guitar work that drives to an explosive and anthemic chorus. Watch the new lyric video below.

Feeling the influence of their new home of California in their ever-evolving sound, “Washed Away” finds The Darcys opening up about the sometimes isolating and dejected experience of being an independent act in an era that values quantity over quality.

Washed Away” is about trying to keep your head above water. The expectation for new music and endless content means sink or swim for artists like us. If you’re not always generating, releasing, and growing, it’s easy to feel like you’ll quickly be forgotten,” the band explains. “The pattern is nothing new: when we try to meet every expectation of our band, our mental health suffers, we burn out, and it’s difficult to find our way back to the surface. We wanted to confront and acknowledge this toxic cycle as a first step to bettering our complicated relationship with creativity. Turning these feelings into a song was extremely rewarding and you can hear that when the bridge offers the listener a little bit of hope in the form of a lifeline.”
