The Darcys are a two-piece art rock band from Toronto, Ontario. They released their debut album, Endless Water, in 2007. Subsequently, the band signed a three-album deal with the record label Arts & Crafts. The third of those, 2013’s Warring, was nominated for a Juno Award for Alternative Album of the Year, and was a Long List nominee for the 2014 Polaris Music Prize. On December 17, 2014, The Darcys announced the band will be going forward as a duo consisting of founding members Jason Couse and Wes Marskell.
