Toronto-based duo The Darcys helps us un-shitty our pessimistic perspective in life and sparkle some optimism with their latest single “Better Days” – a jangly pop balladry that beams with all the mood-boosting aura of a colorful palette. If your life has become a noir film of routines with unexpected shitbombs, then “Better Days” is the anthem that splashes some color to it and reminds you that there is light at the end of the tunnel. Also, it’s an upbeat jam:

“When working on ‘Better Days,’ we knew wanted to write something that could become somewhat of a positive anthem… if anything, just for ourselves. We wanted a song that would remind us that it’s not all bad all the time, and to help us believe that better things are on the horizon. We figured… if it could navigate us through tough times, maybe it could help others too. The lyric video is an extension of that thought. Alon’s fun and creative visuals perfectly sync with the sentiments behind the song and add to the overall uplifting feeling we were chasing.” shared the duo.

Comprised of Jason Couse and Wes Marskell, The Darcys broke into the scene with their 2016’s California-inspired record Centerfold. The duo is currently working on their new album and will be hitting Riverfest this summer:
