Today, Darcys kick off the holiday season with an original Christmas song, “Another Log On The Fire”, available to stream and download everywhere on November 24.
Written, recorded, and produced by Jason Couse and Wes Marskell, “Another Log On The Fire” offers Darcys fans a new holiday classic. Mixed by Matty Green (Coldplay, Rhianna, The Weeknd, DUA LIPA), the track is a genuine seasonal earworm about giving that special loved one the perfect gift this Christmas.
“We were considering releasing a Christmas cover this year when we thought it would be more fun to created something original,” says the band. “It’s a pretty simple concept: who doesn’t want to keep the fire burning a little longer this Christmas?”
Darcys are a JUNO Award and Polaris Music Prize nominated pop duo and production / songwriting team from Toronto. Never shy of taking a risk, Darcys have released three original albums, and a reworking of Steely Dan’s classic “AJA”, and a 20-minute southern-gothic themed instrumental based on a Cormac McCarthy novel. Most recently, Darcys released a transformative road trip record, Centerfold. Lush with vibrant synths and funky bass, the album feels as at home in 2017 as it would in 1986.
