In celebration of Record Store Day, The Darcys have put together an epic instrumental piece, spanning no less than 22 minutes that they have described as “an experiment in creating sound that reflects emotion”.
Hymn for a Missing Girl was inspired by pieces from Cormac McCarthy’s Cities of the Plain, written over last summer within a barn in Grey Highlands, Ontario.
Coming after their 2013 Juno-nominated full-length Warring, this instrumental release does a fantastic job as a follow-up release.
The tracks jump around from ambient, choral melodies over to harder-hitting driving electronic beats, to a more noisy, drone mess and then an intense, desolate post-rock bit until it finally wraps up with hopeful, string-led ambience.
