LA-based band NO is touring in support of their lauded debut, El Prado. The sextet create a sound that is intimate and personal but also bombastic enough to fill arenas. Because of this, NO have drawn favorable comparisons to The National, especially due to lead singer Bradley Carter’s vocal similarities to Matt Berninger’s deep, brooding growl. At their best, NO connect to the rhythm of life that is both raw and comforting.
The Darcys latest, Warring, is reminiscent of Arcade Fire’s Funeral in scope and ambition, putting them in very good company. At times unconventional and artistically nuanced, anxious and triumphant, The Darcys show a penchant for songs with great hooks that reveal new layers with each listen.
