Finding a moment of peace in the chaos, D'Arcy's 'when i can't sleep...' captures the magic of creating music in the stillness of the early morning.
There’s something about the early hours of the morning that inspire freedom in creativity. Free from the demands of the day in the stillness of silence, it’s a time that encourages dreaming and deep introspection.
Following summer single ‘baby i love you <3’, D’Arcy‘s recent track ‘when i can’t sleep…’ harnesses the creativity of this time. Peaceful and meditative, the song captures a moment deep in her feelings. With ethereal production and evocative lyrics, the artist pulls you into the blissful moment with her like a warm embrace.
“I wrote this song at 5AM when I couldn’t sleep. There was something magical about creating music in the early morning stillness,” she explains. “I finished the production within 20 minutes and recorded the vocals properly later on. The vocal demo was me just whispering into the computer so I didn’t wake anyone up.”
After releasing her acclaimed breakout debut album The Art of Flying in November 2021, D’Arcy’s been expanding her soundscapes and honing her artistry, as well as putting in her 10,000 hours performing live. Having played over 80 shows across the US, she’s supported bands including Lee DeWyze and She Wants Revenge as well playing techno and house DJ sets at iconic NYC venues like Good Room, Public and Le Bain. With her spellbinding sound, distinct artistic identity and more music on the way, D’Arcy’s next chapter is just getting started.
