Forever rushing forwards, ‘Saturday Night’ isn’t content to sit still. It’s illuminating and infuriating, but never easy to ignore.
You’ve never sounded more relaxed, more relieved to be relaxed – and the soft edges, the familiar refrains, the gentle tones, they’re all windows to that light in you.
Saturday Night is a confident debut from a creator who's best when he seems uncomfortable. So long as he keeps evading his comfort zone, Darcy's songwriting should remain potent for years to come.
Fans of Ought’s signature scintillation might find ‘Saturday Night’ a touch indulgent, but let Darcy off – he’s cleansed the palate in intriguing fashion here.
