100s + 1000s are elated to announce the sophomore EP from Melbourne/Naarm rising star D’Arcy Spiller – ‘Disarray’ is out Friday 6 August. Premiered overnight by Richard Kingsmill on triple j, D’Arcy Spiller today shares the EP’s showstopper K Karma, with a hypnotic video directed by Madeleine Purdy (Flowerkid, Gordi) and announces her debut headline tour in August.
K Karma could not come at a more pertinent time, with her home state undergoing its fourth Covid lockdown in 14 months, D’Arcy Spiller releases a searing observation on how ignorance has a way of coming back to bite us. Written amid the mayhem of 2020, D’Arcy took pause and reflected on our historic treatment of our planet and refusal to change our destructive ways, coming to the conclusion that Mother Nature had finally had enough.
‘Karma’s coming for us / we’re running but she’s catching up.’
Co-written with Ali Barter and Holy Holy’s Oscar Dawson, K Karma cements D’Arcy status as one to watch in 2021. With K Karma she stands centre stage, in front of a hefty production, offering one of her most sophisticated and catchy tracks to date.
D’Arcy first burst into our hearts in 2019 with her crushing debut single Cry All Night which peaked at #9 on triple j’s Unearthed Chart. In 2020 she released her debut EP ‘Little Demons’ which featured powerful follow up Wildfire, closely followed by the spine tingling Deep Black Sea ,which earned her triple j Unearthed Feature artist and an add to rotation at triple j.
In 2021, D’Arcy came back swinging with her new single Wolf Blood which was added to rotation at triple j and saw international airtime on Amazing Radio (UK). The track exploded on streaming platforms, seeing cross-genre playlist additions to playlists like Spotify’s The New Alt which has over 1 million subscribers, and securing D’Arcy a loyal fanbase of listeners worldwide and culminating in a sold-out hometown (Naarm) show.
Forthcoming EP ‘Disarray’ is a peak into the “hidden depths of her inner self”, as D’Arcy explains. Sometimes upbeat, sometimes quite dark, the EP is an honest and authentic reflection of the times we live in, as uncomfortable as that might be.
EP closer, K Karma is a song about uncomfortable truths, packaged in an absolute belter from the Melbourne songwriter. D’Arcy will take her new material on tour this August, with shows in Brisbane, Castlemaine, Sydney, and Melbourne.
