Darcy Louch, The Interview Series.

Words By Joey Rochert.

Hello, Darcy, Let’s talk about your new EP, ‘{re}defining’, what is the meaning? 

So the EP is a collection of songs that all mean something different to me personally, and each song has a different theme. The overall meaning of the EP is that I am ‘re-defining’ my outlook and using my music to do that! 

Which artists in the current industry inspire you the most?

I love listening to Tones & I – I tend to sing a lot of her music in my gigs! I also am really inspired by an American artist called Teddy Swims who I was lucky enough to see in concert this year and he really inspires me firstly with his music, which I love, but also with his attitude to being a performer! I guess I’d also say that I am inspired by Harry Style’s performances – he is so at home on stage and seems so confident, which is something I’d love to be!

What is the best thing about being a musician in 2022?

Everything is online! So I guess for artists that means that things are more accessible and there are a lot of online opportunities for artists that there might not have been before social media. Social media means that artists are in a much better position to be independent than they may have been before.

Is there a certain place you often go to write? E.g a certain room, or environment? 

Not really – I usually have random ideas pop into my head which I write down in my notes app on my phone, so that could be literally anywhere! But if I am focusing on writing, then I sit at my desk at my PC. So I guess it depends!

What is your first memory of music? 

I’m not sure exactly, but I remember having a Walkman CD player when I was younger that I really loved and would listen to all kinds of music on! I would also say listening to music in the car has always been something that I love and really enjoy, and can remember doing from a really young age.
