Ought is a not the band that you’d expect the lead singer to release a solo album sounding like a twangy troubadour. But here we are with Tim Darcy set to release something more consistent with Roy Orbison as opposed to Talking Heads. Saturday Night is set to see the light of day on 2/17/17 via the fine folks at Jagjaguwar. Here’s some more info on the album.

Darcy’s unmistakable, commanding voice and lyrical phrasing are vital to the entirety of Saturday Night. Throughout, he over-enunciates. He makes mantras out of molehills. He whoops and croons, all the while, he presents an evident softness and an accompanying musicality. While there are moments that take their strength in sparseness, Darcy is unafraid to paint in economic technicolor as his wry lyricism floats nimbly upon chorused guitars and the occasional synthetic artifact.
