D’Arcy Spiller communes with her shadow self on stunning new EP, Disarray. During lockdown last year, Melbourne artist D’Arcy Spiller started having dreams. Different dreams. Like one where her mum was drowning and when she called her up the next morning, Spiller discovered her mum had been having water problems around the house. As the worldwide shutdown continued, and D’Arcy was confined to her tiny inner-city apartment alone, these empathic kinds of things kept happening more and more. With no outside world to roam around, explore and connect with, Spiller started to look within, investigating the hidden depths of her inner self. With Disarray, Spiller announces herself as an artist unafraid to take risks and push the boundaries of her sound into challenging and sometimes uncomfortable places. The results are flawless, thrilling and endlessly rewarding. Balancing light with dark, beautiful with harsh, D’Arcy’s musical world reflects her personal one.
Co-Produced and mixed by Geoff Swan (Charli XCX, Caroline Polachek, daine), K Karma Written with Oscar Dawson (Holy Holy) and Ali Barter. D’Arcy sold out her first full band headline show on March 10 at Brunswick Ballroom (200cap) as part of Brunswick Music Festival and has upcoming shows with Jarryd James, at Noosa Outback Festival, Uplift Festival and Hastings Foreshore along with an Australian East Coast headline tour in August supporting the release of Disarray.

Willaris. K delivers new EP ‘LUSTRE’ along with lead single ‘DETACH’ – Separation: physical, metaphysical; emotional, intellectual. Without knowing what it is that binds us, the process of separation - detachment - can be excruciatingly painful. Equally, with the right internal alignment, it can be infinitely joyous. Willaris. K’s latest offering “DETACH” journeys through both the pain and the joy in a fluid and euphoric instrumental dance anthem.
Embracing vast, empty sonic spaces requires restraint and a certain confidence that is less prevalent in new artists, so tempting is it for them to demonstrate everything they can do all at once. However, wall-to-wall sound goes against Willaris. K’s intentions, and creating moments to catch your breath, reflect or draft a text to an ex are just as important as the ones to exalt, dance and forget.
Expected release date: April 3rd, 2020
