"The Dardys @ Lit"

It was all poppy, surf-inspired rock with a bit of grunge around the edges. And I know Lance will laugh at that description of his band, The Dardys, who played last night at Lit.

Girls danced. Beer was drunk. And Lit was pretty packed, albeit with a whole lot of people who knew the band and its four members: Lance on drums, Brian on bass and David singing and playing guitar. Jimmy, fourth member, was inexplicably hanging out in the crowd. I thought they sounded a bit like the Pixies, but a more knowledgeable friend responded: "More like the Lemondheads." Fair enough.

The best songs, "Three Over Four," "Don't Want to Get Tired," and the last song, whose name I don't know, all had nice hooks and satisfyingly messy guitar. That last had a sweet buildup/guitar crescendo, and was surprisingly upbeat for a song whose principal lyric is, "We will all die."

When it was over, the band exited the stage, through the crowd — a lack of pretension is definitely Lit's strongpoint. The guy from Coco 66 started spinning a few random dance tunes. Girls swayed. More beer was drunk. Lance admitted he was tired, and sometime later the band, their gear and a crowd of friends stood on the sidewalk outside, waiting to move on. After months of practice, all in all, their first show in New York had gone pretty damn well. - Limewire Music Blog


We have just finished and self-released our debut EP, entitled Stumbles Blackout.



Formed in early 2008 in NYC, the dardys are four best friends who finally got to be in the band of their dreams. Taking influence from sixties band, esp the turtles all the way up to the pixies, they play very immediate pressing pop music. Our minimal music leaves space for the interplay of three singers. Our practice sessions often turn into impromptu parties, with way too many people stopping by, the price to pay for practicing on the lower east side of NYC. We play infectious, memorable music that is as noisy as it is nice.1
