Led by dual lead vocalists Oliver Hill and Eliza Bagg, this short-lived group released two albums of richly harmonic, cinematic art rock before going their separate ways, with Hill focusing on his psych-rock band Dustrider and Bagg offering up the solo project Lisel. This 2016 debut combined high drama, whimsy, and sadness in a way that's indebted to Sgt. Pepper but just as likely to recall film directors like Michel Gondry or David Lynch.
D'Arby let his ample talents run amok on his ambitious, sprawling, and sometimes baffling second album. Although flawed and challenging, it succeeds more often than not, reminding listeners what a curious musical powerhouse he is.
