Darcy Malone & The Tangle Swings Through Proud Larrys’ August 23

Big Easy soulful indie rockers, Darcy Malone and The Tangle’s latest release is a four track EP called Make Me Over, which features their new single “Time To Be Free.” The record is a fresher and bolder continuation of their bigger than life sound, which was first heard last year when they released their debut album, Still Life. Once again, the band effectively combines their eclectic influences of New Orleans funk, soul, pop and rock into four distinct and catchy songs recorded at legendary Louisiana recording mecca Studio In The Country.

The EP’s title, Make Me Over, is a reference to the band’s journey over the past twelve months, which includes a revised line up with the addition of lead guitarist John Paul Carmody. He is one of the few performers in the world that have won back-to back weeks at the Apollo Theater’s legendary amateur night. Carmody has played alongside well-known New Orleans’ musicians including South Jones, Papa Mali as well as Johnny Sketch and The Dirty Notes. The record also pertains to lead singer Darcy Malone’s own personal makeover, which involved embarking on a weight loss program that led to her losing 68 pounds.

“All of these songs tell a story of where we are,” says Malone. “We are the newest version of ourselves, which is what we are trying to be.”

The EP’s first single Time To Be Free,” is a powerful soul, rock and gospel anthem, which exemplifies the band’s unique wall of sound. Etta James, Tina Turner, and Janis Joplin can be heard in Darcy Malone’s heartfelt and soaring vocal performance as she sings about undergoing a journey of change that ultimately leads to self-acceptance. Billy Schell’s fierce drum riff fires off the EP’s title track Make Me Over,” a catchy funky rock song, which transitions back and forth from samba to funk. You’ll See,” is a soulful pop song, which further builds on the theme of self-acceptance. Meanwhile, guitarist Chris Boye lends lead vocals on Never Wanna See You Alone,” which is his self-penned tribute to New York’s 80’s music scene including legends Debbie Harry, Television and Talking Heads.
