Tim Darcy is a Canada-based songwriter, guitarist, and singer with an idiosyncratic delivery that can evoke a young David Byrne or Lou Reed. Known as leader of the high-intensity indie rock band Ought, he's also released more personal solo material. Going by Tim Beeler at the time (his birth surname), the Arizona-born musician formed Ought in Montreal in 2011 with keyboardist Matt May, bassist Ben Stidworthy, and drummer/violinist Tim Keen. Taking heavy cues from their city's thriving scene of underground politics, loft parties, and D.I.Y. culture, the band melded unlikely influences from both high-energy mid-'90s emo bands and airy, early college rock acts like the Feelies and Talking Heads. The bandmembers all lived together in a shared apartment/practice space, self-recording their first EP, New Calm, in 2012.
