Since their formation in 2012, Darcy Malone and The Tangle has established its reputation as one of New Orleans’ upcoming live acts known for regularly playing the city’s legendary venues such as Tipitina’s as well as New Orleans Jazz Fest and French Quarter Fest. Front woman Darcy Malone is daughter of Dave Malone of the legendary Southern rock band, The Radiators. Her powerful vocal performances have been compared to the likes of sixties' soul legends Ronnie Spector and Darlene Love.
Their 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," to critical acclaim from the Louisiana press. 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 the legendary Studio In The Country, Bogalusa, LA. Their new record was produced by Ben Mumphrey (The Pixies, Anders Osborne, The Breeders) as well as mixed by Richard Dodd (Tom Petty's Wildflowers, Dixie Chicks' Not Ready to Make Nice).
The band continues to receive rave reviews for their electrifying charismatic live performances in Louisiana and beyond. They have played alongside New Orleans greats including George Porter Jr, Leo Nocentelli, The Radiators, Bonerama, Honey Island Swamp Band and Raw Oyster Cult. The band opened for the Rebirth Brass Band in NYC and The Subdudes earlier this summer.
