Yutaru Events Present Darcie
Darcie is the solo project of Manchester based multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter Zigi Porter, a creation of dreamy lo-fi soul pop. Her misty tones blend seamlessly with warm harmonies that float over industrial drums and chorus heavy instrumentation. Combined with Monsieur Mingles unique illustrations, Darcie has come to have a subtle yet coy feel.
Musically, she draws on the DIY feel of artists such as Rex Orange County and Steve Lacy, alongside the soulful influences of high flying female artists Jorja Smith and SZA. Darcie also incorporates the likes of Billie Eilish, Dua Lipa and Glass Animals into her music, creating a warm blend of pop and soul- a distinctive sound.
Various projects include her work being featured on Mahogany Sessions and Sofar Sounds, plus radio appearances on BBC Radio Manchester. Tom Robinson dubbing her single ‘Mango’ as “an object lesson in tight memorable songwriting” after her place on the Glastonbury Emerging Talent longlist.
