bio

 

Darsombra is trans-apocalyptic galaxy rock from Baltimore, MD. Guitarist Brian Daniloski and video artist/synth player Ann Everton join forces to form a rich, organic sound, and an expansive, symbiotic, audio-visual performance experience.

Following releases on At A Loss, Public Guilt, and Exile on Mainstream, Darsombra most recently worked with Translation Loss and Sonic Meditations for their 2016 release, "Polyvision."

Touring relentlessly for over 10 years, Darsombra has touched down on both sides of the Atlantic at music venues, dive bars, house shows, galleries, eateries, festivals, burns, yoga studios, storage units, national monuments, and on the side of the road.

". . .Where so much of drone/noise is hell-bent on post-apocalyptic desolation, the creation of all-gray spaces, Darsombra offer a full spectrum of sonic color across Polyvision. . . . Polyvision feels unafraid to embrace joy as it moves through its complex and ritualized-feeling soundscapes."
- JJ Koczan - The Obelisk

". . . the perfect soundtrack to being transported either bodily or mentally to another world, to be immersed into another culture, another civilization . . . sounds and experiences that could be described as beyond this world."
- Luke Hayhurst - Destructive Music

". . . the sound of a slow ascension towards a higher elevation, if not a higher state of consciousness."
- Ray Van Horn, Jr. - Blabbermouth

"Despite their clear psych trappings and nods to the likes of Hawkwind and Magma, Darsombra's sound is modern and tuned-in, a perfectly interlocked web of visuals and electronic sounds, exploratory and grasping toward transcendence."
Matthew Moyer - Orlando Weekly

"With a unique sonic blueprint, Darsombra achieve the sheer transcendence and intensity that most drone acts can only dream of with an enviable effortlessness . . . aims skyward, reaching for a celestial warmth, while skillfully implying a myriad of other textures and emotions en route. The sheer evocative power of the music is huge . . . feels like a psyched-out soundtrack to the Earth’s formation and evolution of complex life in slow motion – majestic and utterly vast."
- George Leeming - The Sleeping Shaman

"I encourage you to clap on a pair of headphones, close your eyes, and let Darsombra coax you away into a kinder, brighter, trippier plane of existence."
