The Danish duo Darkness Falls is a new alternative rock duo right from the centre of the emerging Copenhagen music scene, a collaboration between Josephine Philip (vocals, keyboards) and Ina Lindgreen (guitar, bass). Their sound is rooted in rock tradition, with elements of post punk, distant beats, and chanting, textured productions wrapped up with a great passion for classic 60s twang guitar sounds.
A beautiful mixture of charming pop and melancholy, this is feel good music for 2011 and beyond. Produced by Trentemøller these 4 tracks are a spellbinding taste of things to come. The combination of Trentemøller‘s glistening production and the unique, heartfelt music of Darkness Falls is sure to uplift and inspire.
‚Noise On The Line‘ blends sweetly slow tones and laid-back filmic qualities with Josephine‘s haunting vocals, while in comparison the B-movie inspired ‚Hey!‘ is a more lively affair. Centered on a foreboding lyric caught up amongst an awesome whirlwind of guitar and synths, with an almost epic arrangement despite the song‘s under 4 minute playtime.
Dubbed and ethereal, ‚Strangers Coming‘ is a fine example of the depth in sound and quality of songwriting and production Darkness Falls have to offer. The solemn modern ballad slowly builds and climbs to a spooky conclusion.
Finally the powerful echoes of ‚Paradise Trilogy II‘ swathe us in deep guitars and heavenly sung passages, conjuring images of mystical lands and forgotten times. The debut EP “Darkness Falls” will be accompanied by a brilliant video for “Hey!”.
