"'Trans-apocalyptic' psych droners Darsombra are about to hit you up with some seriously weird , perception-expanding atmospherics." - Decibel Magazine
"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.' Moreover, there are moments where they sound truly and genuinely playful in what they do." - The Obelisk
"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." - NOISEY (Vice)
Guitarist Brian Daniloski and video artist / synth player Ann Everton join forces to form a rich, organic sound, and a symbiotic audio-visual performance experience. Audiences can expect a temporary reality to be woven by the sights, sounds, and movements of the project.
Relentlessly DIY touring for over a decade, Darsombra has touched down on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean at music venues, dive bars, house shows, galleries, festivals, yoga studios, and storage units, as well as their legendary pop-up generator shows at national monuments or just on the side of the road.
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."
More reviews of DARSOMBRA:
"If you’re of the belief that sonic resonance can affect those who experience it on a spiritual level, I can only recommend you open your mind as wide as (possible) and go see Darsombra. There are few live acts who so clearly revel in the process of what they’re creating on stage and presenting what they have created. . . it’s hard not to be swept up in that joy as it hits in swells and waves of drone and experimentalist guitar, keys, percussion, vocals, and visuals."
- 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."
