Wizzarding Promotions & The Cube Microplex presents an uplifting audio/visual psychedelic experience:
“Described by its creators as specializing in "trans-apocalyptic galaxy rock," Darsombra navigates multiple sonic vistas, from drone-fueled doom and twisty progressive rock to lush, ambient psych-pop.”
- James Christopher Monger, allmusic.com
darsombra (Baltimore, Maryland USA) is Brian Daniloski on guitar, vocals, effects pedals, and Ann Everton on synthesizer, vocal, gong, and video. Experienced live, it’s a symbiotic audio-visual show that creates a temporary reality, woven by sight, sound, and movement.
Prolifically touring for well over a decade, Darsombra has performed throughout North America, Asia, and Europe, at music venues, dive bars, house shows, galleries, festivals, city ruins, and storage units, as well as their legendary pop-up generator shows at national monuments or just by 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."
"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."
- 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."
