Description

Darsombra is a cinematic conceptual rock band from Baltimore, Maryland, USA. Featuring composer Brian Daniloski on guitar, bass, and vocals, and filmmaker Ann Everton on synth, vocals, percussion, and projections, Darsombra is internationally known for walking the line between glam-prog-psych-stoner metal and site-specific installation performance art. Live, their carefully crafted songs and videos create a hallucinogenic synesthesia for the audience, as Everton and Daniloski build a temporary reality from sound, sight, and movement.


But beyond their notoriously psychedelic stage shows, they have a strikingly distinctive and unique sound, which runs the gamut from minimal pulsating drone soundscapes, to intricately layered album-length psych/metal opuses, to glam/prog Krautrock-esque tracks drenched with field recordings. Expect cosmic guitar solos and interweaving riffs, blissed-out synth sequences and bass lines, and emotive whacks of a gong or tolls of bells peppered throughout their work, in addition to vocal stylings that range from wordless choral harmonies to percussive chants, grunts, and word-salad lyrics. These sonic elements combine to conjure seamless, evocative music, communicating a sense of emotion, narrative, or ideas that are all entirely subjective for the listener—this is music for the imagination. Darsombra calls their sound "trans-apocalyptic galaxy rock": dynamic, kaleidoscopic music for people transitioning through endtimes and dreaming of space.

In 1998, Darsombra was initially conceived as SUCKPiG, Daniloski’s solo side project to his renowned sludge metal band, Meatjack. In 2005, he began touring under the new name Darsombra. In 2010, Darsombra became a two-piece with the addition of video artist Ann Everton. By 2013, Ann had joined Brian as a musician, performer, and composer, as well as continuing to produce and project her mind-bending video tracks composed exclusively for each song.

Prolifically touring for well over a decade, Darsombra has performed in 48 states and 20 countries throughout North America, Asia, and Europe, at music venues, festivals, DIY spaces, house shows, galleries, city ruins, dive bars, cultural centers, record stores, coffee shops, and parks—not to mention their legendary pop-up generator shows at national monuments and forests, or just by the side of the road. No matter where they perform, the most common responses a Darsombra show elicits are, “I didn’t know what to expect, but that was awesome”, “I’ve never seen anything like that before”, and “it was like an acid trip, but without the acid."

Following releases on labels in the US, Europe, and Asia, such as At A Loss (US), Public Guilt (US), Exile On Mainstream (Germany), Translation Loss (US), Dogma Artistic Guerrilla (Malaysia), and Noise Bombing (Indonesia), Darsombra's latest double album "Dumesday Book" was released on their own label, Pnictogen Records. Darsombra also manages a robust YouTube channel, complete with videos of their shows, their live projections, music videos, livestreamed shows, and episodes of Darsombra TV—the ongoing chronicles of their adventures at large. A true cottage industry DIY band, self producing their music and videos and booking their own tours globally, Darsombra brings a stadium show in a cargo van or a handful of suitcases.
