Proudly Bringing Boston the Best Dark Post-Punk, Goth, and Darkwave from All Over the World.
SECRET SHAME (NC)
Some people like to make music — others have to. That’s how Lena, the singer of Asheville deathrock band Secret Shame, explains the band’s 2016 beginnings: “If I couldn’t sing or play music, I would tear my skin off.” That same clenching expression comes through on the band’s emotionally driven debut full-length Dark Synthetics.
Shanghai Beach (NYC)
An obsession with synthesizers, drum machines, and poetry about a dystopian future.
Dark Synth Pop
Un Hombre Solo (NYC)
Balancing a performative flair for the dramatic with the frantic EBM charge of the likes of Dive and Nitzer Ebb, this should be a set worth witnessing.
Pilgrims of Yearning (Boston)
Chilean-Colombian dark post punk band based in Boston, Massachusetts.
From the veiny rivers of melancholy to the craggy rocks of disturbance, from the glaciated deserts of bleakness to the vast oceans of longing, from the lightless chasms of despair to the highest peaks piercing a bright sky – you can’t put your finger on an emotional map and find certainty about the place the music of Golden Apes will bring you to.
Twin Tribes (TX)
Dark melodic sounds, synthezisers, lyrics about the undead and parallel universes.
Dead Wax Records (Spain)
Manic Depression Records (France)
Young & Cold Records (Germany)
Negative Gain (USA)
Firmly rooted in the Goth Rock tradition of bands like The Wake, Nosferatu, and The Fields of the Nephilim, Sonsombre evokes the sound and feel of the early 90’s second wave.
