Darsombra, the pseudonym of Baltimore, MD guitarist Brian Daniloski, inhabits the! nether regions of 21st century experimental music where traditions as disparate as doom rock, musique concrete, psychedelic, ambient, noise and neoclassical merge into a seamless continuum of sound. From monolithic and dense to minimal and shimmering, Darsombra explores the contrasts between light and darkness, the beautiful and grotesque.
Darsombra, Daniloski's extensive music career has included making music and abundant touring with Meatjack (of which he was a founding member), Trephine, Keelhaul, Ala Muerte and his newest project Ambuvega, also sharing stages with the likes of High on Fire, Floor, Rwake, Black Cobra etc..
"There's a great deal of melancholic, mesmeric beauty in Darsombra's isolationist grinding and evil ambient shimmer” (Aquarius Records)
Conny Ochs writes raw love songs. Dark and wild, simple yet intense, singing along to the tune of his black telecaster and one foot stomping the ground. Co! n-O´s first recordings of his songs now appear in the we! b and on the first shows he plays when he would not be fronting the halle/berlin based band BABY UNIVERSAL. Influenced by such troubadourettes and troubadours as PJj Harvey, Scout Niblett, Jeff Buckley or Nick Drake he turns on to his mystic saloon noir symbolistic version of rock´n roll, balladeers and dark folk, tripping further with drawings and picturebooks that surely illustrate his music.
