Darsombra return to melt faces and expand minds at Stardust Video & Coffee


  • Michel Anderson
For underground and weirdo music enthusiasts, early February in Florida is the mooooost wonderful time of the yeaaaaar, as practitioners par excellence of said sonic weirdness migrate south for the annual and epochal International Noise Conference in Miami. And few are as weird (and epochal) as Baltimorean psych-freak ensemble Darsombra. Brian Daniloski and Ann Everton are like a beam of light going straight into your skull, not so much “noise” as a distillation of psychedelia down to the most wigged-out essentials. Darsombra are a two-person Hawkwind, a hypnotic explosion of weird lighting, Tony Iommi guitar, Rick Wakeman (OK, not really) synths, and fluid tandem body and hair movement that will fry your little optical nerves and all the cerebral tissue attached. Get ready to squeegee that third eye.
