Copenhagen duo Josephine Philip and Ina Lindgreen create soft melodic rock with heavy distortion and eerie chanting
Coming out of the emerging Copenhagen music scene, Danish duo Darkness Falls are the latest offering from well-known electronic producer Trentemøller. Made up of Josephine Philip and Ina Lindgreen, the band makes slow melodic rock full of distorted guitars, synths and eerie vocals. Their haunting sound lurches between 60s pop, rock and post-punk with distorted beats and some chanting along the way. Although they formed in 2009, they have been working on their self-titled four-track debut EP since then with a release date set of March 7th.
