Darkswoon: Human Faults

Human Faults by Portland-based trio, Darkswoon, was originally written for the indie film My Summer As A Goth, but then found its proper home as a standout track on the band's latest album, BIND.

"Human Faults is about a dark romance, being attracted to what wounds you," the song's creator, Jana Cushman explains. "I was working on the film as the original score composer and had been tasked with writing a song for the film. Human Faults took on many shapes before it materialized into it's current form. In the end, I liked it so much I didn't want to give it away to a soundtrack so it became the front running single off Darkswoon's debut LP."

Like many notable underground bands, Darkswoon began as a bedroom project by Cushman, and later evolved into a full band with the addition of Rachel Ellis on synths and beats, and Andrew Michael Potter on bass, as Jana helms the vocals, guitar, synths and beats. The group's sound lies mainly on dark synthpop with well woven elements from post punk, time tested dreampop and shopegaze, and gothic pop, ultimately translating into something very inviting.

The song comes with a haunting black and white visual directed by fellow dark Portland act, We Are Parasols.

BIND, Darkswoon's most realized creation thus far, is out through Icy Cold Records in cooperation with Manic Depression Records.
