The Darling Fire: Rituals

Harmoniously mixing aspects of shoegaze, post hardcore, and metal, The Darling Fire prepare for the release their sophomore album, Distortions, expected out on Iodine Recordings. The band features members of Shai Hulud, Further Seems Forever and Rocking Horse Winner, and their almost solemn and mesmerizing sound consists of haunting female vocals and massive instrumentals which are woven together with atmospheric soundscapes.

Jay Maas (Defeater, Title Fight, Bane) produces a razor-sharp output which emphasizes the band's genre fusion and direct songwriting even further.

The band describe standout single, Rituals: "From birth to burial, we follow the ones we love down wicked paths. We haunt each other through life; through moments of love and hate; at times pretending we're fine so as not to worry one another. Each of us have our rituals--things that keep us sane among the insane--walking the line between light and dark."

Rituals is dark, melancholic, and spellbinding, while it is also comes across warmly approachable, and makes for an emotive and intimate listen.
