Darkswoon is an electronic band from Portland, OR with elemental post-punk roots, and musical moments bordering on dream pop to darkwave. Originating as the bedroom project and primary creative outlet of composer Jana Cushman, Darkswoon has since evolved into an energetic trio, with Cushman on vocals and guitar, Rachel Ellis stacking the electronic backbone and haunting synth lines, and all of it punctuated by the intelligent bass lines of Andrew Michael Potter. The band evokes old school goth and post-punk of early 4AD label darlings while maintaining a modern edge and originality.
Their first full length album, ‘Bind', was released in 2019 on Icy Cold Records, an independent label in cooperation with Manic Depression Records, on limited edition vinyl. Darkswoon is currently recording their sophomore LP with plans to release later this year.
