New release - Fallout 4

Darkroom's new album Fallout 4 releases on August 25th, on CD and for download/streaming, on the Expert Sleepers label.

Fallout 4 goes back to the original Fallout inspirations, and a darker aesthetic. The soundscape is stark, open, at times ragged and jarring while at other times hauntingly beautiful. The album contains three extended pieces. The first two - It’s Clear From The Air and Qaanaaq - derive from the last performance of Darkroom’s 2012 tour: even after most of the audience had left, the band kept on playing into the night as the inspirational flow was so strong. Reviewing extensive recordings from rehearsals and the rest of the tour, one additional piece - Tuesdays Ghost - stood out for its controlled slow drone build and primal rhythmic electronic energy.
