Darsombra describe themselves as "trans-apocalyptic galaxy rock, for dreamers and schemers and those seeking an audio-visual journey," which, yeah, makes sense. The duo—guitarist/vocalist Brian Daniloski and Ann Everton, who handles synthesizer, gong, and vocals—play like they were separated at birth; their interpretation of psych rock is gentle, almost soothing, built on the quiet ebb and flow of droning synth, circuitous riffs, and mutual creative understanding.

They've been mining these galactic depths onstage and off for over a decade, in their native Maryland and far beyond. Now, they're floating back down to each once more to bestow the celestial drift that is their new album Polyvision upon us (via Translation Loss, who will let Polyvision loose from its moorings on September 9).
