Darkswoon is an electronic shoegaze band from Portland, OR. Originating as the bedroom project and primary creative outlet of Jana Cushman, Darkswoon has since evolved into an energetic trio, with Cushman crooning on vocals and guitar, Rachel Ellis stacking the electronic backbone of danceable beats and haunting synth lines, and all of it punctuated by the intelligent, rhythmic bass lines of Andrew Michael Potter. The band evokes old school goth and post punk of early 4AD label darlings, but maintains a modern edge and originality.
Their first full length album Bind was released February 2019 on Icy Cold Records, an independent label in cooperation with Manic Depression Records. The band can also be heard on the soundtrack for the newly released indie film ‘My Summer As A Goth’.
