Dark Rooms
Dark Rooms
Dark Rooms is the name that Daniel Hart conjured up after years of touring and recording with bands like St. Vincent, Other Lives, The Rosebuds, Broken Social Scene, John Vanderslice, and The Polyphonic Spree. He became obsessed with photography, and wrote songs honoring that obsession. The band formed in Dallas, Texas, and now resides in Los Angeles, California.

Dark Rooms makes music influenced by their heroes, from Sigur Rós, to Four Tet, to Zapp, to The Delfonics.

Dark Rooms released a self-titled debut album in 2013. Its songs have been played on KCRW, KXT, The Adventure Club and various other radio stations and programs around the world. The band has just finished a second album, which will be released in August 2017.

Dark Rooms’ new song “I Get Overwhelmed” is featured in A24’s “A Ghost Story”, coming to theaters this July. Dark Rooms will be touring the US and Europe this fall in conjunction with the release of the film and their new album.
The Father Costume
The Father Costume
The Father Costume is a pop band from Chicago. Aspects of Rock and Roll, 80’s dance, and atmospheric psychedelia are shuffled in service of the particular lyrics of each song. Cymbals are often implied, characters are often at work or apologizing, and guitars and synths are used because stained glass is too creepy and expensive.
