Darkher share a music video for acoustic version of her new song »Love’s Sudden Death«.
Recorded in the woods of Hell Hole Rocks in Heptonstall at dusk, as the Rooks were settling in the surrounding trees.
The song is a dark romantic ballad taken from the forthcoming album, which was heavily inspired by the mood of the ancient landscape and how it reflects the emotions within – dramatic, beautiful and sometimes bleak.
The video was premiered on Roadburns Redux edition on April 16th, 2021. Filmed by Darkher and R. Shooter, edited by Darkher.
Darkher is a powerful, haunting trip through the mind and spirit of UK artist J.Maiven, a West Yorkshire-based vocalist and composer whose self produced, captivating music is characterised by doom-laden riffs, haunting, spine-tingling vocals, emotion-drenched songs and layers of atmosphere. Creating extraordinarily evocative music full of contrasts, including both chilling loneliness and the warmth of hope. The sound of Darkher has been described as “ghostly transmissions that sound like they were delivered by lost souls in the dead of night”.
Darkher’s first release, »The Kingdom Field« EP (2014), epitomized her broodingly intense music and created a stir across scenes, being hailed as “beautiful, teeth-edging horror” and “utterly brilliant”. Her debut album, »Realms«, impressively proved that the fire of great expectations raised by the debut’s spark were more than justified. Lyrically, »Realms« mirrors the ominous, awe-inspiring character of the music; the tales on the album lie somewhere between this sphere and the unseen worlds before and beyond.
The forthcoming full-length album is due for release in 2021 via Prophecy Productions.
