I don’t know how Yorkshire based project (how often have I featured something from Yorkshire?! This is a special occasion…) Darkher slipped through the net, but to be quite honest, I’m glad it did. I’m not entirely sure in which category to put Darkher into. I went with dark folk to begin with, but it’s also been listed under ethereal wave and occult rock, to name but a few. I suggest you listen and make up your own mind.
It made a lovely change to browse Last.fm and actually encounter something that I hadn’t heard of before. Jayn H. Wissenberg is the powerful presence behind this mystical project, which, although has it’s own distinct, enchanting emotion behind it, does bring to mind Chelsea Wolfe and Anna Von Hausswolf.
