Josephine Philip and Ina Lindgreen, the two artists that form Darkness Falls, have been inspired by the likes of  The Jesus and Mary Chain, Cocteau Twins, Kate Bush and Nite Jewel, and the result is an astonishgly huge album of noir-pop and midnight electronica. The pair use choral, R&B and pop vocals to entice you, but with vast chasms of synth, head-demolishing beats and parasitic earworms, there's definitely a sinister facet to the band. That combination of light and dark, of complex and simple, is what makes their new record so fascinating, and plants them at the vanguard of a wave of atmospheric electro-pop emerging from the continent.

The artwork has been created by Peter Funch, photographer/artist based in NYC. Production is from the band, with help from Adrian Aurelius (The Raveonettes), Lasse Martinussen (Rosemary) and Anders Rhedin (Dinner).

Dance And Cry will be released 30 March on hfn music. You can pre-order the album here.
