Darkher is an intriguing, haunting trip through the mind and spirit of UK artist Jayn H. Wissenberg, a charismatic West Yorkshire-based vocalist / songwriter whose powerful, captivating music is characterized by slowly building storm clouds of guitars and haunting, spine-tingling vocals. Creating extraordinarily dark music full of contrasts, including both chilling loneliness and the warmth of hope, the sound of Darkher is veined by both an unsettling atmosphere of encroaching dread and a deep, otherworldly confidence.
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 proves that the fire of great expectations raised by the debut's spark were more than justified. The album features nine distinctive, dynamic and dramatic tracks that are impossible to resist. Songs such as the sternly imploring "Moths", the driving "Wars", with its signature drum march, or the sinister, unfathomable 'Buried' or 'Foregone' may be mentioned as cornerstones of an album that, due to its quality and diversity, bears the potential earmarks of a future classic.
