A DKOXY6 (1)
[DARK OXYGEN] is a periodic series at the Sights and Sounds where I collect a dark star explosion of the best dark indietronica out there. A lot of people can’t breathe in the black hole spaces that moody, sexual, slightly deranged and aspirational pop creates; but if you’re as big a fan of the genre as I am, you know dark pop can replace the air you breathe, like [DARK OXYGEN]

Dark pop gets a bad rap for being dramatic, but it’s all about being effortlessly cool. Especially in how it tells stories of being. So each soundcast will feature popular and up and coming artists who bring that dichtomous feeling of cinematic tragedy and heartbreaking hope to their music. All tied together with a punch/smattering to the heart of images, music and chevére videos. This time I feature:

FLUME/ ASTR/ LOREEN
POGO / TAME IMPALA
FAKEAR / JOSEF SALVAT

FLUME// SOME MINDS (FT. ANDREW WYATT)

Here I pass the day in a most peculiar way
Watching ships out on the bay
and I swallow so hard
Am I too weak to fight?
SOME MINDS are better kept apart

TAME IMPALA// CAUSE I’M A MAN
RONE//ACID REFLUX

Each fucking doubt I make, unleash a cry
I’m just pathetic
That’s the reason why
In desperation, all that you can do is
Ask me why
But I have no voice if I don’t speak my mind
My weakness is the source of all my pride
I’ll tell you why

ASTR//ACTIVATE ME
LOREEN// PAPER LIGHT REVISITED

Activate activate activate me
Don’t wanna resist
It’s already written, it’s in your eyes
So come and tell me what’s on your mind
Your hesitation’s leaving me so cold


_____________________________

I need your light
I’ve been chased
To a stormy place
Shooting up to the sky
We’re born to be higher
Higher
We’re born to be higher

JOSEF SALVAT// TIL I FOUND YOU

I’ve done things I’m not proud of,
Done things just to fit into a crowd
I thought I belonged to
Just ghosts to show
You are whatever gets you through
And a darker light this you can’t ever know
I’ve spent my life wondering through a wilderness
Doomed to watch my youth slip on its grave
