You can’t silence the weird kids.

[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. Dark pop gets a bad rap for being dramatic, but it’s all about being effortlessly cool. It’s also a respite in the world for the weird kids. 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]

Each soundcast will feature popular and up and coming artists who bring that dichtomous feeling of cinematic tragedy and heartbreaking hope to their music. This time:

Dan Deacon / The Internet /
Peaches / Tanlines / Space Captain /
Gener8ion + M.I.A. / Kid Francescoli

DAN DEACON// MEME GENERATOR

People are programmed to accept so little
You are the power source
Your body, your nervous system
Your energy

Don’t be a meme generator. Be a fucking human.

KID FRANCESCOLI// DOES SHE?
PEACHES// LIGHT IN PLACES (FT. EMPRESS STAH)

[Zie] only wrote one book
A dark story of
Love, Alcohol and
A plan that went really bad

I got light in places
You didn’t know it could shine
So much beauty coming out my ass

GENER8ION + M.I.A.// THE NEW INTERNATIONAL SOUND PT. II

The ones that govern me
Ain’t the ones that can power me
It’s the sun and moon
That’s turning me
If I get high it’s burning me
You can’t kill the love in me

And my heart beats slow
But I never get lonely

It was like falling into fiction
