Darkswoon is an electronic band from Portland, OR with elemental post-punk roots, and musical moments bordering on dream pop to darkwave. Originating as the bedroom project and primary creative outlet of composer Jana Cushman, Darkswoon has since evolved into an energetic trio, with Cushman crooning on vocals and guitar, Rachel Ellis stacking the electronic backbone of danceable beats and haunting synth lines, and all of it punctuated by the intelligent, rhythmic bass lines of Andrew Michael Potter. The band evokes old school goth and post-punk of early 4AD label darlings, but maintains a modern edge and originality.

Their first full length album, ‘Bind’, was released earlier this year on Icy Cold Records, an independent label in cooperation with Manic Depression Records, on all formats including a limited edition vinyl.  The album continues to collect badges of approval and gain radio time internationally.
