Lovely Dark is a rock band from Minneapolis that plays loud, pretty music about physics and witches.
"There’s a certain wilderness about Lovely Dark that no other band captures, and you’ll grow hungry for it in its absence. The closest thing to it I’ve found is the music of Jesca Hoop and Faun Fables — these are artists whose music has a certain timeless quality to it. Sure, it’s western music, but it feels unearthed rather than created. ... The rhythms are loud. There are beefy, beastly grooves here that you simply do not get in bands with similar songwriting styles. And it really wasn’t until New Born that Lovely Dark’s alchemy really comes into focus: the mix of old-school folk that captures the spirit of the woods and the technically-minded steam-powered rock-n-roll. It’s loud but precise. It’s rough but spiritual." - Earbuddy
