Singles and EPs
Originating out of the tech-driven mist of the Emerald City, a city in constant limbo between digital futurism and watery introspection, Darksoft naturally materializes as a half cyber-auteur, half lo-fi indie poet; a sensitive mastermind poised to haunt your digital and emotional mainframes. Lush with infectious melodic progressions, 90’s rock undertones, and deftly executed vocals, Darksoft embraces the aesthetic of alternative pop-rock anthems. As a kid who grew up with a software company in his basement (in a house surrounded by evergreens) while grunge ruled the streets, Darksoft reveals his roots in this in-between. Both his full-length albums, Brain (2018), and Meltdown (2020) are communicated through the language of computer viruses, algorithms, and human emotion pure enough to pass the Turing Test. In this concept-driven project, every song is named after an infamous computer virus, like Heartbleed, Mydoom, Code Red, ILOVEYOU, and others.
