DARKHER - Unveils New Acoustic Song And Video

The UK based one-woman act Darkher made a surprise appearance at this year's digital Redux edition of the trailblazing Roadburn Festival on Friday, 16 April with the exclusive premiere of a brand new video clip featuring an acoustic version of the song "Love's Sudden Death" that will be featured electrified on the forthcoming new full-length which has not been scheduled yet. Darkher is the brainchild of singer, guitarist, composer, lyricist, and producer Jayn Maiven, who founded this solo project in 2012.

"This acoustic version of "Love's Sudden Death" was recorded in the woods of  Hell Hole Rocks in Heptonstall, West Yorkshire at dusk while the rooks were settling in the surrounding trees", tells British artist Jayn Maiven. "The song is a dark romantic ballad taken from Darkher's forthcoming new album, which was heavily inspired by the mood of this ancient landscape and how it reflects the emotions within - dramatic, beautiful, and sometimes bleak."

Darkher released a self-titled debut EP in 2013. The dark and melancholic yet also massively heavy sound on Darkher and Jayn's distinct vocals quickly caused a loud buzz particularly in the doom scene and gained her a record deal, with the following EP The Kingdom Field already appearing on Prophecy Productions. Celebrated live performances at the prestigious Roadburn Festival, Tilburg, The Netherlands and Prophecy Fest in the Cave of Balve, Germany led to high anticipation for Darkher's debut album, which was released under the name Realms in 2016. Watch the new video "Love's Sudden Death" in the player below. It was filmed by Jayn Maiven and R. Shooter and edited by Jayn Maiven. Link
