Last month we brought you "Lilydale" from Aaron and the Lord and commented that it was goth adjacent. Their latest, "The Darkness," keeps that theme going. This new track is a bit heavier than the previous single, but it's just as brooding. What really what sticks out the most about "The Darkness" is just how heavy and moody the song is. It lands somewhere between grunge and industrial, but quickly lurches away into its own territory. Aaron Perrino may have started off in the 90's with The Sheila Divine, but this is his heaviest song to date. If "Lilydale" had us curious where Aaron and the Lord were headed, "The Darkness" has us rabidly waiting.
You can listen to "The Darkness" below. We are the Darkness. We are the Light is due out in the future. For more on Aaron and the Lord, check out the band on Facebook.
