Darkness Falls / Night Games
Trembling echoes calling my name / Come and join me for night games.
Danish pop-noir duo Darkness Falls serve up a deeply enticing torch song for this, their fourth - and arguably most memorable - single from hugely accomplished sophomore album 'Dance And Cry'. On top of the original album track and an instrumental that allows listeners to revel in the production’s widescreen cinematic feel, the package boasts remixes from Kasper Bjørke, Shinobi and an all-new single version.
The latter replaces the lush layers of the original with dancing, picked synths before building to a stirring climax where the seductive, multitracked vocals of Josephine Philip harmonise resoundingly and echo each other.
Kasper Bjørke, the duo’s compatriot, bases the tune around a circling guitar motif and burred slow-mo beat, creating a real sense of tension and drama, while the Shinobi remix by Nexus foregrounds the rich vocals before overwhelming you with a super-saturated chorus, a contrapuntal keyboard line and a syncopated, low-slung beat.
