It’s been a hot minute since SIMGE last got a chance to feature Brooklyn-based rockers Darkwing, but today not only are they back with a new single, “Ignorant Ghost,” they’re also announcing their signing to our sister label Good Eye Records.
The dark atmosphere of the track rides winding guitars as Richard Rogers and Lyzi Wakefield’s vocals intertwine not unlike some of the best from Sonic Youth.
“I was seeing this girl and then she ghosted me,” explains Rogers. “It was impressive actually. So I was feeling bad about that and wrote this song as a sort of healing therapy, like I told myself that I got away from her and not the other way around. These kinds of songs are almost automatic responses to emotional discomfort. Reflex.”
