Love Asylum - Darkened Days - Stereo Stickman

Love Asylum Darkened Days


The charismatic sound of Love Asylum reaches poetically provocative new heights, as the long-time duo introduce their first single of 2024.

Featuring an instantly seductive groove akin to the synth-pop and rhythmic warmth of the eighties, Darkened Days sets the mood with confidence and style, before weaving in a notably softer element in the form of the leading voice. Here we’re led through an intoxicating realm of uncertainty, a story ultimately focused on self-improvement, but repeating its title and central reflections in a way that naturally feels quite poignant at this time in our collective journey.

The drum sound is blissful, the crisp production surrounding its lo-fi warmth adding a contemporary twist, with both the melody and story breathing new life into the scene. That balance works well, the nostalgia of sounds reignited by the likes of Stranger Things and beyond intertwined with the depth of these fearlessly vulnerable revelations on a life.

With their fourth album set to release in the coming months, Love Asylum are onto a pathway of intrigue and immersive design right now, and Darkened Days is a beautifully enchanting indication of that.
