A PROJECTION – Darwin’s Eden

A Projection are a post-punk/darkwave act from Stockholm, who signed to Metropolis Records in 2019 for the release of their well received third album, ‘Section’. Inspired by dark post-punk/proto-goth acts such as The Cure, Sisters Of Mercy and Joy Division along with the electronica of Depeche Mode, the band are known for their compelling and dynamic live shows.

‘Darwin’s Eden’ is a brand new single by the quartet and sees them more fully embracing the electronic realm, placing themselves in the intersection between the ‘80s synth pop and the darkwave hit lists of 2021.

The song also sports a classy video directed by Nicklas Lindahl at Nilfilm. Filmed in an old church and a natural history museum, with candlelit visuals that immediately evince a bloodcurdling sense of foreboding, this sense of dread is augmented musically by the baroque romance of an icy, organ-like keyboard motif in tandem with vampiric lyrics and crooning vocals set amongst the gothic backdrop.

A Projection are currently preparing their fourth album.
