For Immediate Release:
November 19, 2022 – San Antonio-based trio, In A Darkened Room have just unveiled the video for their new single, “Sleep Again”. The track appears on the forthcoming LP, ‘Sorrows’ due out in early December.
Pulling from diverse influences, including David Bowie, Killing Joke, and The Cure, Duron’s weighty guitar riffs and sonorous baritone vibrate your ribcage with dark and dreary melancholia. (Imagine if Edgar Allan Poe had decided to listen to a lot of Lebanon Hanover.)
“Sleep Again is a story about my experiences with night terrors and sleep paralysis,” says Duron. “I had a string of nightmares that featured a recurring female entity that seemingly had fun tormenting me over a series of days causing me to question what was real and what wasn’t. Feeling and hearing sensations without the ability to move was a surreal experience.”
The video is illustrated with the DIY eerie clip directed by Darkened Room Productions. Bringing to mind filmmaker Maya Deren’s Meshes of the Afternoon, the video depicts the creepy sleep paralysis demon and the havoc she hath wrought.
