Portland-based octet Typhoon explores the fear of losing memory in their new single “Darker” where they blend eerie elements of dark rock with post-pop rhythm, creating a hauntingly dreamy soundscape. Mostly fueled by strings, “Darker” is a deceivingly chill track that dissects hefty existential themes. Play below:

The track is from the band’s upcoming album Offerings, which will be out on January 12th and tells the story of a fictional character who starts losing his memory and identity. ”I’ve always been preoccupied with memory, losing memory, and trying to recapture memory. I wanted to explore the questions: What does a person become if they don’t know where they came from? What is the essential quality of the person if you strip away all memory?” explained singer/songwriter Kyle Morton.

Typhoon will also start hitting the road next month:
