Darkroom Data

Indie // Faithlegg, Waterford

'Experimental Irish Brazilian duo Darkroom Data's new single "Fall With You" finds them blending retro pop aesthetics and futuristic R&B. ' - EARMILK

Darkroom Data are an indie electro pop duo, comprising Waterford vocalist Gillian NoVa and Brazilian composer Márcio Paz. Their sound features expressive, atmospheric soundscapes, converging with flourishing melodic hooks and expansive rhythm. Tones range from the warm and cinematic to the bittersweet melancholic.

Press have compared Darkroom Data to acts like Chromatics, College, London Grammar, CHVRCHS, and Niki & the Dove with their first four (self-released and self-promoted) singles achieving ample praise for their nocturnal synth-driven pop sound. 'Darkroom Data’s peculiar world touts a decidedly cinematic character, reminiscent of Polanski and David Lynch, as if Chinatown or Blue Velvet were set in small-town Ireland.'

The duo have received favourable independent reviews received from over 50 outlets in 20 countries e.g. EARMILK, IGGY Magazine, Nialler9, Vents Magazine, Podcart, Obscure Sound, Son of Marketing, Indie Buddie, and AnalogueTrash. Two of their four singles have been chosen as track of the week by Dan Hegarty, RTE 2fm. ‘Groovatta’ was featured by Nialler9 in May and 'Fall With You' was one of his featured tracks in November. ‘Hydrogen’ entered Hype Machine’s top ten on Sept 25 and was featured on their most popular playlists. Proving a hit with listeners as well as critics, their tracks continue to grow in popularity on Spotify.

'Fall With You' produced by Márcio Paz is built on layered ominous strings, ethereal synths, and a rich slap bassline that all add up to a moody canvas for lead singer Gillian NoVa's unique vocal performance.' - EARMILK

'Hypnotic arpeggios, emotive vocal hooks, sentimental lyricism and an artfully abstract approach to composition, Darkroom Data's self-released single proves to be a product of the creators' sheer, effortless ingenuity.' - Absynth.space

'Gillian NoVa and Márcio Paz really know their business when it comes to pop music: their debut single transcends genres and styles, mixing compelling and radio-ready hooks with a refined production that winks instead more to the alt scene' - Teez fm
