Beware of Darkness Releases Cathartically Reflective Video
“Party.” – SPIN
“Beware of Darkness are proud to wear their influences on their sleeve, but rather than trying to imitate their idols, the band have merged the sounds that have inspired them to create something new and exhilarating.” – Contact Music
“Beware of Darkness come out swinging with their raucous style of blues and garage-influenced alternative rock.” – Sputnik Music
SoCal based soulful indie band, Beware of Darkness, releases cathartically reflective track “A Stranger Saved My Life” off of Sanctuary Season mixtape via Bright Antenna Records on American Songwriter today. Often compared to Jack White and the Black Keys while maintaining an old school blues guitar edge similar to Junior Kimbrough, the Cali band has been wildly welcomed to the music scene via Rolling Stone, SPIN, and Conan O’ Brien. Sanctuary Season mixtape is available to fans for free via Soundcloud. However, if fans want to further support the BoD then they can also get it on iTunes.
“A Stranger Saved My Life” nostalgically captures frontman Kyle Nicolaides as a young boy sporting a superman costume back in grade school. As lyrics question what to say, what to do, and how to handle a difficult crossroad in life, the home-like video reminds us that we can be our own superhero when faced with life’s “kryptonite”. Beware of Darkness puts away the Howlin’ Wolf-like blues guitar riffs for a moment to pair a beautifully simplistic melody with a clear focus on how we are the ones in charge of our own destiny.
“There are events and moments in your life that will be tragic, but so unbelievably freeing, and sweet at the same time. And it’s strange and uncomfortable, but it just comes as part of being a human.”
Beware of Darkness made their debut in 2012 when they were asked to open for Tegan and Sara, Stone Temple Pilots, Bush, and Deftones. In May 2013, Beware of Darkness released their first full-length album Orthodox in. Comprised of bassist Daniel Curcio, drummer Tony Cupito, and front man Kyle Nicolaide’s, the band has toured the UK and played across the USA and Europe as main support for Smashing Pumpkins as well as Jane’s Addiction at Uproar Festival.
