Golden Dawn Arkestra share new song, “Darkness Falls”

The results of a “backyard shack jam.”

Eclectic Texas collective Golden Dawn Arkestra have released “Darkness Falls,” a new single from their upcoming record Darkness Falls on the Edge of Time.

Warbling guitar and brassy improv meet hypnotizing percussion on “Darkness Falls,” a track that “came about organically out of a backyard shack jam,” founder Zapot Mgawi explained in a statement shared with It’s Psychedelic Baby.

He added, “It is the most Afrobeat song on the album, drawing heavy influences from late ’60s jazz stylings as well. The song speaks to the dire times we are living through.”


“Darkness Falls” is the third single from Darkness Falls on the Edge of Time, the group’s third record due out October 11. Stream it below:
