My Dark House is the Mississippi-based husband and wife duo of Lindsey and Will Thornton. Their sound is foundationally post-punk, but fused with strong elements of shoegaze and dream pop. They first came to our attention last year, after releasing a string of captivating singles via Bandcamp. We were intrigued. We’re still intrigued. Enjoy getting to know My Dark House with us.
How and when was the band formed?
My Dark House was a largely abandoned project of mine from around 2013, but after my wife expressed interest in learning to play the bass guitar, I decided to start it back up. She picked up the instrument very quickly, and we settled on the idea of being a duo. We decided to use a drum machine, and keep in-line with a minimal approach to our music.
Can you tell us what the band has been working on and what you’ve got forthcoming in the near future (any new releases, tour, etc.)?
We’ve just released an EP, titled I Heard You Crying, and have already begun writing a full length that we plan on releasing sometime in late spring/early summer. The two of us have finally found the direction and sound we have been looking for, so we are pouring all of our efforts into putting out an album that we’re excited about.
