[Videotheque] The Darkstar Calling - Shadow of Your Love

The Darkstar Calling is a fairly new band from Mexico that recently released its first EP 'The Wasteland Wanderer'. The band's sound is mostly a mix of darkwave and post-punk elements. The song "Shadow of your love" is the EP's opener and its a very characteristic speciment of the band's musical direction.
The band was kind enough to provide us the official video for the song a few days prior to it's official release and today we present it to you. Enjoy it!

The Darkstar Calling is the brainchild of Mexican composer and multi-instrumentalist Mario del Río.  Drawing from his over twenty years of musical creativity, in which he  has alternated between hard rock/heavy metal and acoustic/folk projects, Mario has created a peculiar musical and lyrical experience that he has  come to refer to as “post-apocalyptic synth rock”.
Mario  has succeeded in blending together a rich rhythmic background,  characteristic of the singer-songwriter genre, with powerful hard rock elements borrowed from his experience in the death-rock underground  scene. The result is a musical fabric capable of conveying a wide spectrum of feelings. The musical canvas created is filled with deeply  personal lyrics that walk us trough the everyday internal struggles of  the artist, making the Darkstar Calling an intimate, almost  autobiographic project.
The  atmospheres created and the lyrical themes explored are reminiscent of  artists like Nick Cave, Enrique Bunbury or Human Drama, while the  melodic landscape and vocal delivery will appeal both to listeners of  Peter Murphy and Deine Lakaien or to  fans of The Cure and The Sisters of Mercy.
