Oh, The Guilt – Darkest Days – Single Review

The noir-rock trio of Elijah DahlHannah Layhe and Chris Nicholls from Bristol (England) – Oh, The Guilt – released the single Darkest Days today.

Oh, The Guilt

Oh, The Guilt

Following on from their 2016 eponymous EP (available on bandcamp) Darkest Days (also available on bandcamp) while holding similar brooding presence in its slowly rotating dark gothic demeanour is simultaneously able to catch the sense of isolation and introspective melancholia felt when life goes badly wrong while equally offering outstretched arms extending a comforting and sympathetic embrace of companionship.

A song which, in my view, lifts their music in to an altogether higher plane of performance as the absorbing bass, muffled percussion and dreamy guitar are woven with the hypnotic and otherworldly vocal, giving the song a mesmeric allure – there are few better ways in which to spend the seven and just over three quarters minutes of Darkest Days – I merely implore of Oh, The Guilt that it is long before 2020 that they return with new music.
