After honing his Darkwave sound for about a year, the DIY solo project of Domenico C. under the new alter ego Rioux Désolés finally drops a suggestive video for the latest Cure-sque flanger guitar tone flecked track “Forbidden Reality.”
The tenebrous serenade “Forbidden Reality” paints the tragic portrait of a couple in love whose invisible walls of silence and fear inject festering feelings of shame, regret, and confusion into the hopeful wishes for romantic reunification.
Dark, dangerous, doom-laden textures weave haunted glistening guitar strings with steady punchy beats, warbling undulating bass lines, and icy bright synth stabs to create desperate moods around deeply emotional vocal croons, shedding heartache, sorrow, and fear into a shifting atmosphere of dramatic tension.
Cold cinematic auras fuse scenic black and white visuals with an intimate bedroom performance to evoke feelings of stark, lost melancholia. Grey stagnant skies, shifting outdoor scenery, and ghostly transparent overlays coalesce into brooding thought forms of doubt and dread before giving way to slight slivers of hope slowly seeping through a distant sunset of blinding destiny.
