WL//WH Video Of The Day: DISTANT STARES & DIAR STORM “Vessels Will Dry”


Distant Stares, the Gothic Rock act from Finland teams up with the Essen, Germany-based musician, producer, singer, and songwriter Diar Storm to deliver a soul-stirring video/single, “Vessels Will Dry.”

A life spent seeking approval from a twisted, compassionless soul injects feelings of guilt, fear, and hopelessness into thoughts of running away.

Dark Psychological drama stirs warm glowing orchestral synth swathes through a claustrophobic bed of heavy trembling bass lines and light tapping obsessive beats to surround an evocative male/female vocal interplay of haunted pain-fueled cries, fearful whispers, and dissociative chants with a shield of distance from distorted unhinged screams. 

A misty grey supernatural realm sets a metaphysical tone for a captivating performance by Distant Stares and Diar Storm. As usual, Diar’s wardrobe is striking and adds a unique perspective when combined with the symbolic props and shapeshifting overlays. Dramatic black-and-white contrasts, meaningful color changes, and on point facial expressions by the duo seamlessly elicit the critical emotional intensity of the soundtrack.

Distant Stares & Diar Storm‘s collaborative single “Vessels Will Dry”, will be released on the major streaming platforms on March 15 via 1984 Records
