We're a Band or Something

dot.darkness is pronounced dot-dot-darkness. The duo builds on an electronic canvas with sexy live vocals and electric guitars. Formed in Nashville, TN in 2011, these Computer Scientists took Josh's background as an electronic producer and Colin's former life as a rock star and put together something that sounded kind like both of those things, and a little like neither of them. Drawing on influences from classic video games, 80's style electronica, alternative rock, and post-rock, dot.darkness has developed a style that is passionate, nerdy, and fun.

In 2011, shortly after the release of Portal 2, dot.darkness performed a cover of "The Future Soon" by Jonathan Coulton. JoCo was gracious enough to tweet our cover to his Internet fandom. In February of 2013, we did a cover of Feed Me's new track "Death By Robot", which subsequently receieved a similar post from Mr. Jon Gooch himself. Having played the cover song game for long enough, dot.darkness released the original EP: Damage Over Time on February 14, 2014.
