Inspired by Gaming | “Sanctuary” by Dusk

LA Alternative Rock Band, Dusk, Pays Homage to Kingdom Hearts III with Debut Release, “Sanctuary”

Sanctuary by Dusk
In honor of the upcoming Kingdom Hearts III video game release, Los Angeles-based alt-rock band Dusk pays homage to the video game series with their single release of “Sanctuary”, a unique take on the ethereal masterpiece by Japanese-American singer, Utada Hikaru.

“Sanctuary” is the perfect marriage between the band’s strong attachment to the introspective themes surrounding the video game series and their own musical and thematic sensibilities influenced by the franchise’s original soundtrack. Dusk takes a different approach to this heartful cover through their exploration of avant-garde instruments and a more alternative sound.

“Sanctuary” is Available Now on all Digital Music Streaming Outlets!

We make a conscious effort to create a soundscape that portrays the fictional world that’s unfolding within our music. In our live show, we incorporate several instruments not commonly found in rock bands, such as bass synthesizers and theremin. – Aaron Rudin (drummer)

Lessons From Kingdom Hearts
Beyond the music, Dusk admits the Kingdom Hearts video game series has largely influenced each band member’s life in significant ways.

  • Lesson 1 Everybody is somebody, and nobody is a nobody.
  • Lesson 2 Create your own future in the present. It is not defined by your past.
  • Lesson 3 We are all a part of each other. Love and trust is the strongest weapon of all.

About Dusk
Dusk is an alt-rock band from Los Angeles, CA formed in 2018. The band’s music is connected through a narrative story which explores themes of utopia, morality, and control.

Their unique atmospheric but heavy spin on the classic alt-rock sound tells the narrative of an expansive story in which the characters’ actions and motivations often lie in a grey area between light and dark – this is the significance of the name, Dusk.

Open the Pages to a Love Story | Quiet Fall Album by Ryan Gibeau

Pop/Rock Artist, Ryan Gibeau, Releases Debut Album, Quiet Fall

Quiet Fall by Ryan Gibeau Ryan Gibeau’s debut album entitled Quiet Fall is an eclectic journey through style and mood, narrating a love story from start to finish. With essences of pop and alternative rock, the use of strings brings a unique flavor to the tracks. Thematically the album is about seeing the change you need, taking care of yourself and leaving behind what isn’t right for you. Sometimes we turn life against ourselves, play victim and it stops us from inspiring others. Quiet Fall is about empowering yourself, seeing that change is necessary and getting back up. Written as an immersive and meaningful album designed to inspire others to be your best self, Gibeau reveals “The album was inspired by a relationship kept together by two people suffering from emotional addiction, what it takes to leave and how to get back on your own feet”.

Leading single “Flying Away” was written whilst flying to Los Angeles to leave behind an unhealthy on-again/off-again relationship. The act of finally and physically leaving allowed the lyrics and chords to almost fall out of Gibeau, essentially sonically journaling his experiences and emotions. “Flying Away” highlights the songwriters signature style of beautiful string arrangements, organic instrumentation and raw vocals that tug on your heart strings.

“Room Gets Hotter” features twangy guitars, smokey vocals and a throbbing bassline. Gibeau reveals, “The theme of my music centres around the concept of love. Often the music subconsciously surfaces and the songs write themselves. I love the exploration and discovery in my songwriting”.

Quiet Fall is Available Now on Spotify, Apple Music, and Amazon!
