about

Everyone knows that unexplained feeling of descending into darkness. Cruelty and apathy of modern world, uncontrollability of occurring wars... You can't shake it off, it's always with us in some dark corner of our mind, hiding in the echo of every distant explosion, in the recording of each scream or cry. We think about ourselves so often we begin to forget how to live on this planet together. That indifference leads us to one thing and one thing only – to the endless, all-consuming darkness. You can call it hatred, rage or revenge... But in the end it's just the darkness, and you're giving in to it.

lyrics

Thinking of the day
When the sun went down
Instilling me with faith
God has lost his crown
Sounds of explosion
And fire burns in the sky
World-famous potion
But flame will not bring a light

We are blind

I'm giving in to
Darkness that has surrounded me
Going nowhere
’Cause life will never be

I'm giving in to
Darkness inside of me
Fighting and screaming
Just want to let it free

Kill this polar night
No matter wrong or right

Standing on the street
With no place to hide
Every step and beat
Leading to divide
Holding your cold hand
Looking in your eyes
Instead of frozen dead
Hoped to see star lights

Only one world to live in
Do you wanna see its withering?

Killing this polar night
No matter wrong or right

I'm giving in to
Darkness that has surrounded me
Going nowhere
’Cause life will never be

I'm giving in to
Darkness inside of me
Fighting and screaming
Just want to let it…

The Skylift Russia

Begun in 2014, genre-spanning Russian band The Skylift refuse
to let themselves be boxed in.
After releasing their devastating
debut single “Giving In To Darkness” they spent the next few years exploring sounds
more akin to movie scores, both of the aggressive, rock variety and a more somber, yet hopeful approach. The trio are currently working
on more music designed for film and television.
