BleakHeart have created a dark, hypnotic, glacial-paced blend of doom, post-rock, shoegaze, goth, folk, psychedelia, and more, and Kelly Schilling's soaring voice keeps you hooked at every turn.” - Andrew Sacher

A haunting eclipse of sorrow and desire

Drawing influences from indie rock, shoegaze, psych rock, doom metal, goth/darkwave, Denver Colorado's BleakHeart creates an emotionally lush atmosphere of rich guitars, haunting synths, and dynamic vocals. 

By juxtaposing mournful, low-fi, guitar-driven soundscapes with shimmering, ethereal vocals and keys, Dream Griever seeks to reflect on the absurdity of the human condition.  “The album explores the patterns of destruction and turmoil created within ourselves, and the time we lose within those fleeting cycles,” says Schilling.  Through anger, deception, loss, and wanting, Dream Griever presents a vulnerable and beautiful atmosphere of introspection around the pitfalls of human experience. “The record goes to all of those places - the acknowledgement, the attempted escape, and the inevitable missteps into the depths of our own machinations.” 

Bleakheart began as a solo project of JP Damron (guitars, Vermin Womb), who soon recruited friend Kelly Schilling (vocals, keys, Dreadnought) to contribute her voice to the project. After releasing an initial demo together, the dreamily-dreary duo was then joined by Mark Chronister (guitars), Josh Kauffman (drums), and Jen GaNun (vocals, synth) to fully realize their unique brand of downtrodden, gothy psychedelia.
