Darkwave Project SAD EYED PEARL Debuts Haunting Single “IS THIS SACRIFICE?”

Emerging in the initial phase of 2020, Sad Eyed Pearl, the brainchild of Johnmichael Waggoner and Greg Noethlich, is anchored in the belief that music transcends mere amusement or a means for second-hand experiences. Instead, it constitutes a hallowed intersection where souls can gather, reconnect, and breathe life back into dormant emotions.

Driven by an urge to frame both splendor and tragedy in their rawest states, “Is This Sacrifice?“, the first tune from their forthcoming album, navigates the treacherous waters of suffering. It plunges the listener into an emotional spectrum varying from the tenderness of intimacy to the crushing weight of monumental sorrow. In this journey, the duo artfully exposes themes of loss, longing, and ultimately, acceptance.

Echoing elements of Brian Eno, Covenant, David Sylvian, Peter Murphy, Dead Can Dance, and Depeche Mode, “Is This Sacrifice?” intricately explores anguish within an introspective landscape teetering between fragile closeness and heartrending majesty, evoking an experiential understanding of suffering like never before.
