    “Like the desert’s razor-sharp winter air, Las Vegas music scene veterans Dark Black have married the cold and light on their latest release. The 6-song EP features shimmering guitars splashed against a paranoid, racing panorama of classic post-punk, as well as shoegaze, goth, and even surf influences, resulting in a sound as familiar, yet singular, as the band’s notorious hometown.

    The anxious track-listing, penned by singer/guitarists Dillon Shines and Matthew Frantom, touches on social awarenesses, past relationships, philosophy and science-fiction, only to wrap up with the EP’s title track, the thunderous, synth-heavy, “Dissolve,” in which Shines simply declares: “When it’s all exposed/for lies or truth/there’s only one/thing left to do/we all dissolve/it all dissolves.”

    And perhaps everything does all dissolve – like winter into spring, like dark into light, or like Shines, Frantom, and drummer George Foskaris’s popular, crushing, post-hardcore group Caravels, which dissolved to make way for Dark Black’s formation in 2015. But as the five-piece band’s first fully-realized collection of songs, Dissolve – recorded at Las Vegas’s National Southwestern Recording (Guided by Voices, The Killers, Mark Ronson) – marks the beginning of something solid.  

    Dissolve is definitely going to be a starting point for what will be a more refined version of us,” Frantom said. “
