Founded by three Cambridge kids - an MIT student who invents cat toys, a poetry expert fluent in Chinese, and a math savant who once held the Minesweeper world record - Vivian Darkbloom is the geeky-hip grad student's tak on alt/indie rock
In 2012, Vivian Darkbloom will release its debut full-length record - Know Your Exit. The album was recorded over the span of three years, in various studios throughout Boston, and it showcases the band's penchant for pop structures, dark themes, and technological oddities.
The band has achieved notoriety for its unique instruments (ROB MORRIS plays an MIT-built WII GUITAR) and its crowdsourced approach to audio production (the track "Know Your Exit" includes over 1100 tracks recorded by people throughout the world, from Taiwan to Macedonia).
Their first MUSIC VIDEO is web-based and interactive. Two weeks after its release, it was nominated for a 2012 SXSW award.
The band has conducted regional tours on the East and West coasts, including performances at major clubs and festivals, such as CMJ's Music Marathon. In 2010, they opened for THE AIRBORNE TOXIC EVENT.
