So my first reaction to Ego Likeness‘ website was “eeee gothy.” The group was created by Steven Archer and Donna Lynch, who are married and live in the DC area with two hairless cats, which is awesome.
Pretty gothy right? So I said to myself: “I bet they sound like the Crüxshadows.”Lo and behold:
Okay, so maybe not as dancey as the Crüxshadows, but it definitely has the dark, electronica vibe going for it. Shall we try another?
That’s a little dancier, right? Also, lady vocals!
Here’s some grainy, shaky footage of their live act:
As is to be expected, they have toured frequently with the Crüxshadows and have played Dragon*Con several times. They’ve also opened for . They fall squarely into the gothy electronica group of bands at Dragon*Con, which I generally prefer to the folksy Celtic music group of bands at Dragon*Con–even though all the gothy electronica groups sort of blend together for me unless I specifically know them or their music (ie: Crüxshadows). Still, it is easier for me to dance to the gothy electronica music than the folksy Celtic music–sorry men in kilts. Just in case you were curious, here is their Dragon*Con website profile.
-Anchored by a married couple
-Opened for the Crüxshadows and Voltaire
Two thumbs up! More black eyeliner and synth please!
