Our Backstage Artists Portraits From Darker Waves 2023

The inaugural Darker Waves festival brought new wave legends, some gothy younger bands, and the Cardigans’ first US set in 17 years to Huntington Beach in California over the weekend. We caught acts like Tears For Fears, New Order, Psychedelic Furs, the B-52s, and Echo & The Bunnymen — all of whom, coincidentally, have appeared or will appear in our The Alternative Number Ones column. You can read our review of the event here and check out our photo portraits of some of the performers by Wilson Lee below.
