With gritty lyrics exposing the harsh realities of gang and street life coupled with love and loss over throbbing beats and swirling synthesizers, electronic duo PRAYERS brings an authentic urban feel to Goth music, a mix of genres that crosses cultural and societal boundaries and breaks stereotypes.

PRAYERS creates a modern dystopian landscape based in both brutal reality and transcendental occultism. Featuring Leafar Seyer on vocals and synth and Dave Parley on beats and synth, PRAYERS straddles interlocking worlds: Both members were born in Mexico—Seyer in Cotija, Michochan and Parley in Tijuana—and both grew up watching MTV and listening to punk and goth. Their creativity draws on the conflict of embracing of alternative, underground styles rather than traditional Chicancismo, the dissonance of their existence as indigenous people treated as immigrants on their ancestral land, and their status as Mexicans playing in what has long been viewed as a white genre. 

Influenced by Christian Death, Depeche Mode, Bauhaus, Pet Shop Boys and other dark 80s music as well as Seyer's life as member in one of San Diego's oldest gangs, Sherman Grant Hill Park 27, PRAYERS is considered the pioneer of Cholo Goth. Seyer's experiences in Sherman GHP and his transmutation into an acclaimed fine artist, author, and now counterculture idol, form the foundation of PRAYERS, with the singer expressing his real life conquests over betrayal, rejection, and false imprisonment of the body and spirit, as he fights the ultimate battle to transcend this world and its boundaries. 

PRAYERS' dynamic music, Seyer's direct yet poetic lyrics, the stark blackwhite neo-noir videos, which combine true street stories and esoteric spirituality, and their compelling, authentic live shows draw your immediate attention.

Fierce yet mystic, brutal yet beautiful, PRAYERS is the sound of the Southland, a stirring of the winds of changes that begin on the West Coast and moves across the globe. Combining street reality, traditional magic, and gothic dance beats, PRAYERS crashes through barriers to shift consciousness.

Go Dark is Ash & Doseone, who met watching some Oakland fists fly during a street fight one night. They've been thrashing buttons and cutting analog kick-drum-centric electronic music ever since. "Go Dark's music is impossible to pigeonhole, as it has some grounding in hip-hop as well as synth pop and eight-bit video-game music. Even the videos and the visual presentation of the band have roots in those old video-game systems. Ash grew up playing Sega and games like Alex the Kid and Altered Beast. Doseone has an extensive collection of classic games that by today's standards would seem quaint but which has an aesthetic that isn't trying to imitate real life." (Westword)
