Good In The Dark is a collaboration between multi-instrumentalist Heather Perry, percussionist Carlos Zapata, and guitarist Grant Goldsworthy. Often described as “disco-punk,” the band has already released an acclaimed EP and played shows across the East Coast, Mid-Atlantic, Midwest, and South including NYC, Buffalo, Philadelphia, DC, Pittsburgh, Chicago, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, San Antonio, Austin, and more.
Perry spent twelve years in Chicago performing, recording, and touring with various bands, all of which included Zapata on percussion. When their project Bring Your Ray Gun disbanded in 2014, the pair wanted to continue writing dance music despite Perry’s relocation to Pennsylvania.
They embarked on a long-distance collaboration, trading files and renting a cabin at a halfway point in Ohio to track together. Noise guitarist Grant Goldsworthy joined the line-up in 2017 and the debut EP "Rafters" came out that same year. Garnering praise from critics across the US and UK, it is available on limited edition 10" vinyl and digitally.
The group recently completed a tour through the Midwest that took them down to Austin for SXSW 2019. The release of their second EP and subsequent tour is slated for August of this year.
Perry writes and performs bass, synths, and vocals; Zapata provides drums, auxilliary percussion, and production; Goldsworthy adds guitar and vocals. Live, the band can perform as a two-piece or three-piece depending on the geographies of its members.
