Dark Dark Dark is an American folk band based out of Minneapolis, USA and we are thrilled to have them come and play for us in Brighton in August!
With listeners everywhere having a very emotional response to Dark Dark Dark’s music, and their sophomore album – titled Wild Go – being ambitious and layered, it reminds us to seek out the wonder and magic that surrounds us all the time, and we are thrilled to have them come and play for us in Brighton in August!
Their sound sets Nona Marie Invie’s soaring, haunted voice against an array of traditional instruments, balancing folk and high-art, creating music that is making people crazy. Their music has also featured on Greys Anatomy and Skins.
The 10-song collection album is a marked evolution for the group, which began in 2006 as a collaboration between Minneapolis based musicians Nona Marie Invie and Marshall LaCount. These two songwriters bring together disparate influences including minimalism, New Orleans jazz, Americana, Eastern European folk, and pop. Using stark contrast in texture, tone and imagery, the band has expanded and redefined their sound for the new album.
New album – Bright Bright Bright – to be released Oct. 2012 on Supply & Demand Music.
“Dark Dark Dark rue accomplishment here is how they mix sounds and influences so effortlessly. They comprise a tight, intuitive unit, especially when the instruments swirl together into an otherworldly eddy of sound”. Pitchfork
