Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to Mark Peters & The Dark Band. I discovered this Band while shuffling songs on Spotify and I liked their compositional style.
The first adjectives that came to my mind while listening to the beautiful songs of this band are refined and magical.
A compositional style that reminded me of the great American songwriters, the lyrics are deep and manage to speak directly to the heart.
An impeccably produced music, the chord progression is never banal and obvious and manages to entertain the listener from the first to the last second.
The production is professional and the mix leaves the right space for each sound element.
Real music that reveals the passion for music that this band have in his heart.
Memorial is Mark Peters & The Dark Band’s Album Out Now!
Refined and Fresh!
Quote: “I’m Mark, the songwriter and frontman from Mark Peters & The Dark Band. I come from London and the band come from Vorarlberg in Austria. I met them in Vienna where we all currently live.
Up to now we have released a couple of EP’s and our debut album ‘Memorial’ is out now.
We tried to steer away from making a traditional folk/singer-songwriter album and aimed to create something more experimental and unexpected. In this respect it’s a very eclectic group of songs but I think they all share a common sound and theme.
As a songwriter, It’s the work I’m most proud of to date. Many of the songs were ideas I had 15 or so years ago but couldn’t realise them until I met the right people to play with. The songs deal with some heavy topics but in the end I wanted to transfer a message of positivity and overcoming“.
