Dark Dark Dark mix Americana with Eastern European influences to create a unique blend of folk music. Hailing from Minneapolis, Dark Dark Dark released their second full length album, Wild Go, in October 2010 to critical acclaim.
“Dark Dark Dark’s true 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
“There are eastern European influences here rubbing up against Americana ones. There are spectral interludes and moments of muted drama. There are backing vocals that sound like a Balkan choir. There are varied rhythms, although mainly from the pre-rock era: imagine Mazzy Star if they were formed in 19th-century Prague” – The Guardian
Support comes from Love like Birds
Love Like Birds is the lovechild of Elke De Mey, a young musician, currently living in Gent, Belgium. The warm, dreamy voice she is blessed with gives her bedroomfolk an attractive, intimistic feeling.
For a while she has been playing as Love Like Birds for anyone who cares to listen, and with a fast growing number of fans it became time for a self-titled EP.
On this EP she enriches her dark honest, lo-fi songs with subtle arrangements, with the help of the producerduo Jinte Deprez (Balthazar) and Gertjan Van Hellemont (Douglas Firs, The Bony King of Nowhere).
It causes the songs to breath and come to life. The whole story is being whispered into your ears, as if you’d been watching a nice scenery. Often you get the impression she wants to avoid that the neighbours can eavesdrop on her personal tales.
