Dark Dark Dark - Bright Bright Bright / Wild Go (50th Post)

The sextet, Dark Dark Dark from Minneapolis revolve around Nona Marie Invie and Marshall LaCount, producing chamber-folk with Nona's flitting haunted voice. Dark Dark Dark dabbles in strudy old instrumentation that'd prove fitting with Nona's vocals time and time again. And the desired effect comes through as though the sextet are tapping into some arcane, ancient melodies brought back. They play songs, with a driven narrative of soulsearching, finding and being found, basic human emotions blown out of proportion. And fittingly, the rag-tag bunch travel alot, keeping on their toes like a group of touring troubadours.

Having toured with WHY?, they'd just released their newest album yet, Wild Go, earlier last month up on Supply & Demand. I've been trying to get into Wild Go, but I'd have to admit, it hasn't been getting much plays with me. Hopefully its a grower, but as of now, I just can't put Bright Bright Bright down. Kinda felt that with 6 short songs, they'd pack more punch. Like a blow to the Jugular.

Bright Bright Bright, their 6-song EP includes Something For Myself which was redone in Wild Go. They also have a movie inproduction, not too sure when it'll come out, but the title's Flood Tide, here.

I don't know bout you, but she blows me away.
Just realised it's my 50th blog post. So yay~
