LOVELY DARK / Speed’s the Name / Hunting Club / Big Lake
Lovely Dark is a six-piece indie rock band based in Minneapolis, MN. They will be releasing their debut studio album “Territories” on April 28th, 2012.
What began as a bedroom recording project for Travis and Sonia Even has blossomed into a dynamic live act bearing the distinct stamp of each of its members, which hail from such diverse bands as Buffalo Buffalo Buffalo, Buildings, Self-Evident, Power of 2, Spaghetti Western String Co, Clair De Lune, Torra! Torra! Torrance! and Young Brides.
They had their first public performance on Radio K’s “Off the Record” in June of 2011. Since then they have been playing consistently in town and regionally.
The music itself is a unique take on folk-inflected percussive indie rock, drawing influence from many eclectic sources – from modern Canadian folk-rock group The Acorn, to Kate Bush, from Faraquet to Florence and the Machine, from The Dismemberment Plan to Tinariwen. Haunting, windswept harmonies combine with dual percussion create a soundscape that calls to mind the pounding of raindrops and scattering autumn leaves. There’s a sense of urgency in the music and lyrics as if it’s a call to wake up.
