“There is something inherently pleasing about three-piece bands and therefore about The Dark Sinatras. It probably lies in the minimalism of instrumentation, three key instruments all playing necessary roles, a clean limbed, musical economy, no excess frippery, no spare parts, just the essential functionality of a machine where every piece has a vital role to play. Paul Turners ability to deliver bass grooves that are both hard as hell and melodically pleasing and the jazz-rock dexterity of drummer Ed Laubinger combine to make a wonderfully intricate set of rhythms and the perfect canvas for front man Mark White to paint spiky and Byzantine heavy guitar work upon. Dark Sinatra’s are a band that take lots of familiar concepts and put them together in new and creative ways, but the defining factor for me was the rhythm section.”
Dave Franklin - Green Man Music
Oh, I see lies in the eyes of the ones who believe.
Freed from a rational mind.
Oh, it takes dark times to see.
Some things can only be real.
What is this? You are wasting our time.
Where would we be if we weren't so ridiculous.
Oh, I smell fear in the sweat of the ones on their knees.
Oh, how the broken heads fall.
Oh, it’s so easy to take.
I just forget to recall.
