DarkBlueWorld lives and argues in Vancouver, Canada, which makes it a (waitforit) Canadian Band, and writes songs of musical and literary integrity... with all the attendant advantages to which that category of artistic endeavor entitles one. Like free healthcare. And total, yet so very ethically addictive, obscurity. And free healthcare.
The music of DarkBlueWorld has been described as "original, relevant, culturally engaged & emotionally, intellectually uncompromising". Also: "songs visceral and enraged and yet with tenderness and naked vulnerability".
As influences, various members of the band cite in no particular order: the fall, bob dylan, astor piazolla, nirvana, elvis costello, leonard cohen, mingus, the gang of four, beatles, tom waits, diamanda galas, king crimson, televison, hank williams and many other freaks and sociopaths. And, also very importantly, incredibly depressing obscure hungarian village music. Of which the singer has a vast collection. And regales her friends with same. While giggling maniacly.
