When listeners tune in to Mark Peters & The Dark Band, they will immediately think of the sound of Davey Jones from the band The Monkees. With that in mind, his voice and sound of the group points to the stylistic vibe of that era and this is reflected within the lyrics and musical setup of his songs. Lyrics such as “you’ve been talking me down” will make those who listen think about the messages he’s trying to convey within his music. Half journal entry, half anthem Mark Peters & The Dark Band sings to his audience on a personal level and it shows in a transparent way. The meaning behind all of these songs on the EP all found their purpose back to the band after they finished the album. With the joined efforts of Fabian Natter on Drums, Martin Burtscher on Electric Guitar, Markus Manahl on Bass and Mark Peters singing vocals and playing acoustic guitar, be prepared for all of the realness to hit your core.
