Donna Blue - Dark Roses (Digital)
After three critically acclaimed EP’s, Donna Blue announce their debut album ‘Dark Roses’, which paints you as vivid a picture as a film score. Coupled as songwriters and in real life, too, Bart and Danique indeed sourced the inspiration for the album from realms beyond music, skimming the cream of movies, art, and myths of the world together. The synergy of two artistic minds resulting in 11 dreamlike tracks, lining your senses like a mirage. The atmosphere romantic, yet with all the darkness of the thorns included.
Moving from dream state to lush sensory excitement, the album plays with the feeling of being alive, yet in a carefully sculpted parallel world. For those who choose to venture down into their grainy universe, the reward will be tantalising: bursting with soundscapes, twangy Western guitars and sensual vocals. Donna Blue leads the way into bygone, or perhaps, for the poet and believer, future days - an escape from the mundane. With this full length debut, Donna Blue creates a space for imagination, leaving the ultimate degree of illusion up to the listener to decide for themselves.
