'A Darker Shade Of White' is our first album and is the result of four precious years of intense and sometimes frustrating but (in the end) extremely satisfying work with eachother and some of our best friends, without whom it would never have been the way it is right now.
We do not try to duplicate the past, nor we have the illusion to invent something completely new; we wrote the songs only WE can write.
Hope you like them!
Clear your mind from expectations, have a good seat and listen to the whole album (preferably multiple times, on vinyl, with the volume cranked up loud). We appriciate your honest opinion!
If you like or love what we do, please share our music with your friends. That's what music is meant for, and that's why our music is free to share.
