DarkTrain Q&A

Band name: 

Where are you from? 
Lauren is from Maidstone Kent, Marcel is from Toronto, Canada, but our home is in Brighton.

How would you describe yourselves? 
Indietronica. We thought we couldn't fall into any specific genre until we came across this term. There's a certain poetic feel about that word which encompasses what we are about

Who are your main influences musically? 
We discovered CHVRCHES together and loved how they used Eighties-style analog sounds in a modern way. We got inspired by this exciting innovative sound and came together to do something in a similar vein but with a darker undertone, fusing our other influences: Ulrich Schnauss, M83, LadyTron and Sisters Of Mercy.

What do you hope to achieve in music? 
We want to record an epic, timeless album. 

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why? 
Playing with Empathy Test at their debut show in London. It was really great to play alongside an act we admired and respected, plus they're great guys. 

And what’s the moment you want to forget? 
None yet, touch wood.

If you had to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why? 
'Inside'. Marcel's style tends to be more electro-clash where as Lauren leans toward a more ambient side, which made for interesting writing. 'Inside' was the fruit of these adverse styles where everything harmonised perfectly. We knew then that we had found our identity.

Where can we listen to it? 

Where can we find out more about your music? 

Anything else you’d like to say about your band/music that I forgot to ask? 
Being a new act, we were anxious as to how we'd pull it off live, however we have been overwhelmed by the audience response to our sound, saying how big and impactive it is.
