Sure, Dark Dark Dark could probably pass for a Regina Spektor cover band but “Daydreaming” is just too good of a song too pass up despite its unoriginality. The piano melody is brilliant and the clear, cutting vocals are a showcase of Nona Marie Invie’s of perfect, piercing vocals. And the song is so beautifully structured, perfectly building and adding till a crescendo and then slowly tearing down the empire built over the course of the song. Not much needs to be said when it comes to “Daydreaming” a transparent tune that a quick listen through will expose, but it is the effortless emotion poured into the song that makes it stand out in a crowded field of that Spektoresque female singer.
Dark Dark Dark hails from Minneapolis, MN where they obviously worked hard to come out with their EP’s name “Bright Bright Bright.” While the creative process behind the etymology of the album remains shrouded in the dark, dark, dark, feel free to check out the rest of the EP, there is nothing stopping you from checking out this wonderful EP. And now that I have written this article I have found that this song was featured in Grey’s Anatomy and American Idol. Disappointing? Yes.
Upon further investigation this song is really popular. What was I thinking, I think its time to hang up the plaid flannel and ironic glasses. Oh well, its still good.
