Describing themselves as “Anti Pop Synth Pop”, Dark Train are an electronic duo based in Brighton. In their sunny south coast hideaway, Lauren Bateman and Marcel Ino combine their respective backgrounds in dance and post-punk and a mutual love of analog synths to produce deliciously moody sounds that are equal parts sinister and intriguing, as shown to great effect on “Sing to You”.
Dark Train recently supported at the live debut of Empathy Test, another of this year’s exciting new synth bands and longtime favourites of this site. Dark Train next play live at Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar in Brighton, playing Brighton Rocks in support of The Dirty Divine and Pleasure House, on Friday 7th November. Tickets are £4 (four pounds! why would you not go?)
