Heavy strings and harmonious vocals make Dark Dark Dark's debut album The Snow Magic a pure vision of fluid instrumentation and jarring imagery. The band's past is so deeply woven within the dynamics of their sound and style that it is impossible to not be moved by this album, though it may be a tad too movie soundtrack sounding. Singing of ghosts, murders, and of course love, Dark Dark Dark's dueling male/female vocals make you wanna swirl around to embroidered paper doll cut-outs and cotton ball clouds. Its intense if you're in the mood for daunting gypsy music sung by semi-realistic gypsies.
