the Dark Matter Trio

Like the theoretical substance from which this band takes its name, the music of the Dark Matter Trio is best observed by its compelling effect on the listener. This is "Modern American Music" made by music lovers for music lovers; sometimes heavy and intense, other times quiet and subdued, some times light and upbeat but maintaining a symbiotic balance between the provocative and approachable. Each of their songs is a story without the obvious redundancy of words.
