Avi Darkbloom release their two-track debut single ‘The Frame’ & ‘Berlin ’39′ 1st September 2014 on Hineni records.
Hailing from Manchester, UK, Avi Darkbloom are acutely aware of their city’s cultural significance, not least in popular music. “To be honest, we want nothing less than to plant our flag firmly in our hometown’s musical heritage, from 10CC to The Smiths to I am Kloot to The 1975 and a million others. This is how we access the world and our dreams.”
And don’t be surprised if you hear retro vibes in Avi Darkbloom’s music. “Well, it’s about 35 years old”, says a grinning Noam-David Wright, the group’s singer and songwriter. “Born in ’79, it’s my musical reference point. So many great artists were around at that time, including the great Elvis Costello and marvellous Squeeze. They believed then, as we do now, that fine music recreates the past in its own image.”
