“’Badlands’ is an attempt to capture the feel of an epic feature film in a 3 minute pop song.”
Taken from their upcoming debut album, due out later this year, the moody ‘Badlands’, encapsulates the world of Dark Tropics perfectly. Highlighted by lead singer Rio’s striking vocals, biting strings, and simmering keys, ‘Badlands’ inhabits by emotional proclamation that exist purely in states of betrayal, heartbreak and revenge. With a diverse, deep sound palette that straddles contemporary pop, neo-soul and classical arrangements, its the ideal introductory track to Dark Tropics swirling musical world.
Drawn together by a bond that stretched from Ireland to Morocco, musicians Rio and Gerard found common ground in the form of Radiohead, Aretha Franklin and The Velvet Underground.
Look for far more from this dynamic duo.
