Dark Suburb is Ghana’s first Alternative Rock Band. According to them , they are caught between the worlds of the seen and the unseen; the living and the dead.
They wear skeleton masks to highlight the point of our shared humanity and to remind the world that we are one people regardless of sex, race or social status
The masks, the group believes, gives them a uniform identity and hides individual egos and differences just as they expect the people everywhere to see themselves as an important unit in a big team working for a better world.
Made up of five musicians and a poet who is the Chief Priest of the band, Dark Suburb fuses various styles of music, especially African rhythms, with rock.
The idea is to show what they can do with different strands of music.
According to their Soundcloud , they have been invoked back to life by a priest disenchanted with the current state of the music industry. So he travels to the underworld to recruit the best singer, drummer, guitarist and pianist to form a great band for the ages.
But alas! Before the band can make a transition to the land of the living, they must be accepted by the living. The more they are loved, the more they will be revealed. They draw their breath, their form, their strength from the vitality of the living.
And so for now Dark Suburb is an apparition, their music echoing from the shadows. The more they are loved, the more they will be revealed.
