Formed in Scotland’s capital, Edinburgh in early 2011 The Dark Jokes are a formidable three piece, who fuse drums, bass and fx layered electric guitar with three part harmonies and samples, creating their very own unique style of alternative rock. The band has found success both at home and abroad.
After the release of their self-released debut E.P. Low Winter Sun in February 2013 the Edinburgh outfit toured Brazil where they supported Kate Nash and The Magic Numbers. They returned to write, record and produce their debut album EKCO Transmissions. The album was released in November 2014 and since then the 3 piece have been touring their live show. April 2015 saw The Dark Jokes return to Sao Paulo to play 8 sell out shows to their growing Brazilian following.
"The Dark Jokes are a band that have really blossomed since I first heard them, and improve and develop at every turn. They are now an ambitious unit centered around the the Dennington brothers, making an honest collision of modern psychedelia, indie and prog-rock with hooks aplenty, lyrical statements and some truly epic arrangements. Their debut album proper 'EKCO Transmissions' is an in-depth and rewarding listen from a band with a load of ideas and a real vision."
