Mark Peters & The Dark Band - Us Against Them (single)

Formed in 2017, Vienna based ‘Mark Peters & The Dark Band’ release the second single ‘US AGAINST THEM’ from their upcoming album. Peters, originally from London, started out playing as a duo with drummer Fabian Natter in 2016. Bassist Markus Manahl joined the duo for the release of Peters’ first EP ‘Spirits’ in 2017. The line-up was completed in 2018 with guitarist Martin Burtscher stepping in to work on the second EP ‘Sum of all Parts’. Following two central European tours the group began to work on their first album, which is set for release in early 2021.

The song starts with sweet guitar tones, setting the romantic mood. Peter's vocal is honest, there are hints of sadness that change into more hopeful as we come into the chorus. Lyrically, the song has some features of a romance but not too sweet. Towards the end the song picks up and turns into one of those anthems that a packed arena couldd sing along to. The track ends on the same gentle note, just guitar and vocal, as it started. We couldn't help but notice Peters' London accent being very pronounced in certain parts of the song. It's not a bad thing at all, it just shows that one can never deny the roots.

"it's us against them, always us till the end..."
