It was somewhere between the songs about friends in emotional despair and his best friend dying that Marc Trignano of Dark Design captured the audience in his musically emotional grip.

This comes as no surprise though, seeing as the now 15-year-old frontman wrote and released his first album when he was only 13, and at the age of 14 caught the attention of North Jersey independent record labels.

This small indie spotlight that barely shone on him was not enough to keep him for a while. A year later and his band Dark Design is currently finishing the production of their album “Stars and Melodies”, a group of songs that Marc Trignano wrote mid-to-late 2008.

Dark Design has been called “a band with catchy instrumentation and melodies with tear-jerking lyrics.”

Influences are Allison Weiss, Amanda Palmer, Animal Collective, Blue October, Bright Eyes, Damien Rice, Death Cab For cutie, The Dresden Dolls, Elliott Smith, Joanna Newsom, Kate Nash, Killers, MGMT, Neutral Milk Hotel, Noah and the Whale, Okkervil River, Panda Bear, Pixies, Postal Service, Sigur Ros, Tryad, Talking Heads, Terra Naomi, Victoria Carillo
