If we had thirty seconds to describe our band, we would probably roll a cigarette, shuffle awkwardly and then tell you we rock......of course.

Biography

If we take you back to the winter of 2007. It was cold and raining, but somewhere in the South East of England nestled in a rehearsal room under a railway arch rang the illuminating sounds of a Marshall Amp. Along side it drifted the uncompromising vocals of one certain female singer. Outside in in the lonesome glow of a street lamp the ears of damp drummer rejoiced in the sound of such rock. He opened the door and said will you give me shelter? With that he picked up a pair of drum sticks that lay on the floor, sat behind the studio kit and played with all his might.
The walls shook and even the trains above trembled. And so Darkroom Project was born.
After this joyful collaboration had formed, so began much writing, rehearsing and seeking the missing link - a bass player.
With two now three, they searched high and low, through the streets of England to the valleys of Wales. Nowhere could they find their man. Until one day, after enjoying a swift pint of ale at a local pub they stepped outside to hear the low rumblings of a bass guitar. They followed the sound day and night, across land and sea until they reached a small village in Italy, where there in front of them stood Albi.
Three had become four.
With four different sets of influences, from Led Zep to the Stones, from Guns and Roses to Nirvana, from The Doors to Metallica from Slayer to Aerosmith and from the Foo Fighters to Sound Garden, it was always going to be about rock.
We hope that we give you a fresh, female fronted take on a genre of music that we love and has given us some of the most influential artists to walk the planet.

Lyrics

Soldier

Written By: Darkroom Project

I want to be you, I want to be you
Cause i like the way you do things, and i know you like me to too
I'll be your, soldier, Ill be your soldier
I'll be your right hand man, take a bullet on the battlefield

We'll be like Bonnie and Clyde,
Except they can take us alive,
Always running with the wind beneath our heels,
I'll be the smoke in your gun,
Till our flesh turns to dust, turns to dust,
Yeah, yeah (repeated)

Soldier, I'll be your soldier,
I'll be your right hand man, take a bullet on the battlefield
Soldier, I'll be your soldier,
I'll be your right hand man, take a bullet in the back.

In the madness, In the mayhem
Like a halfway house of hunger, I will hold you in the rain,
And if you, fall down, if you fall down,
I will catch you, I will hold you,
Yeah you know ill make you proud of me,
We'll be like Bonnie and Clyde,
Cause we're as young as the night,
If they take us, they can take us side by side,
I'll be the link in your chain,
Till the sun sets again...sets again
Yeah, yeah (repeated)

Soldier, I'll be your soldier,
I'll be your right hand man, take a bullet on the battlefield
Soldier, I'll be your soldier,
I'll be your right hand man, take a bullet in the back for you.
x2

Soldier, I'll be your soldier (repeated)

Soldier, I'll be your soldier,
I'll be your right hand man, take a bullet on the battlefield
Soldier, I'll be your soldier,
I'll be your right hand man, take a bullet in the back for you.
x3

Soldier, I'll be your soldier (repeated)

Ahead of Myself

Written By: Darkroom Project

Well I see your tears rolling down my window,
Spilt milk cries in your river tonight,
I float upstream, I get a little bit wiser,
Try and drag me under, but i get high
I keep on getting so high now

But i always get ahead of myself,
Summer leaves so lonely all by itself,
My hearts on fire, but i'm burning in hell,
Cause i always get ahead, of myself

You come wrap your words around my shoulders,
Try keep me shrouded in your doubt, no doubt, yeah,
But im not the one, see im a little bit older,
Im not the one so don't bring me down

Cause i always get ahead, of myself
Summer leaves so lonely all by itself,
My hearts on fire, but i'm burning in hell,
Cause i always get ahead, of myself

Ahead of myself,

And i always get ahead, of myself
Summer leaves so lonely all by itself,
My hearts on fire, but i'm burning in hell,
Cause i always get ahead, of myself
x2

Summer leaves by itself, (repeated)

My hearts on fire, but i'm burning in hell,
Cause i always get ahead, of myself

Intervention

Written By: Darkroom Project

You, you fight like your brave,
And in the garden you saved me,
From the serpent inside,
So tell me how did you know,
That I couldn’t survive,
That I’d never let go without a little,
Without a little,

In-ter-ven-tion,
Come take what your willing to get
I said, In-ter-ven-tion,

I, I waited so long
And the dark it was strong,
So much stronger than me,
So tell me how did you know,
That I’d never survive,
That I’d never be free without a little,
Without a little,

In-ter-ven-tion,
Come take what your willing to get
I said, In-ter-ven-tion,
x 2

(Instrumental)

In-ter-ven-tion,
Come take what your willing to get
I said, In-ter-ven-tion,
x2
