Based in Shoreditch, London (UK) The dark Blue matter are inspired by the great music of the modern rock and blues era. Our aim is simple to: keep the light shining for blues-based music, keep the faith, and play songs with a positive message in a direct an honest way…  Simply put, we offer a brand new take on all that modern blues has to offer – which is plenty! With a blend of real playing and boundless imagination we're winning hearts and raising spirits….
