Dark Rouge Park
The music of Dark Rouge Park combines classic electronic SynthPop sound with thought-provoking lyrics and unique vocal styling. The lyrics focuses on the reality and sadness in life while promoting survival and coping.
“Parallel World addresses topics you don’t always hear discussed in other music, and they do so in such a deep, meaningful way,” describes one fan after hearing the album. “The music stays with you long after the songs are over.”
Even though, Dark Rouge Park formed in 2012, the band members have been on stage for 20+ years individually.
Thomas Sathmari’s first work, called Space Project was released in the early 90’s, followed by the second album, called “Space Project II”.
Thomas was a member of another band, called “Car Wreckers”, and in the 2000’s he was the songwriter, producer and keyboardist a special group, called MOTIVA.
This band plays classical Hungarian Folk songs, but the music is electronic/synthpop while the feeling and the overall voice follows the traditional Hungarian Folk.
Janos Karsky started his musician career as a Club DJ in various places, followed by a 2 year Radio DJ era. He started to work on the earlier song’s of Dark Rouge Park alone as a solo musician. He wrote instrumental songs under name Dark Light Shadow.
Edina Simon, the front person and the singer of the band has a very long musician and on-stage experience. She worked together with a lots of popular European and Hungarian bands as background vocalist, including a well known Eurodance group, called Groovehouse, and a Pink Floyd tribute band, called “Keep Floyding”.
Dark Rouge Park finally formed in 2012, when Thomas and Janos started to work together. Edina finally joined to the group in 2013 and they soon finished their first song, called Let Me Go.
Their songs focus to negative things, which are part of the life. Songs about deep depression, domestic violence and abusive relationships, they talk about the cyber bullying, the danger of the cyber dating and the negative side of the social media, death, lost love and sadness.
Of course, they try to help to get out from this negative situation, therefore the sad song always shows a happier outgoing.
