Dark Franklin plays dark, irresistibly alluring gothic pop/rock. Visuals swirl out of the speakers. Dark purples and blood reds and silver blues. Combined with lyrics that range from storybook fantasy to inner torment, the music will demand your attention.

The songs have a timeless, adaptable characteristic. They would fit well on any Top 40 chart from the past few decades. The sound has the imagination and psychedelic vibe of 70s rock, the playful techno effects of 80s new wave, and the serious edge of 90s alt rock. Like the visuals it evokes, this music floats through time.

And the lyrics make captivating reading. We start with the story of a vampire walking among society, musing to himself after taking another victim:

So I wonder to myself as all this time goes by me
Of those who remain no one was made before me
I can hear the thoughts of everyone around
One voice, one mind, dancing underground...
