DogSled Music Group, known for its global full-service platform for independent artists, has signed popular African soul-rock band Dark Suburb.
The award-winning Ghanaian soul-rock band Dark Suburb takes mid-2000s alternative influences and combines them with character-driven stage presence, African masquerade, and social philosophy. The talented band is set to make waves both in their homeland and in the US market. Combining an uplifting attitude with intensity and powerful, husky vocals, Dark Suburb creates a fresh and atmospheric take on rock music. Dark Suburb consists of lead singer Kankan Bizing, guitarists Shamba and Samory Toure, drummers Shaka Zulu and Alfanso, bassist Khama, and keyboardist Akhenaten.
Inspired by Western acts such as Coldplay and Linkin Park and other African rock and metal acts, Dark Suburb delivers an eclectic sound that will have listeners hooked. With skeleton masks and rock music, some have pinned Dark Suburb as occult-similar to acts like Black Sabbath, but in truth, the band portrays a heroic and benevolent force with the skeleton as a symbol of equality. This shows their human similarities beyond ethnic or national boundaries with unity, which is much more than skin deep.
