Dark of Days is a creative breakthrough for Bourbon Princess. "The album is more pop yet darker than anything we've done," says frontwoman Monique Ortiz. "That might seem contradictory, but I think we've pulled it off." "The first two albums were about personal things. This one is less self absorbed. 'Dark of Days' is really about the political times we're all living through now. 'Cliche' is social commentary, written from the point of view of a single woman struggling to make a living, not ready to give up and yet not being able to see the light at the end of the tunnel for all of her efforts. I think plenty of us are feeling that way today." Dark of Days is also the first full-length collaboration between Monique and Paul Q. Kolderie (producer/engineer for Radiohead, Hole, Morphine, and many others), who manned the console. "It was a great partnership," she says. "He could hear what we were trying to do with our sound and made it more expansive and clear. Since Paul is a bass player, too, it was easier for me to convey the sound I wanted to capture, which is very bass driven, without compromising the other instruments."
