DarkBlueWorld's epic sound has been noted for its paradoxical nature, simultaneously hypnotic and sullen: "blending disturbing lyrics with beautiful melodies... breathing sadness and celebration in the same breath", at times "a thrilling noise assault of feedback and percussion" [CokeMachineGlow]. Their unique "alchemical magic" is completed by Elizabeth's "lushly dismal narratives", ranging harmonically from "a macabre growl to a keening shriek" with "superior range and color" conveyed by her "cigarette-rough voice" [JunkMedia]. This is DarkBlueWorld’s second release on Drip Audio.

DarkBlueWorld is singer/poet Elizabeth Fischer's essential vehicle for her collaborations with noted Canadian musicians. Drawing on Fischer’s texts, expressive vocal style and the wide ranging musical influences the members bring to the group, DarkBlueWorld creates and perform material that is emotionally layered, often acerbic or darkly satirical, with subtly complex harmonic and rhythmic structures - individualized, intelligent expressions intended to communicate the complexities of human experience in sophisticated yet accessible song formats.

All the members of the group are established artists in their own right; a recognized vocalist, composer and lyricist, Elizabeth Fischer is the former leader of the Animal Slaves, a seminal Canadian alternative art-rock band in the 80’s. She has recorded and performed with noted international musicians, has performed Hungarian songs and French chansons, and continues to explore the music of Brecht/Weill and Hans Eisler in a number of contexts. She also creates all of the group's visual material. Gord Grdina, a prolific composer and arranger who also leads his own ensembles, has a deeply lyrical approach to music. He has a keen ear for unusual textures and an eclectic approach to music making which complements Fischer’s musical sensibilities. Tommy Babin has a particular affinity for creative music and Chad MacQuarrie’s expressionistic, aggressive sound compliments Fischer’s darker, edgier material. Bernie Arai is a respected drummer and composer with many international appearances to his credit
