Having gained something akin to cult status last year when their paranormal love song Ghost Story was featured on the creepy hit podcast Welcome to Night Vale, dark and quirky alt-folk duo Charming Disaster, based in Brooklyn, NY, are hitting the road to promote their debut album, Love, Crime & Other Trouble.
Inspirations for the album include the wonderful gothic humor of Edward Gorey, the noir storytelling of Raymond Chandler, the stylish aesthetic of French new wave film, the murder ballads of the Americana tradition, and the dramatic flair of the cabaret. Each song creates a new universe for two characters whose narrative plays out against a shifting backdrop of nightclubs, car chases, circus tents, the afterlife, and beyond.
