The Dark Sinatras' unique sound, sometimes ominous and sinister, sometimes tinged with ethnic theatre, was originally forged in the cold, unforgiving clime of Russia's punk clubs. There Mark White met Eduard Laubinger and a musical partnership was formed. When Mark returned to England he was introduced to Paul Turner of Jamiroquai and after a recording session and independent films, the eclectic trio 'The Dark Sinatras' was born.

“Full of odd time signatures and eclectic influences, this powerful trio are looking to take the music world by storm. Mark White’s vocals lend an ominous air to his heavy guitar paying, mingling dangerously with the funky bass stylings of Paul Turner of Jamiroquai fame. Ed Laubinger sits calmly behind the drum kit, adding his Kazak gypsy drumming – among a multitude of other instruments – to give this band a wonderful vibrancy. The mix of influences gives the group incredible versatility. Their first album, Sick Society – released in January – delivers track after track of fantastic music, but it’s not all gravely vocals and heavy guitars. ‘Absolution’, ‘Governing Body’ and ‘Local Treason’ form a core of wonderfully varied sounds, moving in order from an apocalyptic, anthemic waterfall of a song, through a chilled-out river of purity and finally into a grungy, head-banging sea of aggression.”
