DUST BOWL FAERIES, Dark Carnival Dream Music.
A faerie-tale fusion of dark cabaret, gothic polka and macabre post-punk music, Dust Bowl Faeries is a dark carnival band from the NY Hudson Valley. The band’s repertoire draws inspiration from circus songs, murder ballads and European folk tunes. Accordion, saw, percussion and guitar creates the Dust Bowl Faeries otherworldly sound.
“You can almost smell the gas lamps in the street & the absinthe being poured.” Americana Highways
