Deidre -- who also performs with the groups Savoir Adore and French Horn Rebellion -- recently expanded her own project to become the band Deidre & The Dark. Like a noir-inspired New Wave film come to life, the group touches on the blues, gypsy music, surf rock, 60s a-go-go and more behind their femme fatale singer. As the group celebrates the release of their "Classic Girl/Don't Blame Me Now" 7 inch, Deidre reveals some of the concept behind the project, explains how she creates characters, and shares what it's like to grow up with an organist mom and a synth-obsessed dad. /// Featured song: “Classic Girl” /// The “Classic Girl” 7 inch is available now. /// Complete radio broadcast and playlist: http://b-t-r.co/OSJmw3 /// Official website: http://www.deidremusic.com/ /// Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/deidreandthedark /// Twitter: @deidremusic
