Darkstar uses an eclectic mix of styles and influences. Something for every phase of your day or life. Alternative/Pop/Rock/Funk. From the electric, haunting sounds of "no no no", to the raunchy agressive tone of "do you still care?" The sound of Darkstar is hard to describe. That is why he balks at being classified as alternative. He finds the term a bit constricting; the fear of being pigeon-holed into a certain style of music. Darkstar believes life is a cinematic experience, with music as its soundtrack. Won't you join us? When the Dark outshines the Light and all is lost, who shall guide you? But...I was never meant to guide you.
