Watchlist: Dark Tea "Dark Tea"

Dark Tea is the New York by way of LA singer-songwriter project of industry veteran Gary Canino. He delivered his latest LP Dark Tea on February 25th via Don Piano Enterprises.



A folksy mix of minimal acoustic instrumentation and almost-modern Bob Dylan style vocals, 2022's Dark Tea is full of intricate narrative and vivid detail. Fan favorite "Academy Award" is an eccentric patchwork of jazz, 1970s easy listening, and enigmatic lyrics, while additional standout "Silent Sister" is a cutting ode to pioneer art rockers The Velvet Underground.


Dark Tea recently finished a nationwide tour with indie superstars Current Joys, bookended by their February 27 album release show in Los Angeles.
