Candid Badge is all about darkness and joy, melody and melancholy. The music is folk inspired rock \'n roll draped in a somewhat darkened sound. Enjoy! Candid Badge first formed in 2005 with Christian Bøvra as the sole member - managing all the tools. The earliest work was mostly dark acoustic music, and though the acoustic elements still shine through, the newer songs have a much more folk-rock sound to them. The Stripped EP contains mainly acoustic music, with a dark and haunting feel to it.
