Poorly Built Parachute is a dark-electronica hybrid taking elements from drum n bass, techno, trip-hop, industrial, classical and epic movie scores. The sound is much more than just dark music driven by keys, synths and circuit bended electronics,... it's urbanesque art and visuals, a vibe with little words, and a concept that unfolds upon every album release.

Poorly Built Parachute released their debut album, Evolution In Color, on July 1, 2008 in the United States through Holdfast Records. The album was a 3-year work in progress, beginning with mere experimentation of cheap electronic music software. The hobby quickly turned into something of legitimate interest and before long keys, samples, and voice were recorded and layed down in the mix. Highly influenced by epic movie scores and the masters of electronic rock Nine Inch Nails, Portishead, and Massive Attack, Poorly Built Parachute began to develop a unique sound. Founding member Dave Darr gives acclaim to the metal and hardcore music he grew up on, however he says he's always fancied the idea of playing electronic music one day. After a heavy dive into the electronic music world Poorly Built Parachute has been compared to such acts at Dieselboy, Black Sun Empire, Boards Of Canada, and early-Prodigy.

Tastes Like Sin EP is the second release to come from Poorly Built Parachute and the first featuring Kevin TetuanTetuan contributes circuit-bending and a party-vibe to the sophomore release and plans to work on future releases now making Poorly Built Parachute a two-man project.  Behind the scenes, Chris Riesgo helped produce the Tastes Like Sin EP and contributed a remix of the titles track, "Tastes Like Sin CR-mix".  As a whole, the Tastes Like Sin EP is a representation of where Poorly Built Parachute is taking their sound. The band definitely has "a sound," but strives to embark on different directions with every release.
