My Dear 04:57
A Forest 04:22


noir (nwär) or (nwar)
adjective French.

1. Black; noting the black numbers in roulette.
2. Relating to the film noir genre and or of crime literature featuring tough, cynical characters in dark settings.
3. Suggestive of danger or violence.

New York City is a world of shadows, thieves and con men, its chilling concrete landscapes are a fitting filmic backdrop for the aural futuristic pleasures of NOIR, a band whose deep electronic rhythms fuel darkened beats that conjure stark cinematic images from yesteryear merged with the cold machinery of the future. Conceptualized by vocalist Athan Maroulis, veteran of the pioneering industrial act Spahn Ranch, NOIR is a sensuous electronic return to form for Maroulis, who also fronted Black Tape For a Blue Girl. NOIR combines the bleak irony of Weegee photos, fleshly lyrics, empty subway stations and the dark sarcasm of Rod Serling into a collection of dancefloor interludes. NOIR's debut 2012 single "My Dear" boasts remixes by Assemblage 23, Ego Likeness and trance legends ManMadeMan along with a cover of The Cure's "A Forest."

Dedicated to our cover model Musidora (1889-1957)


released November 20, 2012
