Film Noir

I remember this band from when they were new. An interview with them asked after their main sources of inspiration, and the one I remember them naming was 1940s film noir. Well, I liked that stuff too.

It's clearly 1990s from the sound, but there is something that harkens back to those movies. Still, it is subtle enough that I'm not sure exactly what.

I remember them too- yes, early 90's. Tonal, low key, ebbing and flowing along, I think those are some of the qualities that seem to be drawn from film noir. A lack of definition as a mode of being.

Funny thing is, most of their music is very similar. I can't even figure out which song I used to like (never bought them).
