Cygne Noir - Fade Out

Growing up in a musical family, I remember hearing lots of different styles of music and artists including Sergio Mendes and Joao Gilberto. One of my favorite Bossa Nova albums is Getz/Gilberto.

This is my ode to Bossa Nova. A song called Fade Out about disillusionment and the dangers that await us as a human race.

Cygne Noir - Villians (Rough Mix)

Villians and Angels is a slow building track that starts with piano and vocals. The other instruments are slowly introduced as the song progresses and gets bigger and louder. The first half of the song is driven by a high octave syncopated bass line and a minimalistic drum beat. The vocals are sung low, with an almost Bowieish feel to them. At about the two and half minute mark, the first full chorus appears and the vocals change to a higher octave and a more desperate tone.


Genre: Alt Rock
Style: Experimental Pop, Alternative, Electronic
Mood: Melancholic, Anxious. Alienated and Liberated

Cygne Noir - Love is Not Enough

A song about being in a really bad situation, but you refuse to leave it because you think things will eventually get better. It's like being trapped at the bottom of the ocean.


Genre: Alt Rock
Style: Experimental Pop, Alternative, Electronic
Mood: Melancholic, Anxious, Enlightened

Cygne Noir - Smile at the Sun

Smile at the Sun is a blend of indie rock, 60s soul, shoegaze, funk and synthpop. It's a collection of five songs that sounds like a grittier and poppier The Whitest Boy Alive meets Stevie Wonder with Johnny Marr on guitar. It was heavily influenced by the music that fueled the studio breaks. Stevie Wonder's Songs in the Key of Life, a bunch of stuff produced by Nile Rodgers, The Strokes' Comedown Machine, Air's Virgin Suicides and Daft Punk's Random Access Memories.

Cygne Noir - Halcyon Days Are Here Again!

Happy and with a belly full of wine, at the end of a dinner party at my house, I picked up a guitar and started serenading my guests.

I played a few tracks I was in the process of writing and a few tracks I had written over the years. Then we got into a conversation about music and they asked me why I hadn't recorded or released some of those songs. Although I wasn't sure if they really liked the songs as much as they said they did, or if it was just the alcohol talking, I decided to start recording a few of them the next day.

I spent the next three weeks tracking and re-arranging them and ended up with a collection of songs, written at completely different times of my life. Surprisingly, they all kind of just fit together, at least in theme. It was a wonderful experience which brought back a lot of memories and helped put a little focus on where I wanted to go, musically.
