New EP out right now – FALLEN.
Formed in New York City by Athan Maroulis, formerly of Spahn Ranch and Black Tape For A Blue Girl, NØIR have to date issued an acclaimed debut album entitled ‘Darkly Near’ in 2013, a remix album the following year, plus four subsequent EPs that have included at least one cover of a classic glam/new wave/goth rock song from the 1970s or 80s. All have been released on Metropolis Records.
Together with regular collaborators that include Erik Gustafson (guitars) and Kai Irina Hahn (keyboards), Maroulis began working on what would eventually become the brand new ‘Fallen’ EP in late 2019, but the pandemic forced a lengthy delay in its recording. Then, as the Covid crisis lifted, the death of Metropolis Records founder and mastermind Dave Heckman further impeded its progress.
