Noire debut album out now

3 October 17

Noire are known across Sydney for their mesmerising, intimate live performances and have now released their debut album “Some Kind of Blue”

Teasingly revealed over the past few months via a pair of singles — the swooning “He’s My Baby” and sparkling “Real Cool” (which vocalist Jessica Mincher unashamedly says serves as “a tribute to Air”) — Some Kind Of Blue blurs the genre-boundaries between spacey synth-laced shoegaze, straight-up indie balladry and even, somewhat unexpectedly, swerves towards something like midnight country rock AM-radio. The latter likely an addition picked up during the writing process, which saw the duo decamp to an isolated farm in rural Queensland, after Mincher attended an inspiring talk from filmmaker Miranda July in early-2016.
