Darkness Falls “Night Games”
Copenhagen indie rock duo Darkness Falls has their song “Night Games” tagged as “pop noir” on Soundcloud. I usually find it silly when musicians insist on using weird tags on Soundcloud (tagging something as “music for lovers!!” for example), but “pop noir” is a faux genre I can get onboard with. “Night Games” is a song full of darkness, moody smokiness, and silky silhouettes. It’s the type of song you hear while having a long, cold walk through the city while smoking a cigar and doing your best Bogart impression. The song appears on their sophomore album Dance And Cry, which you can stream here. They also have a video out for their single “Dance and Cry,” which combines a little of everything I described above. Now all I need is a fedora and a trench coat.
