Port Noir goes any way the wind carries

With recording duties again being handled by Daniel Bergstrand, yet at a small mountain village in southern Spain instead of their native Sweden, PORT NOIR's new album “Any Way the Wind Carries” is another bold statement of a band that defies pigeonholing in favour of embracing a vast array of influences and distilling these into smartly arranged, concise songs. Emotive and dramatic hooks, grooving and heavy riffing, atmospheric synths reminiscent of classic 80’s flicks, and Andersson’s passionate vocals make songs like the title-track, “Earth”, “Onyx”, “Diamond” or “Come What May” intense and inventive rock tracks that never lose a sense of the eerie.
Any Way The Wind Carries is out now.
