Unapologetically influenced by the Seattle Scene of the 90s, The Black Tears draw inspiration but carve their own mark into the Grunge Sound.

“They call what they do ‘grunge-pop’, which is not a bad word for it. Accessible songs played with a sound that lies somewhere between heavy rock and garage, rather than harking back too directly to early 90s Seattle, but it has that dark, dirty vibe. It’s loud, it’s heavy, it’s melodic, it’s well played and it’s distinctive: what are you waiting for?”
