The Sons Of Robert Mitchum
Belfast, County Antrim
A Belfast and Berlin based neo-noir, multinational - five piece, delivering songs and music tainted in darker subject matter, with the influential tones of Cave, Waits, Brel and Slivovica. Since 2011 their profile has risen with gigs and festival appearances in Ireland, UK and mainland Europe.
Happily devoted to misery, depression, melancholy, alienation, bleakness, disillusionment, despair, cynicism, pessimism, ambiguity, moral corruption, evil, guilt, desperation, paranoia, existentialism and doomed love.
I found it absolutely enthralling and quite unique in style to anything I've heard...Al Gilmore ...Chordblossom Magazine
Spellbinding, intense and beautifully dark
Anna Romanowska, Szczecin Gazeta
Their uniqueness lies in the sincerity and consistency of a performance which presents concepts that do not dazzle with unnecessary emotions; a beautiful, bitter story.
They're not confined to the interpretation of melancholy, dark convention, but build on and move freely between definitions, combining jazz, folk, rock and other sonic influences
