{New Single} Messages By Dreams – Black Needle Noise with Attasalina

Inspired by psychedelic journeys and times gone by, this song is a tribute to the roots of gothic/industrial and the incredible and oft unsung trailblazers who have had such profound influence and continue to inspire music and culture around the world…

In collaboration with iconic producer John Fryer (This Mortal Coil, Depeche Mode, NIN, Love & Rockets…)

“Messages by Dreams is soulful dreampop; a tangle of barbed wire and muslingauze that unwinds only by tearing into fibres.”
– Cold War Night Life

“Before The Tears Came not only feels like a 4AD title, it actually sounds like one as well. In fact, you can say Black Needle Noise made the fourth album that This Mortal Coil never made.” – Peek-A-Boo
