La Nuit Américaine was born in 1999 following the split of Italian group My Blue Dome. 'La Nuit Américaine' comes from the term for a special cinematographic effect, a particular filter put on the camera permits the director to shoot a scene during the day which obtains a night effect. The light and shade are the basic principles that are applied to his music and lyrics, '...where sounds and words run after each other searching for a momentary balance'. The effect is a captivating mix of instrumentals creating a great atmospheric presence to stunning effect offset by sometimes rough vocals that are dark and eerie reminiscent of Arab Strap and Nick Cave. 'Blue In The Mist' is a new song and the original version of 'A Certain Goobye' appears on the Serenadze album, the version for this release is distinctly different. Limited to 200 numbered copies on orange vinyl! UK import.
