BLACK NEEDLE NOISE - Releases New Single Featuring Mimi Page

Legendary producer John Fryer, one of the most innovative sonic architects on the music scene, is releasing new music under his new project Black Needle Noise, dubbed “the spiritual successor to This Mortal Coil” by Cold War Night Life. Best known for his production work, he also branched out as a musician as one of only two constant members of This Mortal Coil (along with Ivo Watts - Russell), providing keyboards, strings and synthesizer sequencing for the band, and its offshoot, The Hope Blister.
In 1979, John Fryer started his career at London’s Blackwing Studios (London) and soon began working with seminal bands on the 4AD, Mute, Rough Trade and Beggars Banquet record labels, including Depeche Mode, The Wolfgang Press and Cocteau Twins. His achievement in helping develop the latter’s pioneering ethereal and ambient sound ultimately led Watts-Russell to recruit Fryer as his partner for This Mortal Coil.
He has produced many other groundbreaking artists, including Yaz (Yazoo), Nine Inch Nails, Clan Of Xymox, Nitzer Ebb, Love And Rockets, Xmal Deutschland, Fields Of The Nephilim, De/Vision, Stabbing Westward, Swans, HIM, Cradle Of Filth, Jesus Jones, Swallow and many others. More recent projects involve Dead Leaf Echo and The Foreign Resort.
Over the past two decades, John Fryer has also produced several film soundtracks, including Seven, Clerks, Johnny Mnemonic, Mortal Kombat, Faust and Resident Evil: Apocalypse.
The latest Black Needle Noise single "Swimming Through Dreams" features renowned ethereal vocalist Mimi Page, who recently co-wrote and contributed vocals and programming on four tracks from Delirium’s 15th studio album Mythologie, which debuted at #7 on Billboard's Electronic charts. Based in Los Angeles, she is also a singer-songwriter and composer of cinematic dream worlds. This is a hypnotic ethereal track with swirling echoed croons, layered over a bed of textured dreamy electronica.
Long-time fans of John Fryer’s musical output will be drawn to his trademark sound, and new listeners will love the layered richness, experimental tones, effects and melodies. Informed by decades of sound-crafting, the advent of Black Needle Noise marks Fryer’s continuous and ever-evolving move into the future. Black Needle Noise is releasing singles one by one towards the next album. Other recent singles feature Jarboe from Swans, Canadian-born songwriter/guitarist Jennie Vee (she also plays bass in Courtney Love's band Hole), as well as Omniflux of Puscifer, Kendra Frost of Kite Base, Andrea Kerr of Colt, Elena Alice Fossi of Kirlian Camera, and Zialand, among others. The single "Swimming Through Dreams" is available as "name your price" digital download at this location. As well you can give it a listen in the player below.
