Ethereal, evocative, powerful and introspective, Black Tape For A Blue Girl’s 13 studio albums meld sweeping darkwave, neoClassical and ambient. Since their debut in 1986, they’ve utilized multiple genres and instrumentations to shape their larger conceptual work, the eclectic approach refreshes BlackTape’s pioneering musical sentiments while maintaining the unique originality of their sound. Foreboding atmospherics and engaging lyricism inform a contemplative twilight which hangs over their tracks.
As the premier artist on the American Projekt record label he founded in the early 80s, Sam Rosenthal’s BlackTape releases lush, deeply introspective music.
