"haunting and somber vibe (...) melancholic and bittersweet"
(Huffington Post)

"lush, melancholic soundscapes with a caustic edge (...) paired well with each vocalist"

Founded in 1995, the Electro Noire Pop band no:carrier evolved from harsh EBM tracks to Dark Wave/Electropop songs with the band's main singer Cynthia Wechselberger and original member Chris Wirsig. Today the band includes different singers, lending their unique vocals to the emotive, often melancholy songs.

no:carrier & Scilla
When an acclaimed electro pop project get's together with an accomplished jazz/pop artist to venture into Trip Hop, you can expect the result to be captivating and emotive. That's what no:carrier & Scilla deliver on their debut EP "Chasing Tears": Songs in the vein of Portishead, Massive Attack and Morcheeba, but with a modern flavor - dark, somber, emotive. From deep fears of regret and failure, to stories of breakups, emancipation and somber emotions.
