With a short discography, consisting of only three albums – the last of which was released in 2010 –, with a superior number of compilations, they succeed in leaving their mark on the genre, at least in a regional scale. With a somber style, characterized by a melancholic and pungent sonorous eloquence, No Tears has really ignited a virtuous level of relevance, in what concerns their ability of impressing a darker sound to the genre, that succeeded in capturing a pervasive, but exhilaratingly intense affinity that exhibits in an innocent harmonious grace each and every abyss resting below the corporeally hidden notes of the music.
Now reduced to a duo – Kristian Dernoncourt and Paul Fiction – the lack of releases in recent years does not mean that the band is inactive: they can be followed in social media, as sporadically they post press and music related material in their official FB page.
No Tears is the legitimate case of a band that not only deserved to be better known to the general public inside their own home country, they also deserved to have launched internationally. And this was a serious possibility for No Tears, since they sing in english. With an interesting history, a decent degree of originality, and a gracious talent for composing good music, they deserved to have had more exposure. Being like a darker version of Simple Minds and Duran Duran, the elusive and pessimistic side of new wave emerged quite right with No Tears, that should have been one of the best representatives of the genre in their home country. Now, there is one question to be answered: they will fall into despondency, or there is the possibility of a new album in the future?
