Ten years on – ‘Injuns’ who became ‘ The Dead Man’s Waltz’ are back – four musicians from the Isle of Skye who are re-imagining their traditions into a style they call ‘folk-noir’. Their music traces a path through the dance halls of Weimar Republic Germany, Kurt Weill and Hans Eisler, though Tom Waits and the Pogues to more recent acts such as Yann Tiersen and Beirut.
Using song, storytelling and film, their music describes a weird arc of destruction and menace through the history of the last century. Theirs is a litany of small-town crimes and dark romances that is fascinating and irresistable.
“The Dead Man’s Waltz find the common ground between the bleak tragedy of the island folk ballads and the more flamboyant execution of the European cabaret tradition.”
