Folk noir was a term originally coined by photographer David Mearns in the 1980's to describe the music of mid-period Sol Invictus. It is generally related to Tursa Records-related bands. It is sometimes found on webzines as a more neutral term, without the specific connotations of "neofolk", but the meaning is largely the same though the usage of the term noir hints at an overall dark subject matter. The term has had a resurgence in 2007 to describe the glamorous, theatrical melancholia of folk artists such as Catherine Ann Davies and Delirium Tremens in the underground London singer-songwriter scene. Other vague terms sometimes used to describe artists of this genre include "dark folk" and "pagan folk". These terms are umbrella terms that also describe various other forms of unrelated music.
