Inspired by such goth bands as the Cure, Siouxsie & the Banshees, and the Sisters of Mercy, Payne's Grey traffics in darkly ambient goth rock with touches of metal, electronica, and industrial seeping in.

The Dallas, TX, band began in the early '90s when singer and multi-instrumentalist Murdock Scott and guitarist and multi-instrumentalist Shawn O'Neill began collaborating. The two gigged frequently at the 500 Café in Dallas, playing strange experimental music, even banging on hub caps.

In 2002, nearly a decade after the duo formed, Payne's Grey released their debut album, Pull It Down.
