* Ditto Ronnie Martin of JoyElectric. Perhaps he doesn't want to sound out of place among all those synthesizers.

* Anders Friden from InFlames, when he's not [[HarshVocals growling]], uses a vocal style that is very reminiscent of this trope despite InFlames being a MelodicDeathMetal band. (although their later work incorporates greater levels of AlternativeMetal.

* Brian Molko of {{Placebo}}, moreso in earlier songs. * The Wygal sisters of {{Splendora}} were queens of the alt-rock monotone, which is almost certainly why they got to do the theme song for ''{{Daria}}''.

* OKGo tends towards this, but the level of "perishing" varies between songs. The most evident example is probably their cover of TheCure's "The Lovecats," which is [[IntercourseWithYou fairly obviously]] of the "sexed-out bliss" variety.

* NickDrake may not be the TropeMaker (Lou Reed and John Cale probably have a heavier claim) but he could certainly qualify as one of the {{Trope Codifier}}s.

* TK from LingTositeSigure sings with a falsetto so often that it's become his SignatureStyle.

* Jack White with his Music/TheWhiteStripes, side project bands and solo careers. ''Especially'' live. One moment he's droning in monotones, the next he's screaming with the utmost control, the next moment he could ''start preaching to the crowd''. Also count his guitar; he's wrings out every note worthy of being in the song.

Basically, this trope is the difference between e.g.[[SonicYouth Ciccone Youth's]] version [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EUCLoPFvNKY "Into the groove"]] and {{Madonna}}'s [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ne3wtH9aym0 original]].

The PerishingAltRockVoice may be interspersed with {{Metal Scream}}s and Stuttering Wailing; it also frequently leads to {{Mondegreen}}s and IndecipherableLyrics, as well as SomethingSomethingLeonardBernstein. A staple of {{Grunge}} and ShoeGazing, as well as the bread and butter of DreamPop, with a tendency to make surprise appearances in {{Industrial}}. May overlap in use with Emo Whispering and {{Yarling}}: while it's easy to sound perishing if you're singing nasally [[note]]because you're actually blocking the nose and thereby getting less air [[/note]], a lot of perishing singers (like Music/MyBloodyValentine, or Thom from {{Radiohead}}) aren't nasal at all, and (as per above) they're usually far from emoting overtly. Not infrequently crosses over into CreepyMonotone or DissonantSerenity. Related to ThreeChordsAndTheTruth, in that the more fanatical ones regard polished, full-bodied singing as fake and scratchy singing as authentic.

* For the Music/VelvetUnderground, there's Lou's dry version (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6xcwt9mSbYE ) and Music/{{Nico}}'s Euro-dirge one (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_KiU5P4ihIQ ). John Cale also definitely qualifies, as does his replacement, Doug Yule. TheVelvetUnderground may well be the {{Trope Maker}}s.
