Noa Opens Up About Love With Latest Single, ‘Patience’

Sporting a colourful yet edgy vibe, NOA‘s latest single, ‘Patience’ is probably her most honest work to date…the song is an introduction to the Canadian singer/songwriter and her relationship to love.

Noa explains: “I grew up with divorced parents, which didn’t give me the most ideal picture of love. With “Patience,” I dove deep into where my reservations with relationships lie, and the difficulty I had with letting my guard down; which I know is something many of us share.”

Noa also produced ‘Patience’ as an anthem for anyone opening up to love and learning to have the courage to be vulnerable. Check it out below…

Song of the Day: Seven – EFÉ

A lo-fi / RnB singer songwriter from Dublin, EFÉ draws on influences such as SZA and Zack Villere. Dropping a handful of tracks as Anita via Soundcloud in 2019, she now returns in a new guise (pronounced Eff-Ay) to bring her bedroom soul sound to a wider audience.

Her first release is the remastered version of ‘Seven’, one of those early songs. Given an update by Chemo of KMJ45 Studios (Rag n Bone Man, Four Owls, Roots Manuva, Rodney P), the track serves as a perfect introduction to this astonishing artist and will usher in a period of activity that will culminate in a debut EP .

Check out the video for ‘Seven’ below…

Song of the Day: Crying (Cover) – KYŁO

Hailing from Toronto, KYŁO‘s cover of Roy Orbison’s ‘Crying’ is hardly recognizable to the original. She adds a sultry and melancholic vibe to the 60’s classic paired with chillingly faint vocals. Have a listen below:

Peter Katz Promotes Self-Love With Brand New Single, ‘I Will Never Leave You’

When Canadian singer/songwriter PETER KATZ  first penned his single, ‘I Will Never Leave You’, alongside Grammy-Award winning writer and producer Rich Jacques, he thought it was for someone else. However, further along the process, it became very clear that the person he was writing for was himself.

Katz explains further of his new single: “Oftentimes the first person we sacrifice is ourselves, which ultimately means we can’t be of service to anybody. I’ve certainly been guilty of this at times. The whole writing experience had me so far out of my comfort zone that I felt like I wasn’t confined to any rules of what a Peter Katz song is supposed to sound like.”

Through ‘I Will Never Leave You’ Peter hopes to spread the lesson of self love to others. Have a listen below…

EP Review: Turns Out We Should have Stayed At Home – Lucky Iris

Consisting of vocalist Maeve Florsheim and instrumentalist Jasper Exley, electro pop duo LUCKY IRIS‘ EP, ‘Turns Out We Should Have Stayed At Home’, maybe a concept collection that promises a blinding night out that didn’t go to plan, but it’s far from a disappointment (sorry for giving the game away way too early!)

The ‘sparkyness’ of single, ‘Get Ready With Me’, kicks off the EP with its distinctive intermittent electronic flow that gives off a ‘bright eyed and bushy tail’ sensation. Changing the EP’s mood completely, comes the intimate setting of second effort, ‘Take 5 (Why Can’t You See Me)’ where the lone, melancholic piano keys along with Florsheim’s woeful vocal performance, which somewhat gives off a jazzy/bluesy vibe, mirrors the image of watching everyone enjoying themselves in which you don’t feel a part of.

Picking up the tempo is ‘Glitter Vision’ with its feathery soft four-on-the-floor pattern, leading to a jarringly delightful drive, which tells of the moment where you attempt to make a night of it. Concluding the EP is ‘I Fell Backwards’, another intimate, piano-led piece, which reflects on a disastrous night through Florsheim’s heartfelt vocals which gains strength and becomes soulful.

With ‘Turns Out We Should Have Stayed At Home’, the duo offers some solace to an experience that we all had in some point on our lives, through pleasantly experimental numbers and classic pieces that will be well received by a wider audience. Definitely worth a trial…have a listen below…
