Following the recent announcement of her new album ‘KIDS’ for March 26th release via City Slang, Noga Erez has shared an alternative version of her latest single, “End of The Road”.
This time, it’s a glorious, infectious version of “End of the Road,” showing the track in a different light to the beat-heavy, slick production of the original. “The idea was not to use any ‘machines,'” Noga explains of the series. “No computer, no electronic instruments.”
Building from the raw politics of her 2017 debut, ‘Off The Radar’, ‘KIDS’ moves closer to home while retaining Noga’s signature smarts and swagger. Its earworms and crisp productions are locked around lyrics that deal with the personal and the political; mortality and loss; war and peace, insecurity and ambition.
“These are songs about what we inherit from past generations, how we pass things on,” Noga explains about the upcoming LP.“How this game of evolution of our culture and humanity is very much in our hands. We were all somewhat a blank page at some point. KIDS talks about humanity’s potential for both beauty and destruction.”
‘KIDS’ showcases Noga’s style, growing into a crisp bombastic sound she crafts with her creative and life partner, Ori Rousso. The new album explores themes of tension and release, anxiety and remedy, and masterly melodic licks in swipes of stomping brass, all wrapped around Noga’s versatile vocals that quick-switch from clipped flow to smoky purr; from stadium chorus to street-ready beats.
‘KIDS’ will be released on March 26th via City Slang. Pre-order links here: https://nogaerez.lnk.to/KIDS
