Noga Erez releases her new album ‘KIDS‘ via City Slang. 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.
The 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.
“These are songs about what we inherit from past generations, how we pass things on,” Noga explains about the 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.”
On April 1st and 2nd, Erez will present the world of ‘KIDS’ in two live-streamed events.
“It’s not your typical live show. it’s about pushing the limits” she says. “The making of this performance is a part of the performance itself. An army of dancers, band members & crew become part of the art. This is a world where the visual lines are constantly being blurred. And it will not be replicated.”

Previously released singles from ‘KIDS’ include “End of the Road”, an introspective track about mortality, “VIEWS feat. Reo Cragun & ROUSSO”, lockdown anthem “NO news on TV feat. ROUSSO” and “You So Done” which explores toxic personal relationships.
‘KIDS’ comes packed with outspoken pop anthems for the 21st century. It showcases Noga’s style, growing into a crisp bombastic sound she crafts with her creative and life partner, Ori Rousso. 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.
