Israeli singer-songwriter-producer Noga Erez releases “Fire Kites (LIVE),” a standout track from her new album ‘KIDS’ out now via City Slang.
The visual is a cut from her live stream shows that featured a cast of 25 dancers, strobe lights, and an exhilarating performance from Noga and her life and creative partner Ori Rousso. Industry superstars like Finneas, Haley Williams, Jorge Drexler, Sofi Tukker and Meghan Trainor tuned in to watch the performance, and “Fire Kites” showcases Noga’s slick moves and flaunts her “self-possessed brand of cool” (AV Club).
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.
‘KIDS’ comes packed with chart-worthy outspoken pop anthems for the 21st century. It showcases Noga’s style, growing into a crisp bombastic sound she crafts with 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.
