May 6, 2015 Noah – Flaw
One of our favorite new artists — Northern Japan’s Noah, follows up her soothing, dreamy, third mixtape MOOD with the equally mesmerizing “Flaw” — the first single from her debut full-length Sivutie. Her label Flau explains about the record, “Sivutie, which is a Finnish word – means “side road”, is conceived based on an unique concept – a girl’s mysterious world in a night dream…Noah gently blended in the musical influences she carefully absorbed – the piano pieces she listened during childhood, the choir harmony from churches, soundtrack of French animation films, 90’s trip-hop, R&B music, and and she transformed all these into some cinematic and yet tantalizing sounds with full imagination.” Sivutie is out June 22; grab “Flaw” here now.
