Noah

北海道出身の音楽家。子どもの頃から慣れ親しんできたピアノの繊細さ、印象的なビートとR&Bの要素、VaporwaveのLo-Fiさとノスタルジーが同居する彼女の楽曲には、妖艶さと可憐さを併せ持った独創的な個性が形作られている。3枚のミックステープに続くファーストアルバム「Sivutie」を2015年にリリース。英ガーディアンでMura Masa、Little Simz、Tinkらと共に同年のBest New Bands5組に選ばれるなど注目を集める。イギリスのプロデューサーkidkanevilとのプロジェクトnemui pjや、Teams、Repeat Patternと共にコンセプトアルバム「KWAIDAN」のリリース、SELA.やJoni Voidへの客演を経て、4年ぶりの新作「Thirty」を今年リリース。

Noah grew up in Hokkaido, an idyllic snowy place and Japan’s northernmost island. The environment, as it would, had a deep impact on Noah—and it’s her surroundings that inform her music to this day.

Noah’s smoke-hazed voice weaves like a phantom through her music, always varied: a product of her environment and all the years leading up to its moment of creation. Whether it’s delicate childlike piano, an R&B feel with looping beats, or the lo-fi nostalgic of vaporwave, her tracks resound with energy and beauty.

With multiple releases on FLAU up until now, Thirty arrives after 2015’s Sivutie which won praise from the likes of Guardian’s Best New Band 2015, The FADER and NYLON. Noah has also worked with the likes of LA-based producer SELA., Constellation’s French-Canadian producer Joni Void and British glitch extraordinaire Kidkanevil as nemui pj. Currently, after a stint of living in Aichi, she resides in Tokyo.

The promise of every really important and great pop music. Noah is closer to that promise than almost everyone else – Groove

Her production lends itself to scenic ambience that mixed with her classical training make for a sound as beautiful as it is reminiscent – Portals

Noah lays minimal classical piano with pattering beats and wispy, sure vocals – a beautiful spare song with a longing pull; one for warm hearths and hearts.  Dazed and Confused

Noah mixes subtle piano, southern hip-hop, static loops, and dream-pop melodies, weaving her sonic threads into a delicately gorgeous tapestry of sound- International Tapes

The soundscape she creates is layered and full of air, it lets you take a breath and relax – Rodeo Magazine

intimate, crouching, lethargic ambient-pop with experimental flair and oriental elementPorcys

a strong pop sensibility to Burial’s isolation-strangled garage. In a better world, Jessie Ware’s voice would blossom from the hazed female vocals..- A Chart Attack
