I’ve been following Spanish musician NOIA since her debut EP back in 2016. Her song “Nostalgia del Futuro” is still on constant rotation for me – listen to that HERE. I actually saw her open for El Guincho in 2017 and that combo was seriously one of the best shows I’ve seen all decade. Keep that in your head as BEST OF THE DECADE lists roll around.
NOIA just released a new EP CRISÀLIDA via Cascine and it’s fire. It drifts slightly away from her straightforward pop approach on her previous EP, but cements her songwriting and arrangement ability with innovative and engaging tunes with lots of sounds and textures I haven’t heard anywhere else. This song above was the second single, so you know it’s good.
