Tel-Aviv singer-songwriter and producer Noga Erez has shared her highly anticipated second 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. 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.
“These are songs about what we inherit from past generations, how we pass things on,” Noga comments. “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.”
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 her creative and life partner, Ori Rousso. The new 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.
'End of the Road' follows the sparkling sass of 'VIEWS feat. Reo Cragun & ROUSSO', the irresistibly upbeat lockdown anthem 'NO news on TV feat. ROUSSO' and 'You So Done', which explores toxic personal relationships, seeing Erez continue to address serious subjects without compromising catchiness.
