Kiwi artist Noah Slee unveils ‘Sunrise’ ahead of the release of his debut LP ‘Otherland’ due on August 25 via Majestic Casual.
New Zealand artist Noah Slee is known for challenging the meaning of soul music. Influenced by Bob Marley, Marvin Gaye, Billie Holiday and Fela Kuti; Slee likes to remind us that Thom Yorke‘s ‘The Eraser’ is actually the track that he considers as formative to the sound he came to compose today. Noah Slee has also a Tongan heritage and lived in Brisbane for a while before relocating to Berlin. More than music, the artist is coming with a piece of life and experience. On his upcoming debut album ‘Otherland’, that he produced with Ben Esser, Slee promises ‘a soulful exploration of freedom and spiritual progression’.
Ahead of this release, here comes the soulful single ‘Sunrise’ which should please all the fans of Anderson .Paak, Jordan Rakei and Thundercat. About this track, the artist detailed:
It’s just one of them days, we all go through them. Reminding myself of how ‘Sunrise’ came together is definitely going back to maybe not the happiest times. Too many long nights, personal struggles and really being tested with life throwing me huge boulders and pushing me to my edge. Seeing the sunrise was definitely a highlight during these times.
