N.O.A.H have returned with their first release since acclaimed EP Echoes of the Night in the form of genuine, nostalgic track 'The Way We Are Told.'
Irish indie-rock trio N.O.A.H are back with a heartfelt, nostalgic new single, 'The Way We Are Told.'
Gentle and emotive, the track stands as an honest, vulnerable account of love and loss. Fuzzed out guitars and a smattering of brass infuse the track with a sense of 80s reminiscence, which when combined with modern indie-pop leanings creates a track that is comfortable, but undeniably new.
"'The Way We Are Told' in a direct sense is a message to a loved one, but can also be that inner dialogue we tend to have when we hit a certain age or come up against one of life's struggles," the band explained. "It's a reminder that even though life is tough and it may not be what you intended when you were younger, you can still do whatever you want to, it's never too late."
"It emphasises that it's ok to cry, it's ok to embark on a new journey, it's ok to feel the pressure of time. We sometimes need to take stock of what we have and remember there is always someone out there that will have your back."
The track follows in the footsteps of their previous releases, as the trio begin to hone in on their sound. Standing as one of the hottest up and coming acts from the island, N.O.A.H have firmly cemented their place as ones to watch.
Beginning in 2020, the group is comprised of three life-long friends who decided to rekindle a musical endeavour into something totally new. Their first release, a 2020 single called 'Shine,' grabbed the attention of Natasha Bent's Mother Artist Live Agency, joining a roster populated by CMAT, Foster the People and Idles.
The song is the first release since their critically acclaimed 2021 EP Echoes of the Night. Their debut, the project saw collaborations from Irish hip hop duo Hare Squead and New Orleans style collective Booka Brass. Produced by Grammy Winner Ruadhri Cushnan, the EP garnered media attention from the likes of Laura Whitmore, RTE2 FM and RTÉ Six One News.
