WATCH NOBLE OAK LIVE AT ATELIER 254

March 19, 2020

 

Noble Oak is truly a modern rock artist; the basic elements of its instrumentation are all there, but this group makes no appeal to the atavistic minimalism that once seemed to dominate the genre. They are sleek, shimmering like the stainless steel finish of a state-of-the-art appliance as the delay trails and reverb swells of the guitar and keyboard melt together. The sound of “Morning” is soft yet sophisticated, washed-out yet crisp, and brimming with technological savvy. 

 

Noble Oak’s voice is immediately reminiscent of Thom Yorke and Chris Martin, and it seems clear that he is one of many dreamy, effects-driven artists ready to take up the mantle laid down by bands like Radiohead and Coldplay respectively.

 

Noble also dropped "Just a Game" a week ago, stream that below the video!

Adam Hender’s “I Don’t Mind” is a sulky ode to selfless, unconditional love. He croons his desire to see an unrequited love happy, even apart from him. As hopeless as his cause is, I’m sure its a position almost all of us have been in, one time or another.
