New Noah: “Back”

Ahead of a few opening gigs with Liima, Noah has shared a new song called “Back.” The usual adjectives apply — sparse, delicate, fragile, etc etc. — but what stands out is the ability for the song to simply stand on its own. Noah’s work to this point has mostly been centered around EPs and 2015’s stunning Sivutie, and what makes all of those click is how songs work together. “Back,” however, is its own little world, finding Noah drifting over faded piano notes, woodwinds and a few lonely saxophone notes. And then the beat hits, and the song transforms, still as private as before but with a sense of urgency added in. Listen above.
