Founded by Salmi, Mikko Patama, Petri Kytö and Ranieri Scoccia, Finnish–Italian electronic pop band NOOA’s music combines skillful sound design with clever pop melodies and straight-forward, bold lyrics. The chaotic sounds of Rome meeting the relative tranquility of Helsinki. Salmi’s lyrics meditate on different sides of the human condition and our relationship with the here and now, the past and the future.
“’Wanderer’ talks about being an outsider, a feeling we all share to some extent, and this idea of always having to be more or have more in order to belong or to be accepted,” the singer/lyricist Noora Salmi says.
This tracked launched October 9, and band promises to release more music soon.
Queer duo Witch Weather discuss new album and the influence of the DMV on their sound.
Philadelphia-based queer punks Witch Weather have a message for anyone who feels hopeless and worthless: you are not alone. With an irresistible sound that draws from 80’s goth and lo-fi grunge, the indie duo wears their heart on their sleeve, giving voice to complex emotions that many would opt to suppress in the recesses of their minds.
Join Alchemical Records as they connect with Witch Weather to discuss the band’s new self-titled album, their search for a sense of belonging as members of the queer community, the important element that keeps the duo’s creative bond strong, and the influence of the DMV on their sound.
