Noé Solange – Bound (Spotify)

“-Noé Solange- with her new song -Bound- , the opener of her new same titled album, invite us to her ethereal vocal style through minimal assets of beats and harmonies, which are the right one into this laid back trip hop. Giving the right space to enjoy the dreamy places the vocal atmosphere engages here. ”

The track explores the topic of toxic infatuation, contemplation and freedom. The chorus depicts escaping someone’s toxic nature, through words such as “ice melting thin, which you let me sink into” and “warmth coming in, when I float up without you”.

The rhythmic backdrop of sinister synths and shards of silvery electronics with Noé Solange’s serene tones depict a search for light amidst the darkness.

Noé Solange is a London based producer, singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist that delves into the realm of downtempo electronica. From her Dutch/Indonesian heritage and being raised around the world, Noé pulls cultural threads from her upbringing that she blends with electronic elements and harmonic vocals to create a rich tapestry of sounds.
