Although Noah Kwid is no stranger to the music scene, he has recently set out on his own, and is revving up to release his 4-track debut solo Transit Music EP on November 25th. Despite the fact that it’s now autumn – or maybe in spite of that fact – we’ve got the exclusive premiere of his track “Spring” right here.
Quirky, layered instrumentals hit staccato notes, serving as an introduction to Noah’s sung/spoken vocals. They set the tone for the song by embarking with us on an a narrative journey, notable lyrics being “I am the ocean, I am the sea.” When the synth hits, there is a distinct 80’s throwback feel to the song, and we’re taken back to the days of after school PBS specials and bright, geometric illustrated visuals dancing in our heads. Stereogum noted “a competing sense of light and dark,” which holds prevalent over the duration of the track. We’re big fans of the white noise sound mid-track, and the fact that we can’t quite place the best way to enjoy “Spring”.
But we’re definitely about introduce it to an undisclosed family member of an older generation tonight at dinner.
Transit Music is out November 25th, just in time for the holidays. Feel free to enjoy some other releases until then here.
