Football references might be lame AF but Noah Slee is a special one indeed. Much more than that new R&B kid on the blog his is the ability to defy any notion of time and tempo with nothing but a few heartfelt words and his spacedout falsetto. His debut EP To Your Inner Hippie & Cos You Fly As Fuck (written on his birthday card from his homie) is set to drop on January 29th on Berlins SoulForce Records. Its been an eventful year for Noah Slee. Only a couple of months ago the New Zealandraised singer connected with Berlin production team KitschKrieg and found a new home amidst the citys thriving creative scene. Since then he has toured with Hiatus Kaiyote and Fat Freddys Drop laid down vocals at the storied Abbey Road Studios and collected praises from the likes of Noisey and Afropunk for his breakout single Cant Let Go & the follow up Sink. Most importantly though he has found a sound. His sound. To Your Inner Hippie & Cos You Fly As Fuck marks the next step in his evolution. Noah takes cues from a blurry past to create something that firmly points into the future. From the sparse folky instrumentation of I See You to the lush synthfueled slomotrap on Sweetest his songs defy any notion of time and space truly settling into their own tone and tempo. Never is a feverish love letter written by insomnia. Rampant is classic soul framed by a subtly triumphant hiphop beat. And Cant Let Go is gospel in its essence fuelled by yesterdays pain and the sounds of tomorrow. The EPs six songs are about breaking up breaking down and finding love again when happiness feels like a dream long lost. Its about the inbetweens of hope and hate anguish and joy old and new. More than a storyteller Noah Slee is a storyembodier: filling every note every line every damn syllable with (real) life and meaning. To Your Inner Hippie & Cos You Fly As Fuck was written and produced in collaboration with KitschKrieg with one additional contribution from fellow Berliner Ben Esser. Imagine the Dungeon Family on a field trip around Berlins night clubs crossed with an electrified reincarnation of the Soulquarians all with an unapologetic Kreuzberg attitude and a deep love for the Innanets posteverything state of mind. From the basement from the heart. To your inner hippie because you too are fly AF.
