NONI WO: “Solarstorm”
Montreal-based NONI WO are releasing their debut U S B EP in a few weeks, and to give us a taste we’ve got their first single. “Solarstorm” is a bizarre blend of atmospheric synths and noodling guitar lines. Set to a simple RnB beat, Rory Wolf Seyfel’s vocal melodies snake around in unusual ways, matching the off-kilter instrumentals. The whole track has an improvisitory feeling. At the 2:30 mark, the guitar loses focus entirely and starts playing a new song. But the synth keeps everything grounded as the track slowly fades away. To match the aimlessness of the music, Tyson Parks has created an enchanting looping visual. Floating globs of liquid swirl around in a slow rotation, mimicking the listless nature of “Solarstorm.”
U S B EP will be out September 9th, but you can pre-order it here.
