Working with London-based producer Kristofer Harris (Bears Den, Belle and Sebastian, Ghostpoet etc.), Chris Noah delivers big choruses, vaporwave influenced synths, thrilling falsettos and fine melodic hooks. The single, accompanied by an official music video, is part of artist’s latest EP ‘Distance Deluxe’.

‘This Is The Night’ is inspired by an observation of a paradox that is somewhat common these days – when one person in a relationship is too career-focused and both know that because of this, the relationship is destined to failure. Yet the relationship is maintained artificially, as it’s easier to stay together than to say goodbye.

With a huge chorus, gripping melodies and Noah’s authentic voice, ‘This Is The Night’ might be his most all-out-pop track to date. As he puts it:

Although I’m not trying to be tied down to one specific genre, especially in the writing process, it did take some convincing from Kristofer to take the track in this direction rather than in a more alternative/indie one. I truly think that we got the best out of the song.

In the bridge, Noah takes listeners through a different sonic scenery, flexing his falsetto where momentarily you can even hear a Bon Iver influence, before it comes back to the big chorus, repeating the phrase that will remain stuck in your head long after.

Chris Noah is a Riga-based recording artist who gracefully combines indie rock with catchy pop. His guitar-driven sound, authentic voice and gripping melodies have made him highly popular in his homeland. After playing some of the biggest festivals in Latvia (Positivus, Summer Sound, etc.), Reeperbahn Festival in Germany, Tallinn Music Week and landing support slots for artists like Tom Odell, LP and The Naked And Famous, Noah has proved himself as one of the most promising export acts of the region.  

Chris Noah first gained attention with self-released singles ‘River‘ and ‘Fall Through‘ – receiving praise for his distinctive vocals, relatable lyrics and strong sense of melody from a variety of blogs including: Indie Air, AlexRainBirdMusic, Uranium Waves, Comeherefloyd, Aofd3, Mystic Sons, York Calling, Wolf in a Suit and many others.
