Kick starting the year with the strong intent he plans to continue with, rising artist Noir delivers his first offering of the year, with the smooth and captivating single release, ‘Down For It’.
With elements of Pop and Electronica sounds present throughout, Noir’s eclectic vocal range can be heard against the backdrop of a futuristic and colourful visual in tow, as he remains strong in his presence in the company of talented dancers, commanding their attention, as he repeatedly questions “are you down for it?”
Born in Lagos and being of African heritage, it is this city that gave Noir his love for music from a young age. Having grown up in a musical family, the classic sounds of the likes of Fela, King Sunny Ade, and Ebenezer Obey soon became a strong impact, all of which further fed his ambition to become a performer himself.
Citing legendary artists such as Prince, Usher, Daft Punk, Aaliyah, Brandy, and Nina Simone as heavy influences in his music, his knowledge of his craft, along with taking the time to perfect his own sound over the years has resulted in ‘Down For It’ being the perfect teaser for this year’s forthcoming EP release.
With more new music set for the months ahead and a strong vision for his brand across music and fashion, Noir is definitely one to watch for the foreseeable.
‘Down For It’ is available now via all major platforrms.
