NOIA‘s “Nostalgia Del Futuro” is out now on Cascine.
September… The leaves are escaping from the trees, the sun becomes lazy and sleeps more and more. This is probably why we enjoy the Indian summer so much, because these warm days are the last ones. NOIA, a Spanish artist who is now based in Brooklyn and whose real name is Gisela Fulla-Silvestre, just released the soundtrack of these last moments: “Nostalgia Del Futuro.”
Starting with cracking sounds and reverb, the track in itself is, like its title, a beautiful oxymoron. The marimba, an instrument from Central America which is made of wood, quickly makes an appearance and brings us an ounce of peacefulness that is at times reminiscent of an ASMR experience. These traditional sounds are quickly mixed with a technoid and Balearic beat but the bouncy cadence never assaults the overall sweetness. It’s a trip to the natural and wild parts of Ibiza, not to its clubs. The whole track navigates between organic and electronic sounds and depicts a beautiful nostalgic trip.
The chorus is particularly catchy, even hypnotic. It is repeated like a melancholic prophecy. NOIA’s voice is bewitching: sweet like a brain massage but enough assured to make us believe that what she predicts for our future will come true. Like a modern saudade-inspired anthem, the artist brings the spleen to another level: what will remain from our ideas and our existence?
