New Music: Isla Noon

A perfect fusion of electro-pop and indie comes courtesy of emerging New Zealand talent Isla Noon.

Evocative of Carly Rae Jepsen, Robyn and Taylor Swift, Isla’s new single ‘I Need To Go Home’ is an irresistibly danceable tune, with synths and sharp beats that percolate underneath an assured and unique vocal.

“The song tells the story of a night out where the illusion of a grand ideal is shattered; that moment you sober up to see a girl crying into her drink, the spilled wine all over the floor drying to a sticky sheen and a few lonely souls looking for connection on a dance floor.  More than anything, it’s a metaphor for confronting times in my life where I’ve pulled back the veneer on things I was taught to accept or expected to enjoy.  The track speaks to a time where I had no choice but to listen to that inner voice – even if it meant leaving on my own.”
