Discovery: NOEL

Swedish musician NOEL is rapidly establishing himself within the modern musical landscape with his gorgeous alt-pop tunes.

Headed North is NOEL’s second single to be released, but it already sounds incredibly accomplished, creating something truly beautiful here. It’s characterised by a beautiful piano melody, although there are also some lovely backing effects added into the mix, alongside the steady percussion. The track starts out slowly, building up into a rapid crescendo of sounds, creating a track that is incredibly anthemic as a whole. NOEL’s vocals are stunning too, carrying a great deal of soul in this amazing ballad.
