Noga Erez – Noisy

Noga Erez by Tonje Thilesen

Meet Israel’s newest shining star, Noga Erez.

Channeling desires of escapism in her music, Noga wants to embrace fun, but also discuss thought provoking topics at the same time.

The video for ‘Noisy’ was filmed and shot by Hen Makhluf at the Ralli Museum in the city Noga grew up in, Caesarea, Israel.

“Noisy is a video that tells the story of a group of girls who can create havoc even in the most peaceful and civilized places” Erez explains. “The group of girls represent the noise that exists in our minds, the voices that are always there and prevent clear and rational thought.”

Noga’s album, ‘Off The Radar’ is out now on City Slang.

Donny – Too Crazy To Love You

Donny

A lot of great music has been coming out of Israel. One such contender is Donny, a producer and singer/song-writer who takes inspiration from soul music and turns it on its head with smooth electronic instrumentals.

His new track ‘Too Crazy To Love You’ is about calling it a day “because you realize you’re not doing good for your significant other.”

It’s out now via Majestic Casual Records.

DORJ – Thunder

DORJ

Meet DORJ, an fresh and exciting artist from Tel Aviv.

DORJ studied composition at the Tel Aviv Academy of Music, but he left after two years to pursue his love of other genres, “I got to the point where I really wanted to learn how to write and compose a classical piece, but I was struggling to find a way to express myself. I left the academy and continued working on my own beats, writing music and experimenting in the studio. I get a lot of inspiration from working with musicians and producers that I appreciate – I’m learning a lot from it, and I’m always into exploring new and interesting collaborations.”

The video for his new track, ‘Thunder’, has been inspired by such motivations. Filmed in London, guerrilla-style, with no filming permission, it sums up DORJ’s music; uninhibited.

His ‘Hipnotized’ EP is released 28 April.

Sounds like: James Blake, Sam Smith, Ben Khan

Lir

New Melbourne/Tel Aviv based electronic duo LIR (aka Luke Maton and Liron Tru) releases down-tempo, debut track called ‘Chasing’.

“Chasing was written in a moment where I felt everything and nothing at the same time. Where leaving and being left out is the same, like chasing and being chased is the same” says Liron of the new single.

Soft balearic vibes fill this simple track, along with glitches of drums.

Israel born and raised Roby Fayer is a 26 year old musician whose track ‘Safety Land’ popped up in our inbox this morning.

Fayer started making music when he was 18, taking a slightly different direction from his original passion for painting and design. He initially explored the genres of electronica, house and trance, but his tastes now include indie and rock. He cites influences from Alt-J, Lana Del Ray, Coldplay, The Script, Jessie Ware, and Sam Smith.

His super catchy track features Rotem Aberbach and we are looking to hearing more from Fayer.
