The song “Radar” from rising artist Noah Slee is an instant favorite among KCRW DJs. The track appears on his debut album Otherland, which was just released August 25th. Noah has an interesting upbringing, as he is originally from Tonga, raised in New Zealand, and now resides in Berlin (upon listening, you can hear a very global sound).
Here’s Noah on the track: “Radar is paying homage to all the dope musicians paving away at their creations. Radar started as an acoustic guitar song that then became this upbeat tune that no matter how often I’ve already heard it (shot a music video, heard it x1000000) I still wanna dance. Which is important…..music + dance = life”
Noah’s musical inspirations range from Bob Marley and Thom Yorke to Fela Kuti and Billie Holiday; and the album reflects those influences through his own storytelling about challenges and self discovery.
Today we bring the premiere of the beautiful video for “Radar.”
