New: Noble Oak – Dissolve

When it comes to glisteningly pristine dream pop, there are few around better at it than Canada’s Noble Oak. Four and a half minutes of hopeless longing, I find myself saying it every single time when writing about Noble Oak, but this guy deserves a much larger audience. if i let you slip away i […]

New: Noble Oak – I’m Lost

Someone give this kid a record deal already. Quite how Noble Oak has slipped right under the noses of label A&R’s is completely beyond me. With consistently fantastic output and a sound as unique as it is beautiful, it’s cliched to describe I’m Lost as otherworldly, but he genuinely transports the listener to another planet. […]

New: Noble Oak – Thea/Vilde

Seriously, Noble Oak is the most underrated musician in the world at this moment in time. Having witnessed his development, from his very first recordings, through to more polished and assured compositions, there’s a jealous part of me that wants his music to remain as a bloggers secret, however with each and every release, the […]

New: Noble Oak – Patience

Dayyummn. How isn’t this kid massive?! Noble Oak may well be one of my favourite artists at this moment in time, with his regular and consistently amazing output; newest track Patience showcases a more progressive side to Fiore. Fusing early 00′s dubstep influences with the modern R&B sound pioneered by the likes of How To […]

New: Noble Oak – Lover

Noble Oak is rapidly becoming one of the artists of the year, with a string of excellent releases under his belt, all that’s left for the young Canadian is a full length LP. New track Lover features the closest Pat has to a ‘radio-friendly’ chorus, eloquent and glistening with beauty. With each and every track […]

Everything You Can Imagine Is Real

Halfway into a year is normally considered a good time to take a step back and assess the six months just past. Now instead of churning out a desperately boring list documenting “Albums of 2012″ that reads like 90% of other music blogs, I’ve decided to put together a few compilations, featuring my favourite free […]

New: Noble Oak – We Decide

Now without wanting to blow my own trumpet, witnessing the rise and rise of Vancouver dreampop artist Noble Oak has been all the more pleasing given that I was one of the first to pick up on the immeasurable talent of Patrick. My selfish pride aside, new track We Decide is destined to open his […]

New: Noble Oak – Escape Night

I can’t emphasize just how much I love summer and the warmer weather that comes with it. People smile at you in the street, everyone takes a step back from the fastpaced lives they tread and suddenly every vibrant colour you ignored in the winter months, calls your name enticingly. Whether there’s a connection between […]

New: Noble Oak – Fast Summer

Vancouver producer Noble Oak is rapidly becoming one of my favourite new artists around. His No Bloke EP wowed me last year, and his couple of tracks so far from 2012 have set the bar even higher. Since deciding to use his own vocals amongst his mesmerizing glo-fi productions, his work has taken on a […]

New: Noble Oak – Inside

Another cut from one of my favourite producers at the moment, and it may well be his best yet. Inside is a gloriously enchanting journey, with Noble Oak fashioning a luxurious, expansive soundscape, complimented by his own sampled vocals. Having been following Noble Oak for a few months now, it’s fantastic to hear him maturing […]

New: Noble Oak – The Mydriatic Sea

Having ‘tipped’ Noble Oak as an act to keep on your radar in 2012, it’s brilliant to hear new material from the Vancouver musician despite being only two days into the new year. The Mydriatic Sea finds Noble Oak experimenting with vocal sections, morphing them beyond recognition whilst keeping them intriguing. Where his highly recommended […]

Sound of 2012 (Part 3 – Josh)

After writing the first Sound of 2012 article, I not only realised that I’d missed out so many incredibly exciting upcoming acts, but also that it wasn’t quite as sonically diverse as I’d originally envisioned. With Part I focusing quite heavily quite on lo-fi orientated songwriters and solo musicians, Joel took about compiling his own […]

Introducing: Noble Oak

There’s some stunning electro-ambient music coming out of Canada at the moment, and Vancouver’s Noble Oak is not about to deviate from this trend. The solo project of ‘Patty’, his new EP entitled No Bloke is a dreamy journey through hazy vocals and reverb heavy synths, proving both relaxing and beauteous at the same time. […]
