Out on November 26th via Humming Records and Warner Music Baltics, ‘No Man Is An Island’ is Estonian singer-songwriter and producer NOËP’s debut album.
The darker sound of the album was inspired by the cold bleak Estonian winter during which it was written and produced. The name and the theme of the album has a double meaning.
“Firstly, we as humans are social beings and it is difficult to get through life without other people — without love and friendship. Secondly, we are all connected in one way or another on this planet and everyone’s action/inaction will affect one another. All the tracks on the album are either about love or some sort of environmental/societal struggles we face as a humankind,” explains NOËP.
The album is an eclectic mix of genres that are unified by NOËP’s unique vocals, piano, analogue synths, and some 80s synthpop-inspired percussion sounds. The album includes singles such as ‘Differences’, ‘ Head Out Of The Water’, ‘No Man Is An Island’ and ‘KIDS feat. Emily Roberts’.
Hailing from Tallinn and inspired by artists such as Alt-J, Mura Masa and James Hersey, NOËP’s unique blend of alternative pop with electronic undertones, has captured the attention of music lovers and industry all over the world, amassing over 40 million streams and counting. In addition to his global reach and appeal, NOËP is something of a musical icon in his homeland, having been awarded ‘Pop Album of the Year’ at the Estonian Music Awards in 2019, for his debut EP ‘Heads In The Clouds’. Further afield, he has had airplay on BBC Radio 1, along with DSP editorial support from major markets such as UK and Germany.
