Working with London-based producer Kristofer Harris (Bears Den, Belle and Sebastian, Ghostpoet etc.), Chris Noah delivers big choruses, vaporwave influenced synths, thrilling falsettos and fine melodic hooks. The single, accompanied by an official music video, comes out on 23rd October. It’s part of an upcoming EP Distance Deluxe, coming out on 6th November.
This Is The Night is inspired by an observation of a paradox that is somewhat common these days – when one person in a relationship is too career-focused and both know that because of this, the relationship is destined to failure. Yet the relationship is maintained artificially, as it’s easier to stay together than to say goodbye.
With a huge chorus, gripping melodies and Noah’s authentic voice, This Is The Night might be his most all-out-pop track to date. As he puts it: “Although I’m not trying to be tied down to one specific genre, especially in the writing process, it did take some convincing from Kristofer to take the track in this direction rather than in a more alternative/indie one. I truly think that we got the best out of the song.” The song was written at the RIGaLIVE songwriting camp and is released via “Made in Baltics”/”Sony Music Entertainment”.
In the bridge, Noah takes listeners through a different sonic scenery, flexing his falsetto where momentarily you can even hear a Bon Iver influence, before it comes back to the big chorus, repeating the phrase that will remain stuck in your head long after.
