Tel Aviv rising star Noga Erez is back with a new alternative version for her latest single ‘End of the Road‘ from “Kids Against The Machine” series
In the new version of “End of the Road,” wee see the track in a different light to the beat-heavy, slick production of the original. “The idea was not to use any ‘machines,’” Noga explains of the series. “No computer, no electronic instruments.”
Its earworms and crisp productions are locked around lyrics that deal with the personal and the political; mortality and loss; war and peace, insecurity and ambition.
Noga says about the new version, “These are songs about what we inherit from past generations, how we pass things on,” Noga explains about the upcoming LP. “How this game of evolution of our culture and humanity is very much in our hands. We were all somewhat a blank page at some point. KIDS talks about humanity’s potential for both beauty and destruction.”
The new album explores themes of tension and release, anxiety and remedy, and masterly melodic licks in swipes of stomping brass, all wrapped around Noga’s versatile vocals that quick-switch from clipped flow to smoky purr; from stadium chorus to street-ready beats.
