Vancouver’s electro dream-pop artist Noble Oak returns to his musical beginnings with the announcement of his new instrumental piano EP Stories, set for release later this winter. Today, he shares the first single and video, “Look Up Through The Trees”.
Speaking on his new work Noble Oak’s Patrick Fiore says, “These 5 pieces are a return to the beginnings of my musical world. Since about as far back as I can remember, I have sat at the piano and played whatever came into my mind. Occasionally I would record what I played, and these pieces are 5 of those such recordings.
Inspired by moments and visions of the world, they are the most pure offerings I can create at a given time, played upon my most fluent instrument. There are moments where words fail and music speaks; my chosen language has always been the piano. My hope is that these sounds will be a place for your mind to explore, and find solace, in the same way I have been able to for so long.”
Stories follows Noble Oak’s LP Horizon, released earlier this summer. Lauded for breathing “fresh air into the electronic dream pop world” (Exclaim), Horizon marked Noble Oak’s debut for Last Gang Records andis an enchanting collection of post-chillwave pop, a sumptuous suite of sativa songs for hazy, lazy days.
