Noble Oak’s shimmery track “Morning” has received the famed KONGOS remix treatment.
While the album version of “Morning” evokes a War On Drugs meets Washed Out sonic journey, KONGOS have elevated the track in showcasing an arena-worthy track full of kaleidoscopic beats and flourishing synths.
The original version of “Morning” is featured on the Vancouver electro dream-pop artist’s album 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 and is an enchanting collection of post-chillwave pop, a sumptuous suite of sativa songs for hazy, lazy days. Patrick has also been completing work on an exciting new project set for release this Fall.
“My intent from day one was literally to make the most beautiful songs that I possibly can,” says Fiore. “And to hope that the world can understand that and see it.” For Fiore, the concept of the horizon has spiritual overtones—which is why his third full-length is titled Horizon. As someone born and raised beside the Pacific Ocean in Vancouver, B.C., the horizon represents a calming, stabilizing presence in a hostile world. During a brief two-year stint in Toronto recently, Fiore felt adrift, in part because he had to climb to the roof of his house to get any sense of expanse. Now back on the West Coast, he has an apartment where the ocean is within sight. The horizon is always visible, beckoning. For Fiore, it represents “possibility, a centre, the edge of the earth, unimaginable infinity.”
