Born in Calgary and now relocated to New York, Samuel Hoeksema is the man behind Noro. We were eagerly waiting for the release of his two-track debut single Nightingale since it was announced last week. Nightingale saw the light of day yesterday via Mouser, and Noro is offering it as a free download here.
As we previously mentioned, Nightingale includes contributions from Austin Tufts (BRAIDS), Aaron Meyer (Honeybear) and producer Morgan Greenwood (Azeda Booth).
The single features the tracks ‘For Joy’ and ‘Armor’, a beautiful and heartfelt song. Listen to it below and don’t let your ears miss Nightingale.
This Tuesday December 11th will see the free digital release of the two-track single Nightingale from Noro, the brainchild project of New York-via-Calgary musician Samuel Hoeksema.
Nightingale features the warm and radiant tracks ‘Armor’ and ‘For Joy’ and it marks Noro’s debut release.
In incubation for two years, according the press release, Nightingale also features contributions from Austin Tufts (BRAIDS), Aaron Meyer (Honeybear) and producer and member of Azeda Booth, Morgan Greenwood.
Noro is currently recording and producing his debut full-length album, due out next year. His first offerings leave us eagerly anticipating it, and we’ll keep our eyes peeled for more on this.
The release blurb describes ‘Armor’ and ‘For Joy’ as “a product of surrender; of allowing oneself to lie prone and let one’s deepest self speak without competition”. These songs are the perfect accompaniment to gorgeous winter days like today and I can’t wait for them to drop next week.
