Noelle – Shades of Blue


19 year old Canadian R&B artist Noelle has already impressed us earlier this year with her hauntingly beautiful ballad with a slightly sinister twist Never Forget You. She proved in that moment that she was able to inject her own feelings towards heartache effortlessly into her music to the point where you two felt like you were going through that break up with her. She continues to do that today with the emotive track Shades of Blue.

Vocally she never disappoints with the lullful tones of her voice soaring across the brooding production of low synth beats and finger clicks creating strong sense of rhythm when put together. Lyrically it deals with moving on from a previous relationship and the things you miss about them with the lyric, “Feels like I could do better / Why am I wearing your sweater,” immediately pulling at your heartstrings with the imagery it creates before the rest of the track hits you with a freight train full of unadulterated emotion. This is one for those late night crying sessions.
