Electric Soul prodigy NoMBe (Noah McBeth) has released his new track, “Drama” from his debut album, They Might’ve Even Loved Me out March 23rd on TH3RD BRAIN Records. On the new song, NoMBe’s subdued, winking vocals, combined with the atmospheric production and seductive beat (courtesy of electronic act, Big Data), give a cinematic, summer-nights vibe to the chilled-out, understated banger.
They Might’ve Even Loved Me began as an open-ended experiment which the LA-based upstart would release “single by single, month-to month, until he ran out of love songs.” Each song on the album tells a different story about the women who have shaped NoMBe’s life, from his godmother, Chaka Khan, to high school crushes, summer flings, his girlfriend, and his mother. Each is a chapter of a narrative about love, intimacy, sex, heartbreak and euphoria.
In the same way that Prince embraced the electric guitar as a medium for his vision without regard for genre, NoMBe’s electric guitar-driven sound glides effortlessly through electronic pop, soul, blues, funk and contemporary indie rock, reminiscent of acts like Daft Punk, Jimi Hendrix, MGMT, The XX, Electric Guest, Milky Chance and Lenny Kravitz. On stage, NoMBe (electric guitar, vocals) delivers an electrifying, red-blooded live show alongside his three-piece all-female band, fully realizing his musical project as a tribute to femininity, honoring female wisdom, power and knowledge.
