Nick Noon is a rising mixed genre artist based out of Nashville, Texas. He is a singer, songwriter, composer and multi- instrumentalist. Nick’s music is dynamic and extremely picturesque. He has constantly been releasing music over the past two years. The album has rustic quality that draws his listeners and transfixes them with his songwriting. The artist’s music is an adventure and he surprises you every now and then with his commendable voice. An example of his distinguishable work is Don’t Let the Paper’s Get You Down which is one of his most listened to songs. Nick Noon does a great job with his descriptive lyrics that skirt around the right amount of ambiguity and particularity.
The Jejune Affair is Nick Noon’s New Album that consists of a mix songs that has been out for a while and new music as well. We start off with Costume that talks about the theatricality of life and media. People on TV wear costumes to gain votes but we sometimes wear costumes to be liked. Begs you to question how similar or different are all of us? This is a theme we see in most of Nick Noon’s songs. He speaks particularly at points and somehow leaves a lot for interpretation.
Another song that instantly commands your attention is Grant Me Speed– the last song in the album. It begins slowly with the piano, violin while the Cello adds gravity to the song. The track has such an English church vibe to it with the harmonising of voices and the words itself. The bubbling orchestra that builds like waves adds to this imagery as well. The way the electric guitar hits a sweet spot right in the middle of the song really takes you by surprise.
The album has a universal quality, especially because it isn’t defined by a single genre. It has potential to be used in any movie because the songs dramatically rise and fall. A movie that would hold The Jejune Affair seamlessly is Lady Bird by Greta Gerwig. This album has all the complexities of a teenage girl that’s trying to juggle high school and her emotions. And that’s a wide range of emotions and thoughts, if you’re wondering. Much like Greta Gerwig, Nick Noon does such a great job at showcasing the complexity of the mundane.
Nick Noon has listeners across the UK, Indonesia and Switzerland. He clearly caters to a wide variety of listeners. The crux of most art is to evoke emotions. Nick does exactly that, his music acts as a catalyst for your emotions to rise to the surface. This album has a very church rock atmosphere to it and this is a style I have never seen before. If you want to tell your friends about how you knew of him before he was famous, because he sure as hell will be famous, I highly suggest you follow him on all his social media profiles.
