Wonderland bring you the premiere of a brand new track from nu-soul up-and-comer NoMBe.
NoMBe – AKA Noah McBeth – is an artist and producer who hails from Heidelberg, Germany, lives in LA, and is making big waves online with his distinctive, soulful sound. You may have heard his last track, “California Girls”, which shot to #1 recently on the Spotify US Viral Top 50 and was featured by several of the music press heavy hitters. The song, far from being a cover of the bubblegum-classic by Katy Perry, is an intelligent blend of IDM, Indie and Soul which has an addictive chorus and an appropriately sun-soaked video to match.
Now NoMBe is back with a new release, “Kemosabe”, that we are super-excited to be premiering. Beginning with a distorted chord sequence that complements his seductive trademark vocals, the track goes on to demonstrate NoMBe’s knack for crafting genre-bending music with flawless production and distinctive layers. Lyrically, it returns to one of music’s most well-worn themes: the painful experience of broken and embittered love (“She made damn sure we never gonna be friends”). NoMBe explained that, sonically speaking, he was interested in experimenting with, “white noise, space, and a lot of processing from a mixing perspective”, and the result is an addictive tune that bridges the crossroads between IDM and future soul and is infused with just a hint of hip-hop.
