Vancouver’s electro dream-pop artist Noble Oak today releases his latest project, Stories. A veritable return to his musical beginnings, Stories is an instrumental piano EP. To celebrate the release Noble Oak also shared the stunning performance video for the latest single, “The Sun Dancing in Her Hair” – view below.
Speaking on Stories Noble Oak’s Patrick Fiore says, “These 5 pieces are a return to the beginnings of my musical world. Since about as far back as I can remember, I have sat at the piano and played whatever came into my mind. Occasionally I would record what I played, and these pieces are 5 of those such recordings.
Inspired by moments and visions of the world, they are the most pure offerings I can create at a given time, played upon my most fluent instrument. There are moments where words fail and music speaks; my chosen language has always been the piano. My hope is that these sounds will be a place for your mind to explore, and find solace, in the same way I have been able to for so long.”
Stories has already been tipped by CBC Music as one of their Canadian Albums We Can’t wait to hear in 2021 and follows Noble Oak’s LP Horizon, released last summer. Lauded for breathing “fresh air into the electronic dream pop world” (Exclaim), Horizon marked Noble Oak’s debut for Last Gang Records andis an enchanting collection of post-chillwave pop, a sumptuous suite of sativa songs for hazy, lazy days.
