In a return to his musical beginnings, the Vancouver’s electro dream-pop artist Noble Oak today shares the second single, “Little Things Left Behind”, taken from his new instrumental piano EP Stories, set for release on February 12th 2021.
Speaking on his new work 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.
Fiore found inspiration from moments and visions of the world and played them upon what he describes as his most fluent instrument. “There are moments where words fail and music speaks; my chosen language has always been the piano, says Fiore, “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 earlier this 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.
