Multi-talented Estonian electro-pop act NOËP reveals his new feel-good summer single ‘Head Out Of The Water’, accompanied by an uplifting self-directed music video.
NOËP says ‘Head Out Of The Water’ represents a shift into a new musical direction. “I took some time off to focus on writing at the end of last year and after the song came about, it was clear to me where I’m headed. I believe its uniqueness will stand out from my previous tracks and the upcoming journey will be exciting for both me and my fans.”
Having directed several commercials, videos and films, NOËP has a drive to tell his own stories via his music videos. “I feel like my background as a film director influences a lot of my songwriting. The storytelling has a specific structure which is usually inspired by the aesthetics of film screenplays.” NOËP’s passion for nature also has a huge influence on him as an artist, evidenced in the music videos’ storyline, which includes elements of 3D animation.
