Noga Erez – “Nails”

Last year, Noga Erez released a new album called Kids, plus an acoustic version called Kids (Against The Machine). We last heard from her back in January, when she returned with a live cover of Lil Nas X and Jack Harlow’s “Industry Baby.” Today, she’s back with a new song of her own.

When Noga Erez feels trapped inside the machine, she takes a walk through the majestically crumbling, tree-lined streets of her native Tel Aviv, Israel, and winds up facing the Mediterranean Sea. “When I lock into a pace, I start to get ideas,” she says, calling from a hotel room in...

Stevie Nicks, Japanese Breakfast, 21 Savage, Noga Erez, Tool, and More Set for Bonnaroo 2022

Remember how we were hoping things would get better? Well, they sort of did, and then they didn’t, and now everything is up in the air again, just like the extremely contagious disease that’s frequently mutating and continually wreaking all kinds of havoc across the globe. But I guess in this pandemic we’re going to keep on chugging until we can’t. So, now begins the season of festival announcements as we enter another COVID year. Maybe things will be a little different in 2022 and we can enjoy each other’s company again…maybe! Anyway, Bonnaroo announced this year’s lineup and the event’s scheduled date for June 16 through 19.

Noga Erez Against the Machine

Since exploding onto the world stage with the darkly wry Off the Radar in 2017, Noga Erez has carved out a reputation as a sonic innovator and lyrical truth-teller. Her experimental approach and unflinching honesty are very much apparent on 2021’s KIDS, but the gloom is now illuminated by a faint flicker of hope. That light grows brighter on the Israeli singer/songwriter’s just-released acoustic album, KIDS (Against the Machine).

Noga Erez: "Going back and playing a song on the piano is the best test to check whether your song is based on production more than you wanted"

Described by The Guardian as “Israel’s most defiant star”, Noga Erez channels any issues that affect her through her music. She’s certainly not one to be afraid to take on all aspects of culture head on, and has done just that, covering everything from questioning government policies to the over-availability of prescription drugs in releases like her 2017 debut album Off the Radar and new album Kids.

City Lights: Noga Erez Makes Her D.C. Debut

It’s not often that an artist starts a Zoom interview apologizing for the scene behind them, but Noga Erez, who is in the middle of redecorating, does just that. “We’re painting the ceiling,” confesses Erez. “So it’s a mess.” Home improvements aren’t the only thing the Israeli singer-songwriter-producer has been working on during the pandemic. Forced to cancel her 2020 U.S. tour dates, including an appearance at South By Southwest, the extra time allowed Erez and her musical and life partner Rousso to tinker with her second album KIDS (out now via City Slang)—an album that was almost in the can when the shutdown happened. “We thought we were either going to finish mixing the album, send it to master, and release it as we planned,” says Erez. “But then we ended up working on the same album for another year. We got to have a better album in so many different ways.” The results pull from influences including Bjork and PJ Harvey, but also delve into a wider range than from her first album Off the Radar. “It’s more leaning towards stuff like Gorillaz, Cardigans, some 90’s influences and also very, very heavy on hip-hop influences—Kendrick Lamar, Vince Staples, Princess Nokia,” she explains. Erez will finally get a chance to perform her music live for the DMV with an appearance at Sixth & I on Sept. 19, a first for the artist. “I’ve never played D.C. before,” says Erez. “Actually, I’ve played very few shows in the U.S. so we’re going to make this first time a big one.” Noga Erez performs Sept. 19 at 8 p.m. at Sixth & I, 600 I St. NW. $25-$30.
