Noya Rao, showcasing their distinctive synth drenched style, ‘Pina’ sees the quartet tackle the notion of a fleeting romance in what is a dreamy slice of electronic soul. Having been on the alternative Leeds music scene for a few years, Noya Rao have become respected purveyors of soulful, delicate soundscapes with a steady flow of exceptional releases and radio support from the likes of BBC R1, BBC R6 & Worldwide FM.
Speaking on new release ‘Pina’ Noya Rao said:
“The song is a story of casual intimacy – the voice plays through the events of a night of two people meeting and invents a narrative for the life of the lover they have just spent the night with.”
Having previously signed to Gondwana Records, Noya Rao now have a completely DIY ethos. They have complete autonomy on their output, from recording and writing through to creating all artwork and videos themselves and draw influence from artists including Little Dragon, Solange and Alabama Shakes. Leeds has become the backbone of Noya Rao, providing them an inspiring and affordable place to create music, whilst they collectively enjoy the green space that just outside the city has to offer. Outside of music, kick-ass front woman and lyricist Liv has a passion for Go-ju Ryu karate where she is currently grading for her black belt.
Musos through and through, the band are passionate about old equipment and synths, constantly searching for character and intrigue in their tone and sound. Nodding to their low-fi aesthetic, the band use old mics, and recording techniques to achieve their stand-out vintage feel. Having been selected as rising stars of the UK Jazz scene for Jazz Re:freshed 2020 SXSW showcase, the band look set to release their forthcoming EP soon with an aim to capture the vibrant energy of the late summer.
