Elegant Soulful duo ELIS NOA will be releasing their second LP ‘I Was Just About To Leave’ (Las Vegas Records) on the 27th of May.
The duo consists of Aaron and Elisa, who both live in Vienna. The two got to know each other during their joint studies at the jazz department of Vienna Music University. The sound of ELIS NOA ranges from pop to contemporary RnB to future soul. Inspired by the works of Emilie Nicolas, Jacob Banks, Jordan Rakei, Frank Ocean, Jazmine Sullivan and Oliver Malcolm, ELIS NOA’s own sound has parallels to Billie Eilish, Lana Del Rey, Jordan Rakei, and Jacob Banks.
Together, ELIS NOA has released two EPs: “High EP” and “Love Letters”, as well as their successful debut LP “What Do You Desire?” (2020).
The new album “I Was Just About To Leave” is a concept album, a story of letting go.
The album follows the releases of “Mad About You”, “Weights” “I Don’t Like It Here” and “Make Me Think Of You” which were all released over the last few months and in preparation for the album. Since their debut album “What Do You Desire?” (2020) they collaborated with Marco Kleebauer (Leyya and Bilderbuch) and Max Walch (Left Boy and Bilderbuch). In total, ELIS NOA has achieved over 1.1 million plays on various platforms and has been supported by well-known international media such as Tonspion, NBHAP, Glamglare, Music Export, and Everything Is Noise, as well as Deutschlandfunkkultur, FM4, and Oe1.
With “I Was Just About To Leave”, the two musicians let their audience dive deep inside and invite them to find connections to their own stories and feelings. Letting go is not an easy or linear mission, which is why the duo takes time to musically explore each step of the process, walking through the journey of healing with each song, describing moments of resistance and pain to acceptance and ease.
ELIS NOA’s music is soulful, honest, raw, and unembellished. It doesn’t leave you cold, it’ll make you sit up and pay attention. Musically, the duo’s sound is layered with gentle brushes of elegant tones and rolling beats that add unexpected depth to the experience.
