When it comes to bands committed to providing an honest musical soundscape with a message, Coventry's Noiiises are heading for the top of the pile.
Their brand of ambient, synth-infused electronica with melodic vocals and meaningful lyrics sets them apart from other more generic bands of that ilk.
Noiiises are composed of Swiss born singer/songwriter Ludovic Merkelbach, Johnny Catt on guitar, Sarah Ransley on bass/synth and Joe Morris on drums/SPD-S and their debut EP View Top To Ocean is set to cause a bit of a stir.
From the epic Light Came Back through the poppier sounding Fight to the atmospheric Only Hope they're achieving the level of musical awareness that brought the lighter sounding CHVRCHES or Canada's Purity Ring to the fore a few years ago.
This release should see Noiiises rise to their rightful place in the musical firmament with Fight; in particular, being perfect for radio play. To prove that point it will be featured on Ralph's Indie Show on Radio KC on Sunday 17th January.
In their own words - "We carry a message of hope and our aim is to reach out to people who’s struggles we have experienced in our past and to show them that we are a living testimony of hope, that they can pull through and be strong again."
"We are passionate about creating a sound that resonates in people’s hearts and draws them in to look deeper than their immediate circumstance: we have found a style of alternative and electronic music through which we express this sound. As you can tell we are passionate about changing lives and we really believe in what we do, we believe that our songs can change peoples’ situations."
