The Tel-Aviv based pop producer and songwriter Noga Erez has shared another new track today as she continues to tease us about a follow-up to her excellent debut album Off The Radar. “NO news on TV” was inspired by the unusual life situation we’ve all found ourselves in over the last few months, as she explains:

“This song was written during a period where I had more time than I’ve had in a decade. I was able to sit down and work my ass off on new music without any emails disturbing the silence. No notifications, nothing. I wanted to write a song that talked about that. I felt a deep need to imagine what it would be like to live in a world with no politics, money, grit, racism or violence… I call this song ‘A children’s song for adults’ because it shows a naive, utopian reflection of reality. I just needed to have a song like that. An escape song.

Accordingly, “No news on TV” is the brightest and most outright pop song Noga Erez has yet released – you could even imagine this song blasting out on commercial radio or at a pool party. It still contains plenty of the Israeli’s inimitable character, as she and her partner Ori Rousso trade offhanded, drawling comments about being so bored, while the world seems to sparkle in idle beauty all around them. Towards the end, “NO news on TV” takes a turn towards the bizarre, as the vision of this world where there’s absolutely nothing of consequence happening starts to be pulled apart by the reality of living in a pivotal moment in history, and Erez and Rousso implore us “come on, play with your enemies.”
