South London based singer-songwriter and producer Jewelia’s single ‘Noah‘ is a mixture of commerical pop with a cinematic front. Known for her addictive indie-pop songwriting, ‘Noah’ takes the songwriter’s sound into a slightly different direction, showcasing how versatile her sound can be. Written during lockdown, the single is about finding hope when feeling overwhelmed.
Jewelia quotes, “During the past few months, the mental health of lots of people around me, some close to me, have been affected by isolation and uncertainty. ‘Noah’ was written as a message of hope: this flood will hopefully come and go and we’ll find dry land, like Noah. It’s easy to feel powerless not only in extraordinary circumstances, but every day, as part of this big world. This is another theme in the song, inspired by events that happened in 2020, such as the Black Live Matter movement. I’ve been asking myself: what can we, common people, do about bigger issues like this? What can we do about wars, about social inequality, about decisions taken by people in power who don’t care about our wellbeing or about the planet? Can we really make a change? Do we matter?“
Produced and mixed by Jewelia and her partner Andy in their home-studio, the music video was filmed on the Norfolk Coast, on a beach in Sheringham. ‘Noah’ is an emotive soundscape fuelled with personality, and serves as a track destined for your playlist.
