NOÊTA - Released A Sinister Video, Sophomore Album On The Way

Noêta have released a sinister video for the track "Above and Below" as the second single taken from the Nordic dark ambient folk outfit's forthcoming album Elm, which has been slated for release on 23 April, via Prophecy Productions. Sophomore full-length Elm is loosely based on emotions connected to the eponymous poem by celebrated American author Sylvia Plath, who struggled with severe depression and sadly committed suicide shortly after writing "Elm". Something dark, melancholic, and at times even sinister is haunting each of the eight tracks collected on this album. Yet at the same time, Noêta's music comes with an inherent ethereal beauty, which is carried by Êlea's both lucent and lucid voice. The focus on her bewitching vocals is further underlined by subtle and nearly minimalistic use of instrumentation that masterly captures and enhances the musical moods. The sound of a teardrop falling onto a moss-covered stone. The sound of heartbreaking. The sound of a rosebud opening at dawn. These are just some of the sounds that Noêta with vocalist and musician Êlea have woven their songs from. Once again, she has been joined by her long-time collaborator Ândris from Sweden, who added a wide range of instruments to the music, which has been fittingly dubbed as dark ambient among other terms. Here is the first taste of Elm's dark ambient - music video "Above and Below", it's "about a strong desire to distance ourselves from society and mankind", as reveals frontwoman Êlea. Link
