NOÊTA - Unveils Title Track Of The Forthcoming Sophomore Album

Norway based Nordic dark ambient folk band Noêta has released the haunting title track from their forthcoming album Elm, which has been scheduled for release on 23rd April via Prophecy Productions. Noêta's 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'.

"The title-track "Elm" is in parts told through the words of Sylvia Plath", reveals frontwoman Êlea. "Her poem 'Elm' is an almost physical expression of anxiety and depression as something real and vivid that is living inside some of us -  something that is dark, terrifying and malevolent. Being haunted by anxiety and depression can lead to fear of the uncontrollable malignity living within the self. It claims the afflicted as its own in order to kill. This poem became even more upsetting to me after learning that Sylvia Plath went on to commit suicide not long after she wrote it."

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. Listen now to "Elm" in the player below, and check out if you missed it the previously released video for "Above And Below" and first single "Dawn Falls" over HERE and HERE. Link
