NOY’s television credits include Israel’s equivalent of “American Idol”. NOY recently finished recording her debut album, which will be released in April 2014.”
NOY has a new single out called “Love Trap” that you need to make your ears aware of. A brilliant mix of Pop, Soul, Jazz and Rock, NOY’s “Love Trap” will make your senses tingle. With a little bit of Funk to it, as the guitar is kind of a blend of Pop Rock, with hints of 80s Pop Rock and some 70s experimental Rock. A slightly crunchy guitar riff plays throughout and will immediately hook you. There is also a fantastic guitar solo (I’m a sucker for awesome guitar solos) that closes out the song that any fan of guitar solos needs to hear.
NOY’s soft, yet powerfully strong voice, provides plenty of Soul and was the focal point of the song for me. NOY’s voice, on many occasions, reminded me of some of the great women Soul singers. She was able to hit the high notes, low notes and everything in between. Her vocals were accentuated by the sparkling and intelligent lyrics and the fantastic melody of the music.
The beat of the song is very nicely paced, as there are no slow parts to the song at all. At the very least, this song is a toe-tapper. You will find yourself swaying to the beat and possibly even find yourself up and dancing. Yes, NOY’s single, “Love Trap”, is that compelling. This song is all-around extremely well composed, perfectly performed and is sure to be a crowd-pleaser.
The single, “Love Trap”, has definitely piqued my interest and has me looking forward to her debut album in April.
