Owls

After the 2018 release of their debut album Icaros, the British electronic-soul quartet Noya Rao returns with new music on the 26th of April. The band’s new record, an EP named Owls, effortlessly blends a multitude of genres, similar to its predecessor. Comparable to acts like Little Dragon, James Blake, and Polica, the Leeds-based quartet plays with lo-fi hip-hop and soulful electronica. One of Noya Rao’s unique attributes is the band’s way of allowing each sound and instrument to be distinct enough to display its unique richness and still blend into a harmonic arrangement.
