Noah Dillon shares new single 'Alive and Kicking'. Premiered on triple j Good Night's the new song, which Noah calls "a love song drenched in a bit of self-doubt" is the third single to be taken from the Don't Change For The World (Like It's Changing Me) EP, out this Friday 1 October on Dew Process.
The track comes ahead of headline tour dates, kicking off in WA this October and a national tour supporting Sly Withers. To celebrate the EP's release Noah is teaming up with friends Asha Jeffries, Jack Davies, Connor (from Bugs) and Sly Withers for a special Instagram live stream event this Friday at 6:30 PM AEST (4:30 PM WA time).
The 5-track EP, Don't Change For The World (Like It's Changing Me), features 'Alive and Kicking', as well as the firecracker 'Losing Touch' and the ode to personal freedom, 'That's Just How I Feel'. On writing the EP Noah explains, "The overall message is one of learning to love yourself and navigating the relationships around you. When I listen back to the songs together it really points to a time in my life where I was (and still am) figuring out who I am whilst navigating relationships, grief and love. This is a self-exploratory look at who I am and how I am being shaped."
The 24-year-old Perth singer-songwriter's music ranges from explosions of frenetic energy to hushed lullabies of soulful sensitivity. In 2020, while the world was looking inward, Noah stepped out by releasing a scorching run of singles to full rotation spots across triple j and triple j Unearthed. Including the brilliant 'Sunburnt In July,' the intimate 'Knievel Daredevil' and the tongue in cheek anthem 'Matthew McConaughey'.
The witty, confessional and relatable lyricism of Noah's heart-on-his-sleeve approach to songwriting draws fans to his songs but it's with his band – guitarist Sam Rocchi, drummer Jack Hill and bassist Claudia Genovese – that the Noah Dillon experience really comes to life. Noah and his band have previously supported Holy Holy, San Cisco, Spacey Jane and Paul Dempsey, played Bigsound, Nannup, Wave Rock, Good Day Sunshine and sold-out headline dates across the country.
