Noah Horne is an up-tempo pop artist from Norfolk, UK. Surrounded by encouraging people and artistic influences, Noah has had the fortitude and talent to become a great artist. He brings different elements to his music, including playing the harp in many of his songs. This kind of creativeness led him to the creation of a trilogy of songs (Seventeen, Astronaut, and Lift-Off). His latest single, “Party With the Lights Off”, has Noah venturing into a newer dance-pop sound. “Party With the Lights Off” presents a good vibe, but at the same time makes listeners feel like they are getting wild at a club.
As with many dance-pop songs, “Party With the Lights Off” begins with a synth line. This line is used to get the rhythm of the track going. As the drums emerge, we feel the strong sub-punchy club vibes. However, the song really begins to peak when Noah’s vocals are introduced. He isn’t necessarily singing the whole time, but there are speaking parts. The tonal qualities of his voice add to the vibe, and when he sings it’s like an extra gem in the song. “Party With the Lights Off” also has a breakdown that takes the song to a new place momentarily. “Party With the Lights Off” takes listeners on a dance-like journey through the club.
Hey Noah Horne! Welcome to BuzzMusic! Our team is really happy to be representing you and your new single “Party with the Lights Off”. Growing up, you mentioned that you had the opportunity to go on a teen TV show, did that experience make you realize then that that wasn’t for you? Or do you still have some aspirations to go back onto television?
Oh my goodness, you and your team have literally gone to the moon and back for me - I'm actually so honored you guys are premiering and representing me. Yes - 'Party with the lights off' is my newest song and I'm actually so psyched to share it with you all. There's been a couple of opportunities as a teen, where I had the opportunity to go on television, but never got through past the stages. In some ways, I'm glad I didn't get cast in TV shows because it wouldn't have shaped me then way I am now. By all means, I've toured across Europe, performed in the BBC Radio 1 Academy Open Mic - I've done a lot. But I feel I wouldn't be as grounded if I had made it or broken it so young. Having said that, I would love to get back into acting - have always been a performer. Fun fact: I considered pursuing a career in acting before music. Everything happens for a reason though, and I genuinely believe that I'm on the right path.
You also mentioned that you play the harp in many of your tracks. Is there some harp in “Party with the Lights Off”? Do you add a lot to the productions of your songs as well?
I do yes! In all of the songs, I record and get the harp blended in the song whichever producer I'm collaborating with. For this song, we played the harp and then reversed it to give that interesting atmospheric background for the club track. The future tracks are gonna have even more harp in it - blended with all the super fun pop stuff haha :) I've trained on harp and I just love it as an instrument - I just hope I can get more people to see it's pretty cool:D
Growing up, you had a lot of positive communities surrounding you. Could you elaborate and tell us some specifics about the groups who supported you?
Most of the really positive communities were my family and friends. In Norfolk, people have survived by relying on each and coming together. My family has always been amazing. It was difficult at times, as I was always into creating or being creative when I was a kid, and most people around me weren't the creative types and didn't always understand why I loved being so expressive. It was partly why people may have isolated me. There have been very few people who have 100% believed in me, and sometimes I still feel like that - but the community and family I do have to love me and support me regardless and I am so eternally grateful for everything they have given me.
This track is definitely one I can be seen being heard in clubs. Do you have any plans to write some more laid backtracks in the future of your career?
Me too - I have already lots of confirmation that this will be played in clubs across the US, hopefully in the UK too! Spoilers ahead hehe - there maybe another ballad song dropping later this year, I'm doing a less intense club song soon which is more relaxed, which I hope you guys will love! But there is a vocoder ballad which I'm dropping later this year - it's gonna be very emotional like Lift-Off but perhaps more electronic ;)
What can we expect to see from Noah Horne throughout 2020?
A lot of fun stuff - more music, more (good) drama and hopefully everything going sky high - the next six months are gonna be so incredible. I want to say THANK YOU SO MUCH for always supporting me with everything. You guys have been so amazing to me - I can't wait to share my new music with you! :D
