Premiere: NØVE “Taboo”

LA based electro/R&B artist NØVE is preparing to release his debut EP, Dark Paradise in April. Surviving the Golden Age is excited to premiere the EP’s lead single “Taboo.” Produced by Johnny What, the track builds its pathos through a sparse instrumental reminiscent of Jamie xx or Noah “40” Shebib. NØVE’s voice is unique for this type of beat. He doesn’t rely on falsetto or vocal effects, save for a little extra reverb on the chorus. Otherwise NØVE manages to be powerful while still being sexy. This is late night afterparty music.
