With a tour kicking off tonight in celebration of his brand new EP 'Don't Change For The World (Like It's Changing Me)', we've got all the goss on the latest releases and movements of Noah Dillon throughout this exciting next chapter.
The 24 year old singer songwriter’s music ranges from explosions of energy to hushed lullabies, and this comes as no surprise when you find out that they take influence from artists that span over a few genres, such as Julia Jacklin, Middle Kids, Modest Mouse and Courtney Barnett. When accompanied by his band - guitarist Sam Rocchi, drummer Jack Hill and bassist Claudia Genovese - Dillon’s vibrant musical vision comes to life and takes on a life of its own. Dillon and his band have gone on to support many highbrow acts such as Holy Holy, San Cisco, Spacey Jane and Paul Dempsey, not to mention also playing at festivals such as Bigsound, Nannup, Wave Rock and Good Day Sunshine.
‘Losing Touch’ is one of the 3 new singles under label Dew Process but the second release off the forthcoming EP ‘Don't Change For The World (Like It’s Changing Me)’. It follows up from the single ‘That’s Just How I Feel’, continuing on with a power pop feel, including big swinging melodies and an air of bravado. Pilerats continues this sentiment saying, “His storytelling and guitar-ridden melodies drawing you in and not letting you go.”
Third and final teaser release 'Alive and Kicking' premiered on Triple J which Noah calls "a love song drenched in a bit of self-doubt".
The inspiration from most of Dillon’s songs comes from their own relationships in life, where comes the belief that they are one of the most important aspects of life as you walk through it. “I’m of the opinion that all you leave behind in life are the relationships you’ve built with people. Most of my lyrics stem from analysing my relationships with those closest to me because it’s a place where there’s always a lot of passion.”
In addition to new signings and a new single, Noah Dillon is kicking off a headline national tour which will begin at The Rosemount Hotel here in Perth on Friday, October 8 and then wrapping up at Northcote Social Club in Melbourne on Saturday, 5 March 2022.
