A project I’ve been very impatient to share with the world. Joe Nora‘s new Field Trip Day EP, and his 2nd release with us, is out today.
Soaking you up in its mellowness, the 4-track project tells a story of a rainy field trip day back in school – with those little moments that mean the world to a little kid. He elaborates:
This EP has a very dreamy and nostalgic feeling for me and when I put it together I was thinking about how special field trips used to feel in school, wanting to sit next to your crush on the bus ride there, the rainy or cloudy weather that might have affected the mood, and the cool new stuff you might see along the way or at your destination.
Each song represents a part of that day, waking up and getting in the car all sleepy-eyed, seeing a girl you might like when you get to school, and looking up at the sky as you ride along to some scenic afternoon. All these little moments inspired this little Field Trip Day EP.
Staying true to his peculiar sound design and the use of natural elements, Joe kicks off the project with “Low Ride” which carries Joe’s signature crunchy percussion & spacey synths, and the title song – his renowned clarinet & wind chimes on top of organic lofi beats. “Mostly Cloudy” closes the EP with jazzy boom-bap vibes the listeners already fell in love with in his previous Stereofox single “Boska”. And you already heard the single “Dreamgirl” – hazy vocal samples, together with synths & chimes that feel like you’re in a dream.
