Noga Erez

Noga Erez, the singer and producer of experimental electronic music from Tel Aviv, will play at Pohoda 2019. Her debut album Off The Radar, which she released only last year, has been praised in great reviews by the magazines such as Clash, The Skinny, The 405, Paste and The Guardian. It paved her way to Primavera, Pitchfork Paris, Roskilde, MELT!, SXSW and many other festivals. After these achievements, Israeli Forbes included her in the "30 under 30" list of the most influential people under 30 years old.

In her music, Noga Erez discusses global issues, sexual violence and problems that affect her native country and both sides of the conflict – especially common people. The titles of her songs such as "Dance While You Shoot" or "Globar Fear"are also very telling. According to her, music is the form and also an ideal way of communication, since people with different origins and stories are able to similarly share and perceive emotions in it. The way she translated her attitudes into the album is, according to the Paste magazine, galvanizing. The 405 claims that if you don’t know the background of the record and its author, you feel like you’re listening to a heavy dance party pop, which is, according to the magazine, an interesting intention (to entertain and to force to think at the same time). The Skinny adds in their review: "Off The Radar is an incredibly accomplished record, which carves out a distinct sound that captures and captivates the listener. Noga Erez should really be on your radar.”  She already is on ours – the Israeli's most rebellious star (as The Guardian writes about her) will be “detected” by the Trenčín airport radar in July 2019.
