All My Journeys

By Noonakai

All My Journeys, the second single from Leeds based artist Irfan Shah under the name Noonakai is a beautiful, trippy and haunting song which I can honestly say left the hairs on my neck stand on end from the first listen. The soulful passionate lyrics such as "You are my here and now, you are a saving grace" through the soulful delivery of singer Karen Pirie perfectly suit the laidback groove of the track. There's a lovely moment when the violins Kick in on the third verse, which really adds another dimension to the track.

B-Side Escape to is a more standard instrumental trip hop track, with obvious influence from Air, Zero Seven, and Private press-era DJ Shadow. This track is still very strong and shows great potential for a future album.

One thought that hit me whilst listening to this single is how amazing it would be to hear live in somewhere like The Wardrobe or HiFi Club - a possible future move for Noonakai?

All in all a perfect soundtrack to a long hot summers day.
