The uber-talented singer, DJ and model Jet Noir is releasing a brand spanking new single, on new label Evolve or Die, called Signs. Being ever inquisitive as I am, I decided to track down the beautiful Miss Noir and press her for a few words about her awesome new track.
TBF: Hi Jet
TBF: How did Signs come about and what was the inspiration?
JN: I Wanted to Write and Release a First Track for My Next Album which Would have Impact but Also be a Bit of a Crowd Pleaser and be Very Danceable. I Decided to Do Something Nice and Light and Not too Heavy Statement. It was Inspired by a Desire to Release a Special Valentine’s Day Track.
TBF: As an artist what is the process of creating a track like Signs?
JN: Usually I Start Off by Strumming on an Acoustic Guitar to Get a Good Melody Going and then Get on Cubase to Write the Main Track. Finally, I Write the Lyrics and Record Vocals. On ‘Signs’ I Kept the Vocals to a Minimum with a Light and Airy Feel so the Listener’s Attention was Directed More to the Music. I Wanted the Vocal Line to Merely Enhance the Track.
TBF: Is there a message in the song? If so what is it?
JN: ‘Signs’ is a Love Song. It’s about a Girl Asking a Guy to Show Her how to Win His’ Heart. Deep Down I’m a Bit of a Romantic. I Just Tend to Keep It Hidden Beneath a Veil of Cynicism.
TBF: How would you describe Signs to someone who’s not familiar with the style?
JN: Signs is a Trance Track with a Hint of a Cinematic, Orchestral Feel with a Bit of Electric Guitar Thrown In for Good Measure.
TBF: How does it feel working with Evolve Or Die?
JN: I Love Working as Part of a Team. It’s Nice to Feel like I’m Supported and that My Talent is Being Nurtured. It’s More of a Family than a Business and I Like That. In the Music Industry there Seems to be a Lot of Backstabbing and It Makes a Refreshing Change to Deal with People Who are All about the Music and Helping One Another Rather than Bitching and Gossiping.
TBF: What’s the ethos behind Evolve Or Die?
JN: Evolve Or Die is about Working Together and Collaborating with Other People in the Arts Who want to Change the Face of the Music Industry in a Positive Way. We Want to Push Boundaries and Join Forces to Have a Stronger Voice in a Greedy, Corporate World.
TBF: Does that make it easier to be more creative and/or expressive in your work?
JN: Yes,Absolutely. I Have the Freedom to Express Myself Exactly as I See Fit. There are No Rules or Restrictions Holding Me Back. Being Signed to Evolve Or Die Means I Still have Full Control Over My Career.
TBF: Are you excited about the future of Electric music in the UK?
JN: Yes, I Am. There is so Much Talent Out There. I’m Happy to Call some of These Bands and Artists My Friends. It’s a Very Exciting Time and I Feel that We are All on the Cusp of Something Truly Incredible. Being a Part of Evolve Or Die has Introduced Me to Musicians whose Work I Had Never Encountered Before. It Blows My Mind. This Country has a Lot to be Proud Of.
TBF: Finally,where can we get your single when it’s released?
JN: ‘Signs’ will be Available on Bandcamp and on The Black Flag Site.
