Soleil – “Noise”

Soleil flexes her vocal range in a powerful, new song, “Noise”. The piano-guided, electronic-infused track has a dark vibe, which is further complemented by the doomy music video that accompanies it. “Noise” was inspired by a horrific situation Soleil witnessed but she gave the story a creative twist. “…the husband killed his wife and tried to bury her in the backyard. The whole situation really shook me, and led me to writing ‘Noise’,” says the Miami-based New Yorker.
