Noirre explains, “Nostalgia was my chance to commemorate my coming of age from being a teenager to an adult. I felt that it was very important to be totally honest in my writing and make a record that people could easily connect with; whether they are going through it - or have been through it and remember that feeling. I’m at a really interesting point in life where I’m starting adulthood and leaving behind all the comforts and steadiness that you rely on at a young age. Nothing is stationary and everything is in motion. I find myself constantly reliving moments in my head that play like 8mm clips you’d find in the attic behind the dusty box of scarves and Dad’s little league trophies. I’m obsessed with these pieces of footage and every song that I write starts as a scene with the sound off. I play the composer role and try to write the score that will ultimately string these scenes into a feature full-length. I don’t know if it’s just nostalgia, or simply the pains of growing up, but in the past few years it’s forced me to create in this way because I feel it’s a natural and necessary part of exploring my own life.”
Noirre’s music video for “Real” was shot by Rand Courtney from Creative Deviants (and former One Tree Hill & Dawson’s Creek actor). Noirre completed a U.S. West Coast tour in March 2016 and will be playing live shows through this summer in support of Nostalgia. In parallel, Noirre also produced fellow artist, NATVE’s, debut EP which was released on Pool Swimmer Records on May 24, 2016.
