Noga Erez Unveils New Video, Announces Debut Album

January 31, 2017

Noga Erez's breathtaking debut will be out 2 June 2017 on City Slang, and as a taster she has shared a video for stinging new track "Pity".

Noga on "Pity" - "The song “Pity” was influenced by a sexual assault case that happened a few years ago. What made it even more alarming and upsetting for me was the fact that it was documented by several different people who were there when it happened. People stood by and willingly chose to film on their smartphones and then upload the videos and share them online. The presence of cameras and the violation of the victims rights and respect was completely disregarded beyond measure.

This is the second time we had a chance to work on a video with talented directors 'Zhang & Knight'. For them, as for us, the horrifying story was extremely powerful and chilling. We decided to focus on the video/documenting angle, isolating it from the rest of the story. Creating a performance based video, shooting me from many different camera angles, while playing the footage live on screens behind me. Displaying how quickly and easily video documentation becomes shared, publicised and distorted. Many times, without the person's knowledge, consent and without accountability."
