Noga Erez NO NEWS ON TV
June 22, 2020
Tel-Aviv based artist Noga Erez releases “NO news on TV,” an up-beat bop that she and her partner Ori Rousso wrote during the COVID-19 pandemic. The track is seamlessly guided by Noga and Ori's sleek production and provides a warning against apathy and giving into paralysis and fear, particularly now when there is so much to care about. The song’s music video, which is also out now, is a lesson in what happens when we seek apathy’s illusion of peace of mind.

Speaking on the song, Erez comments: "This song was written during a period where I had more time than I've had in a decade. I was able to sit down and work my ass off on new music without any emails disturbing the silence. No notifications, nothing. I wanted to write a song that talked about that. I felt a deep need to imagine what it would be like to live in a world with no politics, money, grit, racism or violence.
As I write these words people in America and all over the world are fighting for justice for the black community. It’s tragic and saddening that in this day and age we still have to deal with racism. But this fight is so extremely important, not just for the black community in the US but for any person who suffers from oppression and mistreatment. The world couldn’t have been more opposite than the world that I’ve imagined while sitting in the silence of my apartment in a shut down city during lockdown.
