“America - what is this obsession I was having with you?” asks Noah Slee in his bouncy, warm single America. The artist with the New Zealand and Tongan roots needn’t look any further westwards - after all, he’s already travelled the 18,000 kilometres from Auckland to Germany. The singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist has been living in Berlin since 2015, working there with some of the city’s greats such as Jazzanova. His debut album Otherland impressed with sensitive hip-hop and casual, foot-tapping R'n'B, without neglecting to present a social critique for good measure. His velvety voice is always a bastion of calm – all that awaits to be seen is whether Noah Slee will perform the complex dance choreographies from his videos live on stage.
