Artist Of The Week


Pedro Fidalgo who goes by the artist name Noble, is firmly proving to be one of the most prominent music acts on Portuguese soil. With just two full-length albums under his belt, he has already earned success with his singles, including “Honey,” which quickly became a radio hit soon after its release and was featured as the opening theme for the Portuguese soap opera Amar Depois de Amar. He’s also had success with the single “Beautiful,” taken from his sophomore album Secrets, an ode to those who have helped him not only during the beginning of his career, but also during his journey to the top of the music charts in his native country, released earlier this year. With his latest effort, “Lost In You,” Noble ventures into the themes of love and desire, with a newfound sound based on danceable grooves and bolder rhythms which is a sound clash of pop meets The Strokes and Arctic Monkeys! The track is the first taste of new material he’s been working on and works as a recollection of memories from idyllic moments spent with a special someone, a love kindled time and again, and the wish for such ephemeral moments to become everlasting.
