World Premiere: Noémie Wolfs Releases New Single ‘Let Me Down’

Belgian singer Noémie Wolfs has been laying low since releasing ‘Hunt You’ in early 2016, which was her first solo album after exiting Hooverphonic. Now, after two years, the singer has been working on new music and is ready to begin a new era.

Enfnts Terribles has the honor to exclusively premier Noémie Wolfs’ long-awaited new single ‘Let Me Down’.

Let Me Down

Let Me Down‘ is a poppy song with old-school hip-hop influences. It’s a story of two complete opposites. “She’s in it for the tease, he’s in it for the ride. I love to write about strong women who take matters into their own hands,” said Noémie Wolfs when she talked to us about it. “This isn’t an autobiographical story, but there certainly are some elements in the story that I can strongly relate to. Love can be a dangerous thing if you don’t know how to handle it!”

The song ‘Let Me Down’ is the first single from an upcoming album that will be something different from the singer’s usual work. Production is in the hands of Yong Yello, who’s also working with one of our latest cover stars Glints. For ‘Let Me Down’ they started with an old school hip hop drum loop and then built the song around it. The violins at the beginning of the song are samples from the ’50s.

The Lyric video

For the lyric video, Noémie Wolfs collaborated with Danish visual artist Boris Peianov. She discovered his work on Instagram and immediately fell in love with his work. Especially his collage technique fits perfectly with the use of samples Noémie Wolfs and Yong Yello used to produce the song. The photos in the video are made by Alessandra Ruyten, a photographer who only works with polaroids. The idea of having just one original of each image is something that fascinates Noémie Wolfs in this time of mass production and social media.

‘Let Me Down’ is out now worldwide. Watch the lyric video below and make sure to keep an eye on Noémie Wolfs! We might have heard some songs of the upcoming album and it’s one of the best things Noémie Wolfs has ever done, including her time at Hooverphonic. (There, we said it.)
