A three-headed dragon, a trio of gentlemen residing in The Netherlands who create and perform music in the indie-rock genre. Influences are such acts as Nirvana, The Cure, Sonic Youth and Massive Attack. Combined with dense and abstract poetry, Noblesse create a sound that is brooding, explosive and slick at the same time. Perhaps what Radiohead would have sounded like if they were born in Seattle.
Operating for several years in the underrated Dutch art-rock scene, the band has played extensively in alternative venues and small theaters but also at known festivals such as State-X New Forms, TodaysArt, Vestrock and at venues such as Paard, Melkweg and Paradiso. Noblesse supported major acts such as Silversun Pickups and played gigs in London, Tel-Aviv and Frankfurt, as well as international festivals such as Reeperbahn in Hamburg and New Sound in Vienna. Noblesse’s live shows are intense and dynamic, often incorporating video-art and even choreography.
Noblesse made their debut with the well-received Sound The Alarm followed by We Are Not Humanity, a soundtrack to a dance-theater show of the same name. This soundtrack was produced by Gordon Raphael, producer of The Strokes.
The new album, Nothingisanything, was released in early 2015 by Elevate Records and received rave reviews in Dutch and Belgium press.
