“It’s perfect. You are hands down my favourite songwriter and lyricist. I could listen to this on repeat. It’s flawless and you’re brilliant. Very grateful for your music.” 5/5
– Claire Mooney, Triple J on “Don’t Act Like You Know Me”
“First heard Noah play this live and it gave me that tingly feeling that made me think it was (especially) special in his set. Power, heart, oddity – it’s just that good.” 4.5/5
-Dave Ruby Howe, Triple J on “Holding On”
Perth darling Noah Dillon and his four piece alt-rock band have already had a thrilling 2019, being nominated for awards (WAM Song of the year award in the pop category for “You Did It To Yourself”), garnering Triple J plays and rave reviews on new single “Don’t Act Like You Know Me”, and now they’re elated to announce their debut EP ‘Everything Melts’.
You can catch Noah Dillon playing all over the country, touring nationally and internationally. Hitting Bigsound in Brisbane, followed by a Melbourne appearance at The Post Office Hotel, before heading to Singapore for Music Matters festival, and then heading everywhere in WA including playing Wave Rock Weekender festival, the post-game party at Reclink Community Cup Fremantle, and more east coast dates in October.
The first single is out now, Written at the beginning of 2019, Dillon explains that “Don’t Act Like You Know Me” is about relationship breakdowns, miscommunication and uninformed judgement.“The song stems from the feeling that you don’t know someone you were once close to. During the writing period, I felt as if I couldn’t escape communicating on a relatively superficial level with people around me and couldn’t always portray the person I wanted to be. No one really knows what the people around them are going through and the superficial nature of interactions can make it hard to grasp who people really are and how they’ve changed”.
For this track, the band consisting of Noah Dillon (vocals, guitar), Jack Hill (drums), Sam Rocchi (lead guitar), Claudia Genovese (bass) and friend Fraeya Evans helping with backing Vocals, stuck with a winning formula. The song was recorded at Tuna-fish studios in Fremantle with the amazing Broderick Madden-Scott and Ryan Brennan (Phantastic Ferniture) jumping on board for mixing duties.
The band have been wildly successful since the release of their first single, “The Man I’m Not“, in 2017 . Their songs have received hundreds of thousands of streams on Spotify along with community radio and nation radio airplay across Australia. The band say that while they play under Noah’s name, there are large amounts of creative input by all members and their sole purpose is to portray the message of their songs.
The band’s music is a genre bending mix of singer-songwriter inspirations such as Bob Dylan and Courtney Barnett with the tear-jerking attitude of Modest Mouse and Alex G creating a unique kaleidoscope of songs that’ll make you question who you are.
