Breakout Irish indie rock band N.O.A.H comprises of three lifelong friends Ryan Hill, Adam Rooney, and Ronan Hynes.
N.O.A.H formed back in January 2020, on the cusp of a global pandemic! (Great timing) After finishing in college (BIMM Dublin and MU) the group decided to reform an old musical endeavour. Obsessed with the idea of creating something new and a relentless desire to be heard, a fresh canvas was needed. Thus the band took inspiration in its naming from the biblical story of ‘Noah and the Ark’, the ultimate new beginnings story.
After spending months writing, recording and developing as a band, N.O.A.H finally released their debut single ‘Shine’ in September 2020. The track picked up a lot of press, N.O.A.H even recorded an exclusive acoustic rendition of Shine for radio presenter Laura Whitmore on BBC5 Live in the UK. Further interest was shown from popular Irish stations such as RTE2 FM, Spin 1038 and Corks Red Fm achieving play-listings and earning various spots as ‘Track of The Week’. With word spreading fast and the ever growing press, N.O.A.H signed with Natasha Bents newly founded Mother Artists Live Agency (Foster The People, Idles, CMAT). The band even made their first TV appearance on RTÉ Six One News to talk about their good news story and journey to date.
Last October the band released their debut Ep ‘Echoes of the Night’ produced by Grammy Winning Ruadhri Cushnan. The EP is a blistering project that has grabbed the attention of those on the international music scene, not just the rock and noise genres. The past few months have also seen the band dip their toes in the UK market. Working with Lander Pr the band secured regional UK radio play as well as a their UK debut TV appearance on CBBC ‘Saturday Mashup’ the guys performed live on the show as well as taking part in games and comedy skits throughout. N.O.A.H also performed on Virgin Media Television 6’ O’Clock Show on May 27th.
‘Stay Here’ is N.O.A.H’s latest release, while being self produced it was mixed and finessed by Grammy Winning Ruadhri Cushnan. With this latest release, N.O.A.H indulges in all things ‘indie-synth-pop’, from groovy bass lines, 80’s inspired synths and an irresistible chorus, this tune has it all. Amongst the noise, the lyrics depict raw and honest story telling. The lyricist observes, confronts and comforts a friend in need, offering an unconditional, selfless vow to help without need of recognition.
“Stay Here’ is a song we’ve always wanted to make, it’s musically explorative and pulls from a multitude of influences that we have never really shown before.” – N.O.A.H
It’s certainly an exciting time for N.O.A.H, having garnered thousands of streams, sold out multiple venues, signing with a major UK agency, supporting The Coronas in Ulster Hall, to playing Main Stage at Sea Sessions 2022 as well as playing Irelands leading festival Electric Picnic and being showcased at this years Ireland Music Week
