Noémie Wolfs – Let Me Down

Three years after leaving Hooverphonic and two years after releasing her wonderful solo album Hunt You, one of Belgium’s most talented voices, Noémie Wolfs, is back with a new single. Let Me Down is new in every respect. Produced by Yong Yello, a young producer from Antwerp, it has a completely different sound than her previous material. Fans of Portishead or fellow-Belgian Selah Sue are sure to like this.

The singer says about this transition: “I had this idea to combine my kind of pop music with oldskool hip-hop drum loops. Yello was the ideal person to try and make this work, since he has a background as a beatmaker. (…) The violins you hear in the intro of the song are samples that we found on old and shady records from the forties and fifties. It was very cool to work in that ‘cut and paste’ kind of way.”

Lyrically, Let Me Down is the story of two opposites. She’s in it for the tease, he’s in it for the ride. Wolfs: “I like to write about strong women who take control, mainly because I’m just like that. I don’t see Let Me Down as an autobiographical story, but there are lots of elements in the story that I can relate to.”
