Noosa lands single on Hypem Top Tracks of 2012 List

The Brooklyn pop duo Noosa (Sky Barbarick and the invisible Matt Buszko) doesn't seem to ever play live, but this is not preventing them from generating a lot of interest - ah, the power of good music! Their recent single "Walk On By" (Sound Remedy Remix, streaming below) made it onto Hype Machine's top tracks of 2012 list. The single (a ballad in the original version found here) is a sweetly sad song, where wholly feeling lyrics cut deep with Sky's ethereal voice. And oh, that voice. It's Regina Spektor-esque, in that it can be fluttery and throaty at the same time. It's the perfect grounding component to Noosa’s gorgeous sweeping dream pop. - Corinne Bagish


NYC electro-pop artists on the rise: Noosa

Noosa is for those late nights where for a variety of reasons, be they heartsickness, dance exhaustion, drugs or all three, you have come to occupy a dream space where you're no longer entirely sure if the music you're hearing is coming from your head or from the DJ. Singer/retro-knob twirlers Sky Barbarick and Matt Buszko occupy this space perfectly. Their hypnotic first single 'Fear of Love,' while coming pretty much out of nowhere, has stuck like glue to the meatpacking district since it first arrived back in March. Now the mysterious pair have just released a strong self-titled EP, and songs like the volleyball game-ready 'Sail' (streaming) and the folksy 'Mirrors in the Moonlight' give us a surprising breadth of material that work well against 'Fear of Love's' colder electronics.

A confident start from a ambitious group just beginning their journey. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets) - This band submitted their music to The Deli for review here.
