Today, singer-songwriter and producer Noga Erez and collaborative partner ROUSSO share a fifth compelling new single from the forthcoming album KIDS which is set for release on March 26th via City Slang. To celebrate the release, Noga has also announced KIDS: The Livestream, two live shows streamed via NoCap on April 1st and 2nd.
“Story” is a snappy, addictive song about how couples' relationships are always a relationship between two people’s past and present. “Story” is brought to life with a captivating video, starring Erez and ROUSSO, who also provides backing on the track.

"ROUSSO is my partner in music as well as my partner in life" she explains. "This is the first time we tell a story about our relationship in a song and video. It’s a song about a couple fighting and how, in that situation, sometimes what you hear the other person say is not what they actually said. The making of this video was a 10-day couples therapy session for us. As we rehearsed the pretend fighting and martial arts moves we knew that, at times, one of us would get punched just a little too hard. It was so intense and interesting to live in this world, where our relationship comes alive in the most physical way."
“Story feat. ROUSSO” follows other perfect pop hits from KIDS like “End of the Road”("contagiously fun” - Stereogum), “VIEWS feat. Reo Cragun & ROUSSO” ("stylish & funk-heavy - Complex), “NO news on TV feat ROUSSO” (“grainy textures and potent atmospherics – Blackbook) and “You So Done” (taunting and intense - AV Club) which explores toxic personal relationships.
On April 1st and 2nd, Erez will present the world of KIDS in two live-streamed events. "It's not your typical live show. it's about pushing the limits" she says. "The making of this performance is a part of the performance itself. An army of dancers, band members & crew become part of the art. This is a world where the visual lines are constantly being blurred. And it will not be replicated."

KIDS comes packed with chart-worthy outspoken pop anthems for the 21st century. It showcases Noga’s style, growing into a crisp bombastic sound she crafts with her creative and life partner, Ori Rousso. The new album explores themes of tension and release, anxiety and remedy, and masterly melodic licks in swipes of stomping brass, all wrapped around Noga’s versatile vocals that quick-switch from clipped flow to smoky purr; from stadium chorus to street-ready beats.

ABOUT NOGA EREZ:
Noga Erez burst onto the scene with her debut album ‘Off The Radar’ in 2017, winning acclaim across the globe. While the music she makes in collaboration with her partner and co-writer, composer, and producer Ori Rousso, exploits many of the more physical, dynamic elements of electronic & pop music, it also embraces a cerebral sensitivity that’s made her one of her home city’s most exciting, idiosyncratic artists. The grainy textures and potent atmospheres forged with her synths and ingenious beats bravely straddle genres. Her 2018 standalone singles “Bad Habits” and “Cash Out (feat. SAMMUS),” and the 2019 collaboration with ECHO, “Chin Chin” saw her continuing to forge a path of uncompromising and unpredictable, gritty, truth-seeking alt-pop.
