lyrics

We may never lock eyes, cause it’s bad exposure
anything but hard times seem to wash away,
and we’re not walking, we fly
a pair of hasty vultures
as these laws apply
our hearts decay

She made damn sure we
Never gon’ be friends (4x)

I’m burning novels online
modern Allan Poe, yea 
make confetti of times
you made thoughts of trees
ain’t it shockin love dies
only skulls and bones left
and these laws apply
till the end of me

it’s wild if i think about it
our lives are tied yet divided 
it might be fine, but I doubt it
boo, you know you’re too sensitive

you’re right to despise surprises
and why I might think you like it
in spite of feeling uninvited
no matter how I beg or plead you still made damn sure we

Never gon’ be friends 
She made damn sure we
Never ton’ be friends (3x)

For someone managing to fuse IDM, Indie and Soul so seamlessly into danceable beats and catchy melodies, 23 year old Noah McBeth (alias NoMBe) has kept a low profile on the LA music radar. A native of Heidelberg, Germany, the classical pianist turned producer wears the many hats of composer, singer/songwriter & engineer effortlessly.

NoMBe continues to make use of a wide range of obscure samples while leaving his own signature with a unique vocal sound, ranging from a strong bluesy tone to a chilly sweet falsetto.

His lyrics touch on topics like shady women, drunk uncles and loose morals, sticking to only the most delightful things. Since moving to Los Angeles from NYC in 2013, NoMBe has produced a number of up and coming artists while finishing up his own releases, making it his mission to take today’s world of “genre-less” music by storm.
