With her first full UK tour kicking off at Simple Things in Bristol this weekend, Tel Aviv’s fiercest star, Noga Erez, has shared a new video for her song “Balkada”.

One of the many stand-out cuts from her debut album Off The Radar, which came out in June on City Slang, “Balkada” is about the relationship between an artist and their audience and the intimate bond that develops.

While the artist is presented as super-human or divine being and appears to be on the dominant side of the relationship, the opposite is actually true” explains Erez. “The idea of idolization and worship in their obsessive and blind form led us to the commonly used comparison between art and religion – between creativity and creation, and how the two can easily look the same and cross over. We took a walk around Tel Aviv – a non-religious city, sometimes looked at as a ‘sin city’ in the middle of a country dominated by religion. Our objective was to search for ‘holiness’ and moments of ‘pureness’ in the filth and ugliness that is the “sin city”.
