Approved last year with her debut single ‘Dance While You Shoot’, Noga Erez has now announced her debut album. ‘Off The Radar’ will be released on 2 Jun, with new single ‘Pity’ out now.

“The song ‘Pity’ was influenced by a sexual assault case that happened a few years ago”, explains Erez. “What made it even more alarming and upsetting for me was the fact that it was documented by several different people who were there when it happened. People stood by and willingly chose to film on their smartphones and then upload the videos and share them online. The presence of cameras and the violation of the victim’s rights and respect was completely disregarded beyond measure”.

Of the accompanying video, she says: “This is the second time we had a chance to work on a video with talented directors Zhang + Knight. For them, as for us, the horrifying story was extremely powerful and chilling. We decided to focus on the video/documenting angle, isolating it from the rest of the story. Creating a performance based video, shooting me from many different camera angles, while playing the footage live on screens behind me. Displaying how quickly and easily video documentation becomes shared, publicised and distorted. Many times, it’s done so without the person’s knowledge, consent and without accountability”.
