Petite Noir has shared his new song ‘Numbers’.
The Congolese artist’s emphatic originality draws on the different aspects of his heritage; born in Belgium, raised in South Africa, his diasporic experiences link together continents, alongside vastly different musical styles.
The architect of noirwave, his singular approach reaches another milestone on bruised new single ‘Numbers’. A song that affords him space to lay claim to openness, the Tropics-powered production is the bedrock for a stellar vocal.
A song that deals with different aspects of a breakup, Petite Noir seems to conclude that troubled times are sent to test us – and we had best buckle up if we want to survive.
“‘Numbers’ is about cycles, and getting to the point where a relationship starts to feel like a war. We are left to fight for ourselves, but at the same time, we feel guided because the dark times are needed for us to grow.”
