On August 13th, in addition to all the other amazing music the world received, we got a new track from goodboy noah featuring Brasstracks. Anything featuring Brasstracks makes it onto my radar. Their production style is amazing, and their instrumentals are phenomenal. Overall, “Backseat” is a solid track with amazing production that tells a story about falling in love, which is nowhere near a unique concept, but goodboy noah has found a way to make it his own.
goodboy noah has said “‘Backseat’ feels like the start of a new sound for me. I tried to make it timeless and classic, while remaining true to myself, sonically and lyrically. And Brasstracks ran it into the end zone with an insane brass section.” If this is the new sound, this is going to be a phenomenal career. It’s hard to sound bad working with Brasstracks, yes, but the production on noah’s vocals is reminiscent of Anderson .Paak’s “JEWELZ,” and anyone who is trying to emulate .Paak clearly cares about music.
This is the first single from goodboy noah’s upcoming sophomore EP. Following the success of his debut EP, nice, goodboy noah has partnered with companies like Warby Parker and Pilot Pen. In addition, he has worked with writers like “Micah Gordon (Cautious Clay, Neon Trees), Dan Henig (ZAYN, Noah Cyrus, Chelsea Cutler), Jake Torrey (BTS, Justin Bieber, John Legend) and Alex Sacco (Peach Tree Rascals, Conor Matthews).” Time will tell where goodboy noah goes, but if “Backseat” is any indication of his trajectory, he’ll be alright.
