Originally from England, Speelburg, also known as Noah Sacré, crafts what he calls “pop music for important people” and moved to Los Angeles in search of the weather reminiscent of his upbringing in the south of France. During his time in Great Britain, he made waves with “Headlights,” earning BBC Radio 1’s Chillest Record of the Week and praise from Clash magazine for his “startlingly unique electro-pop” sound. Pigeons & Planes went further, stating that “Speelburg is a force to be reckoned with.”
The Belgian-American musician has completed work on two solo albums, with the second set to be released first, creating a mysterious distinction only he understands. “Character Actor,” due in late summer 2019, is a collection of ten songs accompanied by “Arcobaleno,” a (very) short film directed by Speelburg himself.
Speelburg’s creativity extends beyond music into his music videos. Whether referencing three Sofia Coppola films in “Screener Season,” hand-drawing and animating the video for “Headlights” (dubbed by Clash as “a corker” in true English fashion), or showcasing his style in short-shorts and watermelon in the upcoming single “Oxy Cotton Candy,” he proves to be not only an innovative musician but also a visually captivating artist.
