about

Noble is a songwriter who embodies the modern struggle of being stretched too thin. His sound is caught between the eclectic blips of beat making and droning melancholy of indie rock. Living in Limbo suits Noble. While straddling this vast crevice on a tight rope, Noble adds the juggling act of matter of fact lyrics interwoven into the lush but abrasive soundscapes displaying a nomadic life through worldly melodies.

Noble is a native son of Colorado whom the wind has blown so hard that he has moved eight times in the last four years. First to attend university in Chicago and most recently to relocate in Brooklyn, NY. Dissolute is steeped in the loneliness of nomadic life. While looking for nothing, Noble has found influence in artists like The National, Jamie XX, and Son Lux.

Track Name: Coexist
Coexist

What do want?
Why are you keeping me inside?
Though I’m an animal
I am kept inside

Just can’t seem to coexist with you
Constant feelings that I can’t live without you

You can’t afford me
You can’t even make your rent
You can’t afford me
My cost is to resent
Though you adore me, I’m not heaven-sent
Track Name: Human
Human

Let’s make believe that we’re in love
Just one day pretend we give a fuck
Put on a nice dress, and I’ll throw on a tie
Let’s drink in a restaurant until we feel alright

And I don’t like you, and you don’t like me
But let’s make it feel like we’re ordinary
I know it’s stupid, but I feel excluded
Just take me home and make me feel human
Wait for me, until I feel complete
There’s nothing wrong with me

You think about somebody else
As I unbutton with one hand
There’s no one out there
Within this I reside
Let’s stay at this apartment until the day we die

Sometimes you take me by surprise
Maybe this could work
Let’s pretend tonight

But I don’t like you and you don’t like me
But let’s make it feel like we’re ordinary
I know it’s stupid, but I feel excluded
Just take me home and make me feel human
Wait for me, until I feel complete
There’s nothing wrong with me
Track Name: Chicago
Chicago
I know the wound you hold inside
Is far more vast than mine
Pull out a map, and draw a line
Then fold it up and leave it all behind

I don’t wanna push you backwards
Don’t wanna spend another summer
Pretending like I’m where I want to be
Stumbling around the Midwest
Dissecting each and every interest
Until we see transparently

Think about you walking in Chicago by yourself at night
I still worry all the time, I wish for you and hope that you’re alright

Pour a little bit more but our glass has been full
There’s nothing more we can give
Now you’re in the cut with someone
Keep picturing you on your back and
Feeling like you never did with me
Believing in divine concepts
Thought you’d somehow make your way back
Cause now I realize what I lost

It eats me up that you’re content with him

Think about you walking in Chicago by yourself at night
I still worry all the time I wish for you and hope that
Track Name: Nomadic
Nomadic
My life is over the second I step in the water
I never learned how to swim, so for that reason I flounder
Never thought I’d be stranded in the ocean
Always pictured soil beneath my feet

You’re so naïve but you exist
I move around so I can’t thrive
I’m dissolute now that you’re gone
Nomadic lost without a tribe

Somehow we will find what we need
Contraband
There’s something in your pocket
Nothing you can remove
It’s close to your equator
Amid your lines of latitude

Can you tell me why I can’t come through?
It’s like you don’t exist when I want you to
I know something’s wrong, cause I don’t see your hands
You can’t hide from me, though I’m a simple man
It’s just little white lies and halfhearted truths
It’s the city lights shining right on through
There’s a hint of red in your irises
Amongst a pale sea, it’s contraband

Manufacturing a smile
Deconstruct your every move
You’re not always self-aware
I tend to follow in your shoes
What’s occurring in your head
That makes me fathom what I’ll lose?

Can you tell me why I can’t come through?
It’s like you don’t exist when I want you to
I know something’s wrong because I don’t see your hands
You can’t hide from me, though I’m a simple man
It’s just little white lies and halfhearted truths
It’s the city lights shining right on through
There’s a hint of red in your irises
Amongst a pale sea, it’s contraband
Track Name: Contraband
Contraband
There’s something in your pocket

Can you tell me why I can’t come through?

You can’t hide from me, though I’m a simple man
It’s just little white lies and halfhearted truths

Amongst a pale sea, it’s contraband

Amongst a pale sea, it’s contraband
Track Name: Sons of Someone
Sons of Someone
Oh, what have we done?
It seems like the rest of us are alone
Oh, something’s gone wrong
Even all the best of us are the sons of someone

And I know that you’ve lost your way
And I know that you’ve been crossed once again
Everyone’s been told their life is paramount
You’ve grown up to think they’re better off without

Cause your boyfriend sucks, and he don’t give a fuck,
and you’re so fed up cause everybody knows it
You know you’re a diamond that won’t stop shining
But he says you’re rough, so you stay with him

Oh, what have we done?
It seems like the rest of us are alone
Oh, something’s gone wrong
Even all the best of us are the sons of someone

Maybe you’d feel better when he’s not around
But who’d be there for you to kick you while you’re down?

We weren’t supposed to all be foreign
So lost and
I’m someone, but who I have forgotten
You used to be certain, and someone I believed in
It sold to, conformed to your name

Oh, what have we done?
It seems like the rest of us are alone
Oh, something’s gone wrong
Even all the best of us are the sons of someone
Track Name: Titan
Titan
I’m a midnight organ donor
I sleep until the end
There’s always the one

My home’s been lost like yours
What do I do now?

Just forget your origins
I’d rather not remember why we live like this

Keep looking to the future
When will it arrive?
Masked as the past
I don’t have hope like yours
Cynicism now

Just forget your origins
I’d rather not remember why we live like this
