Press: Hollywood Girl by Tyson Noir


The last few years in the UK have seen an abundance of unique artists trying to bring R&B back to headier heights by taking current trends and adapting R&B elements in their sound. This has happened with several talented acts coming through forcing their music into the forefront. One of the bright shining emerging lights from the current scene is Bristol-based R&B singer/songwriter Tyson Noir.

Introducing his musical talent to the masses last year with his five track explorative Dreaming in Colour EP (which received rave reviews from many influential online platforms); Tyson is back to wet sonic appetites with his latest versatile offering ‘Hollywood Girl‘ with aspiring UK rapper Bajerrbay plus production from one of the UK’s rising talents Maleek Berry.

From its striking cacophony and atmospheric soundscape of horns, claps, screams, harmonies, drums, distorted chopped and screwed voices to its silky smooth vocals and its epic-sounding upbeat production – this infectious well – executed track has it all. And with Bajerrbay’s rap, it adds a fun dose of swagging and bragging to elevate the track to an upper echelon. ‘Hollywood Girl‘ packs an addictive professional punch that captures the listener’s attention and is a really good fresh juxtaposition of many influences that Tyson Noir is inspired by as well as the current sounds that the UK audience love.

Taking on the now-popular elements of Hip-Hop oriented Trap music and the chopped and screwed sound plus combining it on this release with his brand of R&B, Afrobeats and Pop. Tyson gives an observational account of the general attitudes of expensive girls with high stadards chasing the trappings of money and the good life as well as the “bad girl appearing to be good” analogy.
