Noiserv’s album is among the 25 albums nominated for the 11th edition of this European award, and was proposed by the members of the Association of Musicians, Artists and Independent Publishers (AMEI), integrated in IMPALA.
With the new album finished practically in 2019, David Santos started 2020 to promote each of the songs, accompanied by videos, made in creative work with the production company from Casota Collective.
Despite the restrictive measures to contain the covid-19 pandemic and which limited cultural activity, Noiserv still managed to make a small tour of the country, showing new songs.
This week, it released “Live on tape”, a live album that brings together songs recorded in concerts that it gave in 2020. The album came out in a limited edition in cassette format, with 13 songs recorded live in the 12 rooms where Noiserv passed, at the end of last year.
The IMPALA association launched the award for the best European independent album of the year in 2011, with the aim of celebrating “the breadth and diversity of independent talent in Europe”.
In previous editions, the Portuguese albums “Miramar“, by the duo Miramar, “Chapels“, by Old Jerusalem, “Antwerpen“, by Surma, “Drifter“, by First Breath After Coma, “Building Waves“, by Glockenwise, “Heart & Spine“, by Frankie Chavez, and “Peixe: Avião“, by Peixe: Avião were nominated, among others.
