Something Beautiful (Album)
Something Beautiful is the debut album from Albuquerque based band, The Noms. The first track of the album, Home, welcomes the listener with the soulful voice of Michelle Mares and the smooth groove of the rest of the group. Although this is the single from the album, The Noms aren't defined by just one sound. Crossing genres immediately, the toe-tapping, upbeat folky track, This Road, shows the group's other side. From there, the rest of the album is a musical journey that explores the group's different musical influences and ability to seamlessly blend different instruments and sounds. Listening to the album can take one on an emotional journey. From tears to joy, The Noms capture human emotion that, in the end, one can't help but smile and feel uplifted. Rest in Me, the final track on the album, is a perfect representation of this musical journey. The grande finale is a beautifully orchestrated song that goes from a simple guitar to a full band sound. This track shows how dynamic the group truly is. The listener is sent off with the vocals and clapping of the groups friends and family, that will leave one humming the melody for days. Expect big things from The Noms in the near future.
