Noosa – “Walk On By”

It may not be new, but it’s important.

Noosa

Originally released in 2013 in anticipation for the album Wonderland, Noosa’s “Walk On By” has amassed a huge number of listens and fans, and really this should not come as a surprise.

With powerful piano chords bringing the song in, we are quickly overwhelmed by the beauty of Noosa’s lovelorn lyrics.

The chorus is especially powerful:

You’re showing me colors of the sky
But all I see grey
You lost me when you lied
Promise me but you never try
Secrets in your eyes
You go and run, I’ll hide
You’re showing me colors of the sky
But all I see grey
You lost me when you lied
I don’t ever wanna be crowned just another prize
It breaks my heart

Honestly, I think it’s surprising this song (and album) wasn’t a bigger hit, especially considering Noosa’s stylistic similarities to such stars as Lana Del Rey and Lorde.

Give it a listen:
