The Chief, the brother of Our Kid, the best friend of Russell Brand and the owner of the legendary mouth who wished Damon Albarn would drop-down-dead from “cancer”: Noel Thomas David Gallagher. Five years on from the destruction of Oasis; the elder of the famous Gallagher duo and frontman of Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, is poised and prepared to make history, by releasing his bands follow up album to the 2011 self-titled debut. Teasing the release of Chasing Yesterday, available for purchase in March 2015; Noel Gallagher has announced that ‘In The Heat Of The Moment‘ will be the lead single to be taken from the brand new Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds’ record.
Channelling the similar western theme, which was present in Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, the first single to be taken from Chasing Yesterday, ‘In The Heat Of The Moment‘, is an astonishing boast of power; reasserting Noel Gallagher’s claim on the music throne.
Opening with a resounding chorus of “Nah Nah Nah”, ‘In The Heat Of The Moment‘ is a constant flux between moody riffs and sparkling passion. During his almighty vocal performance, The Godlike Genius asks the subject of his astonishingly cryptic track, to confirm whether they actually have “touched the face of God“. Knowing Gallagher, this rhetorical question has probably been used in self-promotion as, obviously, he is NME’s Godlike Genius of course.
The track reaches its peak in the final chorus before splitting off and fading out, leaving the listener with plumping Goosebumps and an omnipresent urge to strike the repeat button time after time. Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds’ new track, ‘In The Heat Of The Moment‘ is something that deserves to be universally celebrated, through its sheer, radiating power and typical Noel Gallagher stamp. Well done Chief.
