If you’ve ever gone through a breakup that you didn’t want to happen, you know how hard it is to get past. We reminisce on the good times and think about what we could have done to keep the connection alive. Its absence can create an emptiness in our heart and mind, as we tend to give little parts of ourselves to the people in our lives. They can come in the form of secrets and deep emotions, such as sadness or anger. In his new upbeat single, “Smaller Pieces,” Noah Pearce candidly reflects on how hard it is to get over a breakup. Those who are currently going through the same situation will relate to the deep emotion in his words and know that they are not alone.
The instrumentation and lyrics of “Smaller Pieces” both work to illustrate how hard Pearce is working to get over the rough patch of a breakup. The electric guitar in the beginning during the first verse had a defiant sound to me. It backs lyrics such as, “Six months on and I can’t stop from thinking up something about you.” The music starts to become more upbeat on the words, “my emotions knocking down the door.” The chorus then reaches its boiling point with the words “I don’t wanna live without it.” The guitar from the beginning is now layered with drums and other elements that give it a sort of disco sound. The second verse and chorus follow a similar pattern as Pearce sings “Fading my memories change from grey to colorful. Can’t work out if we gave up way too fast.” Noah Pearce’s main goal in writing music is to be himself, and I think he certainly achieves it with this song. It takes great courage to show this display of deep emotion.
Noah Pearce is a singer/songwriter who was born in Johannesburg, South Africa. He later moved to Luxembourg where he spent the majority of his childhood. When he was younger, Pearce found music to be a welcome escape from everyday life. His talent blossomed into a musical career. “Smaller Pieces” comes off Pearce’s latest EP Domicile. This album also has his other song, “Ballet Dancer.” Similar to “Smaller Pieces,” the track is also an upbeat song about navigating a breakup. It shot up to the #4 spot in the Chartbreaker Chart on Luxembourg’s Eldoradio. I enjoyed reviewing Noah Pearce’s music and can’t wait to see what he comes up with next.
