Noemi Smorra has just released the video of her single This Song. The clip has been entirely recorded in Berlin by the multi-awarded Italian filmmaker and fashion photographer Livia Alcalde, with the participation of Raphael Vom Berg and Frederica Taby Lee. It deals, elegantly and soberly in black and white, with the difficult theme of overcoming the physical and aesthetic barriers of the contemporary youth world, where appearance is often valued much more than substance.
Because of its social import, the clip has been screened some weeks ago in a New York preview at the FTL Moda Show, for the Fashion Week 2016, during the event that featured as a protagonist on the catwalk the Indian model Reshma Qureshi, disfigured by acid, who has been engaged for years in giving voice and hope to victims of violence. The single This Song—signed by Marta Venturini, Valerio Errico and Kathleen Hagen for the musical editions Warner Chappell, Maqueta Records and Limited Music Trade—is the last excerpt in chronological order from the EP Trasparente by Noemi Smorra, singer and actress known to the Italian public at large for having performed the role of Lucia Mondella in the three stagings of the musical “I Promessi Sposi – opera moderna” under the direction of Michele Guardì.
Last year Noemi published her first discographic work in the wave of the success of the single Golden Leaves, which has placed her on the international stage in a duet with the Russian popstar Lena Katina (ex t.A.T.u.) with whom she has performed several times in Europe. Currently Noemi is finishing her new album, which she has not only performed but also authored, with the artistic production of Fernando Alba of Maqueta Records and the collaboration of authors and musicians belonging to the independent scene, both Italian and foreign. The rock-pop album, targeted to an international public, will feature pieces in English, Spanish, and Italian language.
