From Annoying Dates to Emo Rock Mastery: Noukie's Latest Single is a Rally Cry for the Frustrated Heart.

Noukie, the Dutch Emo Rocker now based in Solvesborg, Sweden, showcases her unparalleled ability to transform life's lemons into lyrical lemonade with her latest single, "Custom Nightmare". This track, hailing from her forthcoming EP 'HEALING 101', is a powerful anthem born from a subway ride home after a disappointing date. I love the vibe! Noukie took this frustration and fueled her creative fire but also birthed a song that resonates with anyone who's navigated the treacherous waters of modern dating.

Produced by Fredrik Bergström and featuring a collaboration with Izzy von Scarecrow, "Custom Nightmare" stands as a testament to Noukie's resilience and artistic evolution. After moving to Sweden for love and overcoming a year of illness that delayed her music, Noukie's determination to press on is evident in this robust track, which promises to be a summer anthem for those emboldened by the trials of young adulthood and the quest for identity amidst chaos.

Energy is on point, and the production is curious. There's an air of Avril Lavigne but there's something heavier than that too. Blink-182 maybe? It's futuristic, it takes experimental pop punk through to a new realm. It's unique. It's very busy. But it all works!

"Custom Nightmare" screams of defiance and self-assertion. Her lyrics serve as a cathartic release, venting the frustration of repetitive, unfulfilling encounters, while simultaneously empowering listeners to reclaim their voice and space in a relationship. We've all been there, right? When dating goes wrong you just need to go ahead and scream it out in one form or another. Here, it comes in the form of a catchy chorus and raw emotional depth. Best served COLD.

Noukie, signed to Bark At Your Owner label, continues to champion diversity and representation in the music industry where she helps pave the way for women, transgender, and LGBTQ+ artists.
