With White Noise, Noah Gundersen continues his journey away from the rather anaemic acoustic balladry of old. This is a step up in songwriting, production and emotional heft that, with its touches of synth and Gundersen’s occasional swooning falsetto, warrants favourable comparison with Perfume Genius’s excellent recent albums. “After All” and especially “Sweet Talker” best exhibit this new ambition, though less successful are some banal attempts at sparse Josh Ritter-ish folk that sit awkwardly on an album that, thanks to Gundersen’s sonic imagination and maturing sense of songcraft, otherwise succeeds.
