A talented independent artist from Melbourne, Noah Vernon has been writing and releasing music for eight years now, carving out a bold, contemporary pop sound. Most recently, Noah has taken lead from a cinema cult classic to create his latest song, delivering an evocative pop track that dives into the harsh feelings of overcoming someone who has far too much power over you.

One of the standout elements of 'Donnie Darko' is its poignant lyrics, which emotive lines like "You're just a cameo, but it's my movie though" hitting hard and capturing the essence of the track. Through the vibrant pop sound, Noah sings about reclaiming your own narrative and breaking free from controlling forces. Vernon's delivery is nothing short of mesmerizing, infusing each word with palpable emotion that cuts straight to the core.

The instrumentation in the track is equally impressive, seamlessly transitioning from stripped-down guitar melodies to explosive bass and drums. Throughout, Noah creates a chaotic and deeply immersive pop-rock sound that demands repeat listens. Vernon's voice serves as the perfect complement to the rich musical backdrop, adding an extra layer of depth and complexity to an already stellar track.

Speaking about the new single, Noah explained, "'Donnie Darko' is about someone who can have so much control over you. It's overcoming them and realising how much better you are without them in your life. The song is for listeners to perceive the themes how they want. A toxic relationship, A friendship fallout, or confronting mistreatment from others. We've all had a 'Donnie Darko' in our life before."

Having honed his craft through years of musical theatre and choir performances, Vernon's talent is undeniable. With over 7,000 monthly streams on Spotify and a diverse catalogue spanning multiple genres, it's clear that he's destined for success, and 'Donnie Darko' is just the beginning of what promises to be a remarkable journey.
