Watch: Noa Deane Stars In New Feature Length "Ru. Bu 994"
Aggressive Progressive: ten minutes of raw Australian power
For the last nine months, Noa Deane has bounced around the globe, usually with his right-hand man and collaborator, Mikey Mallalieu aka MALLMIC, working on his follow up to last year's HeadNoise.
His full-length Volcom arrival flick, which netted him accolades galore, included the heaviest pit to ankle-breaker 'oop at North Point, and was always going to be hard to top.
But Noa's new flick "Ru. Bu 994" is gnarly, regardless of how high your expectations of young ND. His railwork and raw, tree trunk power is more refined, his airs are just as boned-out and full-on, and his comfort level in heaving pits is on full display. We're also quite happy with his choice of soundtrack, the opening Slayer track and Husker Du the perfect sonic landscape to Noa's jagged-edged, distortion-heavy approach.
