Portland pop R&B artist Courtney Noe isn’t afraid to take you there. Her lead single, “Woman On The Prowl,” off her upcoming EP Bad Attitude, is just the right amount of sassy, pop/rock, and unabashed sexuality to keep you satiated until Bad Attitude’s release.
Courtney Noe is an authentic artist through and through- she knows what she wants and how to get it. Noe’s been in the professional music game since the release of her first EP Invisible Crown in 2016. Her bio- which is admittedly “under construction” on her website- details facts about her that makes her all the more relatable: she loves corgis, she has constant resting bitch face, she designs her own costumes, and she’s all for girl power and saving the environment. She describes herself as “quick-witted” and “sassy” and based on “Woman On The Prowl,” I’d whole-heartedly agree.
“Woman On The Prowl” is an unapologetically sex-positive track that narrates Noe’s desire for a one-night stand while at a bar. Much like her message of encouraging women to assert their agency, especially sexually, her raw-edged, cutting vocals are equally assertive, telling listeners “I walk in the bar and I pick you out/ ‘Cause I know what I want and I have no doubts.” Her rich, full tone and the pulsing synths, in contrast with more stripped-down moments where she belts in her higher register, gives the song the right amount of sex-appeal and mystery.
Make sure to add “Woman On The Prowl” to your “going out” playlist or when you want to hype yourself up to be bold, make that move, and be “on the prowl”.
Listen to “Woman On The Prowl” on Spotify, YouTube, and Apple Music. Keep up with Courtney and the details on the release of Bad Attitude on Courtney’s website, Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.
