The streets is talking — and the Sundance Channel is listening.
The network has teamed up with Nokia Music for a new six-part documentary series titled New American Noise, and you can watch an exclusive preview of it here.
The project provides a window into the music scenes percolating in six key cities around the country, and the clip below offers a sneak peek at four of those locales: the atmospheric skies and indie-chill of Portland, the daggering-friendly vibes emanating from New Orleans’ bounce movement, the repurposed underground scene in gritty Detroit, and the busy streets where sub-rosa rap thrives in New York City (particularly Brooklyn).
In addition to those places, the series will include portraits of the Los Angeles and Atlanta scenes. The filmmakers behind the project include Abteen Bagheri (who handled New Orleans and Portland), Emily Kai Bock (NYC), Bob Harlow (Detroit), and Tyrone Lebon (ATL and LA).
The series will premiere on the Sundance Channel Jan. 18, but until then, get a taste of things to come in the video below:
