Nuria Bustles With Gleaming Empowerment On New Single

A powerful embodiment of brooding neon bubbles and simmering indie pop, the brand new track Fucking Your Style from Tasmanian singer-songwriter Nuria bustles with gleaming empowerment and Nuria’s profound vocals. A dazzling follow up to Nuria’s recent track Graffiti, Fucking Your Style is ultimately a full-blown anthem to liberation that we all need in spades in 2022.
With moody synths, simmering beats and swooning, layered soundscapes, Fucking Your Style collides the effortless stylings of Nuria with producer Sam Phay and Peter Holz mixing and mastering, with the end result presenting as entirely polished, poised and creamier than a New York cheesecake. Embracing inspiration from some of Nuria’s girl power icons, Lorde, Lily Allen and fellow-Aussie G-Flip, Fucking Your Style is an emphatic, passionate and boundless barrel of indie pop and electronic undertones, while also flying the flag for self-awareness and truly being okay with who you are.

While only releasing into the world today, Fucking Your Style is a track Nuria’s been sitting on for a while, with the latest single following a string of stunning musical collections from the Tassie-based pianist and singer-songwriter. Releasing her debut full length album Alive in 2020, and a follow up in Silver in 2021, Nuria’s free-spirited and finely-honed sonic wiles have seen her gain airplay on ABC and community radio across Australia, while also snagging attention from local and international audiences along the way. Uplifting, exciting and always surging with authentic momentum, Nuria has also had singles from her debut album feature in the Top 10 of the 2020 Australian Songwriters, as well as songs also previously selected in the International Unsigned Only competition semi-finals. Nuria tells Hi Fi Way more about the single.

How has the build-up been leading up to the release of the single Fucking Your Style?
It’s been a little scary to be honest. I oscillate between harnessing the power of the song and feeling a massive sense of overshare with this track. I think a part of me was worried it would shock people, or let out the big secret of how ‘I’m a little bit fucked up’ – damn it! But then the other part of me doesn’t really give a shit and wants to be a bit bolder than I’m often inclined!

Was the process of making your single as challenging as you thought?
It was not challenging at all actually. I’ve had few songs that came out and organically and enjoyably as this one. Though it is interesting I find that the songs that I write that flow, tend to be the ones that end up being my favourite. I guess there is something pure and unfiltered that can happen sometimes when the brain doesn’t get between the emotion and the song writing and I think that’s a powerful thing.

Sonically, how would you describe your music?
Full bodied, textured indie pop. As a listener I love a good melody in a song and a production that sweeps me away – that’s what I strive for in the music I make.

Who would you consider to be the biggest influence on your music and why?
My musical tastes are many and varied and there are so many artists who have influenced me over the years – from Missy Higgins, to Eva Cassidy, from G-flip to Billy Eilish. In this song I took some solid inspiration from the the spunky power of Lilly Allen. Another major influence on my music over the last 5 years or so has been Amy Shark. For me she strikes that awesome balance of being a great storyteller as well as banging out super catchy, relatable songs.

Best piece of advice you have been given?
Try not to worry about pleasing everyone. If just one person likes the track that’s a win! It’s a subjective game and everyone’s tastes in music are different – that doesn’t necessarily mean its personal.

What is the Nuria life story?
Dreamy child with boundless sense of possibility, grew into dreamy adult with boundless sense of possibility. I find life fun. It has its super challenging times, for sure, but I also have this feeling of it being a bit of playground for exploration and I’ve always wanted to give things a go. I truly believe that anyone can do anything if they want to and put the energy into it.

Are you looking to tour more broadly?
No specifics around this, but I’d love to. It’s certainly a possibility!

What’s next for you?
Write, release, repeat. I don’t think I’ll ever stop writing music! And if it’s not a complete disaster I’ll probably keep on releasing it. Hopefully we don’t turn into completely oversaturated phone-controlled robots and people still have time to listen to music in this increasingly weird world!
