Rising indie pop two-piece nudista have shared their slow-burning new single ‘confess’.
The single was penned just as the pandemic made itself known, almost exactly 12 months ago – a strange time, one filled with doubt and anxiety.
This sense of disconnection runs through ‘confess’, with singer Pilar attempting to channel the day-to-day struggles that emerged.
Looking more generally, they’re discussing the grind of city life, and the difficulties that come with attempting to develop a creative project under these constraints.
She notes: “I was coming to terms with life in all its mundanity: working, paying rent, surviving the city, etc and the slow acknowledgement that predictions for life in mid-20s were inaccurate. ‘confess’ is about coming to terms with that process and, eventually, being okay with it – sitting in that feeling, it’s sad but it’s all good.”
“It’s kind of about me acknowledging that I don’t know how to ‘play’ the game of life and not knowing all of it’s intrinsicate rules that you need to learn, and finding these a bit overwhelming.”
She finishes: “No one really knows what they are doing. We are all kind of improvising and accepting all of these strange rules that we all need to follow just because we are alive. And that’s it’s okay to feel lost and confused, eventually you start taking things less seriously and it’s been proven if we stop a bit things can become less overwhelming.”
