"The love of music always paves the way for love songs" - Jacques Prévert
For this track Nude partnered with JJ, a singer/songwriter from Singapore, which you might have already come across. Growing up, classic theatre, indie pop and folk music were all major influences on her musical sagacity, for their relatable worth that expressed emotions in ways that words alone could never achieve.
“I have always been fascinated by how the pull of music unites diverse individuals, each song collating similar emotions that connect us as human beings. I began writing my own lyrics properly when I was about 13 in attempt to be at peace with teenage confusion regarding life, love and loss.”
Her compositions are inspired by the combination of theatrical expressiveness alongside the raw delivery of indie pop and folk pieces.
You will not be surprised by her current musical inspirations, which include the “lush and ethereal” sounds of Flume, French Kiwi Juice, BROODS and Made in Heights.
She described her previous releases Mad Decent, MrSuicideSheep, and Future as “collections of different energies that remind me to stay in touch with my emotions and hopefully influence others to do the same”.
We love folk artists such as JJ who do not compromise and teem the essence of their feelings in their work, keeping it’s listeners in check, challenging them to remember old feelings or to simply to be aware of their surroundings.
“The track ‘Hide & Seek’ is no exception – inspired by the thrill of falling for someone, every moment trying to look for hints as to where his/her heart is, it really becomes a game and some are naturally better than others.
The future is uncertain but one thing’s for sure – I’ll never stop writing and singing about things that matter to me. The goal is to have my debut EP out once I’ve found the right place and time for it but most importantly, when I’m satisfied with my work. For now, it’s back to the grind and I look forward to getting inspired by people I haven’t met and places I haven’t been.”
We are really proud that JJ is part of this release
and are looking foward to more productions from her !
