We’re falling in love for the first time again with Nuria’s latest single “Closer”! If you’re looking for a song that’ll give you that euphoric feeling, this is the one!
This song quite literally has its own heartbeat that’s paired with Nuria’s dreamy voice and lyrics that couldn’t be more accurate, it’s an indie-pop dream come true. She manages to capture exactly what it feels like to be young and in love; overcome with feelings you’ve never had before and unsure of what to do with them. Nuria has taken those feelings and put them all into “Closer”, putting us in a trance.
The piano featured in the song is played by Nuria herself, adding an extra element of magic and showing us that her talents go beyond singing and songwriting.
Nuria is actually a stage name for the Tasmanian artist Anna Maynard. Pronounced Noo-ree-ah, this name from her childhood meaning “Fire of the Lord” speaks of passion, boldness and captures a spirit unhindered by the constraints of growing up. “Closer” has definitely lived up to that meaning!
