nudista return with new song ‘Different Eyes’.
The duo – Pilar Matji Cabello and Robbie Carman – offer alt-folk tinged with indie rock directness, citing the likes of Elliott Smith as a key influence. Signed to key tastemaker label Sad Club Records, the group will play London’s Shacklewell Arms on November 20th.
Alongside the show announce nudista have unfurled something new, with ‘Different Eyes’ adding a crunching guitar heft to their introspective songwriting. Out now, it’s a dose of breathless honesty, the lyrics billed as a conversation with oneself.
Offering truth in melodic form, ‘Different Eyes’ attempts to pin down “a moment of clarity” with Robbie Carman comments…
“The song is describing a distrust of my own narrative. A gradual realisation that I have outgrown some previously held opinions about myself and world views, and the struggle of letting those go. ’Different Eyes’ was written very quickly in a moment of clarity and is an attempt to hold on to a new perspective.”
“I am sitting myself down and having a one-to-one chat. I’m not hiding behind metaphors or complex language, reminding myself of a simple fact that is easily forgotten (“it’s because of others that you’ve grown”) whilst also trying to invoke change (“always chasing something…tryna be someone else”) and move away from some habitual isolating thought patterns (“You never wanna be here”).”
Tune in now.
