FRESH: ‘Patient’ – NUUXS

NUUXS shares the video for her latest single “Patient’ featuring Zac Pajak.

French-born UK singer-songwriter NUUXS reveals her new single “Patient”, featuring Zac Pajak and taken from her debut mixtape “Red Tape Vol.1”, out now via Goldun Egg.

“Patient” is an incredibly honest examination of relationships and the insecurities that often accompany the highs. NUUXS and Zac’s delicate harmonies combine with beautiful, yet melancholic, strings and piano to mirror the fragility of an early relationship. The refrain of “don’t hate me, don’t hate me. Be patient” reflects the hopeful fear love can create, as the couple battle to conquer their personal insecurities.

NUUXS and Zac Pajak have already combined on penning the mixtape’s 2nd single “Sweet Sunshine”, as well as co-writing Major Lazer’s hit single “Tied Up” featuring Mr Eazi & Raye. This chemistry is immediately apparent in “Patient”, as the two connect both lyrically and musically.

NUUXS’ story is an intriguing one. She grew up in a cult where she was banned from ‘worldly’ activities like listening to music, watching television and reading certain books. Aged 15 she found the strength to escape and began her musical journey, forming an indie-rock band and going on to write hooks for grime artists she went to school with. With a raft of musical influences shaped by her ever-shifting surroundings, she caught the eye of Jake Gosling (Ed Sheeran, The Libertines and James Bay) at a writing camp and he eventually signed her to his Goldun Egg imprint.

With her songs having already racked up hundreds of thousands of streams, and support from Spotify, KCRW, Amazing Radio and BBC Introducing, NUUXS continues to cement herself as one of the most exciting and enigmatic emerging talents in Britain.

“Red Tape Vol.1” tracklist:
1. Sweet Sunshine
2. Champagne
3. No Good For Me
4. Drunken Eyes

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
