The half-Irish half-Catalan composer Núria Graham debuts the video for her new single Connemara right here on RockShot Mag.
Right from the opening shots of this 8mm inspired film the atmosphere hits you with Núria’s really soft and beautiful voice casting a magical spell telling the heartbreaking story of a young man who takes his own life in Connemara, a region in the west of Ireland where the musician spent her childhood vacations with her family.
With lyrics like “I love you life, I love you life, but I am out of here”, the track is “an ode to a life that spoke of death” and is accompanied by visuals shot in the wild Atlantic region, with its many coves and small fishing villages and directed by Artur Tort.
Graham says: “At one time or another, we have all felt like we’re on the outside looking in, that we don’t belong in the reality in which we find ourselves.”
Her aunt still lives there with her boyfriend, a native fisherman who goes out to sea every morning in his wooden boat. This is the scenario that served Graham as inspiration for what is the first preview of Marjorie, her new album that will be released in February 2020.
The LP follows her albums First Tracks (2015) and Does It Ring a Bell? (2017) as well as extensive touring that has taken her from Portugal and France to Berlin and London.
Núria Graham next plays London on 26th November 2019 (Servant Jazz Quarters) and 30th April 2020 (The Lexington).
Nuria is lucky enough to have the support of three record labels to help with the release including the main label Primavera Labels
