Nura Live with imbi the girl

Born: 16th of April ‘97

Can't leave the house without: my headphones and my scarf, you never know when the weather’s gonna turn!

Since gracing our ears with their first single ‘acidic’ in 2017, neo-soul artist and poet imbi the girl has quickly climbed the ranks. After winning Triple J Unearthed in 2018, performing at festivals around the country and their first headline tour in 2019, more and more people across the globe are waking up to the artist’s signature combination of ‘melodic rap’ and unapologetic self-love. Recently, we were lucky to get imbi in the studio for a special live performance of their single ‘safe.t.v.’ and experience it for ourselves. 

The gentle bass line, delicately layered harmonies and, of course, imbi’s poetic lyricism – it’s musical storytelling at its purest, the kind of music that draws you in with its raw delivery and transports you to another realm. Honestly, what a time to be alive.

Describe your sound to our audience.

Ever changing hahaha. I’d describe what’s out at the moment as neo-soul//melodic rap//poetry in motion, but who knows what’s to come!

What do you prefer: performing live or recording?

Thought long and hard about this but I really can’t choose, I love them both equally for different reasons. 

Tell us about that first moment you tried the Nuraphone.

I was blown away ! The clarity of sound really shook me ~ I listened to some tracks I’ve heard 100 times and they sounded brand new or at least remastered. The ‘live’ setting was also an immediate favourite, I love bass and being able to literally FEEL the bass in the headphones is ~ a m a z i n g~

What are you working on at the moment?

At the moment I’m working on a couple different music projects which I am VERY excited about, but I’m also working on my political engagement, activism and mental health :)

What's your favourite track to dance to?

IN IN IN by Zebra Katz goes offffff !!!
