the AU Interview At BIGSOUND 2015: Ngaiire (Sydney) Talks Lastest Single and Album Production

We caught up with Sydney’s Ngaiire during BIGSOUND 2015 to talk about her performance, new single ‘Once’, and working in the studio with electronic guru Paul Mac and musician and songwriter Megan Washington. Despite giving a stellar performance at the festival, Ngaiire admits that “on stage, it was a nightmare. But for some reason it translated really well.” From BIGSOUND, Ngaiire will go on to perform at a range of festivals around the world, including the CMJ Music Marathon and Culture Collide in LA. She will also be performing at AWME in Melbourne and the Glebe St Fest in her hometown of Sydney.

Music Video of the Day: NGAIIRE "Once" (2015)

The momentum generating around Sydney's NGAIIRE has been building strongly as we edge ever closer to the highly anticipated release of Blastoma. Her recent single launch show in Sydney for the hypnotic "Once" sold out and Melbourne before it was raved about. Ngaiire's talent is one that has remained criminally underrated in Australia for years now - a true gem of a vocalist and performer who has been working hard at refining her craft and working with some legends, this lady is finally going to be getting the wider recognition she deserves with this upcoming album, I can feel it.

Single of the Day: Ngaiire "Once" (2015)

Ngaiire's forthcoming album Blastoma is one I've been waiting seemingly forever for. Since hearing 2013's Lamentations, I fell back in love with Ngaiire's soulful vocals, her obvious diverse musical palette that she works from and the creative relationships she's developed since. The talented songwriter has continued to work hard on her craft and in new single "Once", Ngaiire has proven once again that her music is one that definitely needs to be on your radar.
