As a child growing up in East London, NUUXS and her siblings were brought up by their mother. Seeing her work in a care home while struggling to keep up with all the immense tasks that a mum faces made an impact on the young NUUXS, and lyrically, that’s what ‘Laundry’ is inspired by. It’s a powerful listen, and one that deserves to be heard.
“Having observed my mum, the once vivacious ballerina, turn into a very tired woman with severe back pains from all the heavy duty washing she was doing, I could see why some might turn to alcohol as a form of solace. So I guess this song is me being pissed off with how society can be, and how the government can be. This is the time more than ever that we should see community being at the forefront of leadership.”
Taken from the forthcoming debut album ‘Heirloom’ which out soon.
