NULA’s ‘Setback’ is about “longing for physical touch during lockdown”

"Being under strict rules only made me want to unlock the doors of my imagination and break free into a world beyond FaceTime, text messages and phone calls"

New Cross duo NULA are a future-facing R&B act, fronted by vocalist and songwriter Nadiah Adu-Gyamfi and her production/writing partner Luke Osborne.

We’ve been working with the pair via our DMY Artists, and they featured on our ‘30 DMY Artists To Watch in 2021′ list.

Their latest offering, ‘Setback’, arrives after 2019’s future R&B jam ’60 Minutes’, which piqued our interest with its almost future garage beat.

“‘Setback’ is essentially about longing for physical touch during lockdown,” explains Adu-Gyamfi. “Being under strict rules only made me want to unlock the doors of my imagination and break free into a world beyond FaceTime, text messages and phone calls. Not being able to let loose in the club, see my friends, perform live and see my partner especially was not the vibe. I really wanted to whine up my waist and feel cute and I know a lot of the people felt the same.”
