Nuoli is a female singer/songwriter, musician and producer whose message to the world is to stand up against inequality, prejudice and injustice. Through her music, the main vocalist Nuoli Hultman, expresses her anger and frustration towards the ongoing political and social misconceptions such as racism, sexism, homophobia and gender generalisation.
Originally from Stockholm Sweden, Nuoli has been closely involved and working with Lykke Li’s artist collective/label called Ingrid.
My Curse Is My Mind is Nuoli’s debut single which represents the inner-battle between the imprisoned person that the society is trying to create and the free person that one really is. The song speaks loudly of freedom and letting go of all the bias and preconception. Influenced by musicians such as Kate Bush, Lykke Li, Dream Koala and FKA Twigs, Nuoli has developed her trademark sound consisting of quirky vocals, dreamy drum-beats, airy guitars and haunting synths.
The song starts with a steady drumbeat that then breaks down into a near acappella verse. The drums pick up again soon after and take the listener on an aurally in-depth sonic journey. The lyrics leave a great deal open to interpretation but the constant references to My Curse Is My Mind lend a sense of dread as well as relief that whatever scary ghost keeps threatening the listener, it is their choice to give in or fight back.
My Curse Is My Mind is a recording that reminds us of how emotionally influential and enchanting a song can be, and it will be available for sale and download on Sunday 20 April.
