New Lulu: “Nurui”

Sometimes, you’ll come across people arguing about music in terms of emotional extremes — something can be “too optimistic” or “too bleak,” or not nearly one of those attributes either. Lulu’s latest song hits on something far more intriguing and real — the feeling of just going through the motions, and feeling tired about it but not necessarily sad. “Nurui” is a song about daily life, peppered with details about baseball games on the TV and ice cubes melting in glasses, but it also captures the weird feeling of being an adult, and not being thrilled or depressed about it. Just…feeling it. Listen above.
