premiere: nula takes us on a journey through the devastating loss of love in emotional new single “us”

March 23, 2017

Goldsmiths graduates and New Cross natives Luke Osborne and Diane N Adu-Gyamfi form Nula, an alternative R’n’B/indie electronica duo with a bittersweet edge. Their unique electronic sound is inspired by contemporary Trip-Hop and the wispier aspects of 90’s gospel.

Nula’s debut single “Us” features the duo writing, producing and playing every instrument on the penetrating track about fractured love. “‘Us’ was written on a bus journey from waterloo to new cross. Although We both have separate feelings on our past relationships, we both wrote the song essentially about our exes (ex-relationships, ex-friendships..etc),” they explain, “and we imagined it taking place outside the 343 bus station in new cross gate which is opposite a broken phone booth. The phone represents the breakdown of communication and the devastating reality of unrequited love.”

Nula will also be headlining their first show at the iconic and innovative “Body Party” in London, taking place at Brixton Jamm on March 30th, where they will be supported by DJs CKTRL and Crackstevens:
