In this new interview, we speak with Nada Samir about her inspirations and newest single “Roadtrip!”
Welcome! Please tell us more about yourself and your music.
Hello my name is Nada I am 24 years old. I was born on 18. 06.1996 in Frankfurt am Main. I am half Kuwaiti half Iraqi and live in Frankfurt am main Hessen Germany. I’m a Singer and Songwriter and I started making music this year. I don’t follow a specific genre of music when I writing but choose to define myself as a pop/indie pop/alternative/hip-hop artist/R&B Soul/Trap/EDM/Lo fi. With my music I want to reach all people and give them the feeling that they are not alone and that I am there for them.
My goal is also for listeners to be able to sing along with my music and cry if they want. It’s more like an emotional support for anyone who suffers from depression it helps him get out of there. I myself know what it’s like to have depression and feel alone.
“Roadtrip” is the kind of song you’d play on a long, soothing drive home. What was the writing and recording process like?
Sometimes when I had my downs and I felt completely stressed, I had the feeling that I just wanted to get out. most I asked my sister or she said wanna go out and chill?
I loved this moment when we sometimes drove out so in the evening have filmed loud music and have sung along the windows rolls down and the worries were suddenly gone. I thank my sister very much because she inspired me to write this song even more it is also a gift and also a memorial for the moments you should also capture the most beautiful moments.
“I feel the wind/ On my skin/ Feel the wind on my/ Feel the wind on my Skin/ Skin/ Skin” – It’s a part of my song I just quoted that was the part where we were driving the car, the windows were downstairs and I stretched out my hand and smiled. It was awesome 🙂
What does this single mean to you? Will there be any visuals?
It means a lot to me because I want to give my fellow people something they want to have the same as I feel and have fun and because it is a reminder of the beautiful moments with my sister and me was also the important not to write and drive just relax and enjoy the moment. That life is short for so much stress.
Are there any specific elements you like to throw into your songs?
I like to use more dynamic and more emotional vocals. I love to tell my song story and show feelings. It’s okay to feel good even if sometimes it’s not so great or running.
Who are your biggest musical influences?
I have many but I love Charlie Puth, Blackbear, Melanie Martinez and Tove Lo and The Weekend.
What’s something most people don’t know about you?
In the past most of them didn’t know that I could sing or that I would ever go into the music direction.
How has this time past few months of quarantine affected you creatively?
You won’t believe me but I wrote more songs during the quarantine period so there are also 3 more.
“I tried to reach you/ But all what you do/ It’s just to keep me/ In distance/ Like this virus” – 3am quote. Haha like this virus, I mean corona 🙂
How would you describe your sound to someone who just listened to your music for the first time?
When it’s placed on the song “Roadtrip” then he will feel the chill vibe and in any case enjoy it and also listen to the moral behind it. But if you mean in general then it will be so that the pain will feel the emotion and maybe it will help him/she cope with it. It’s okay to have depression and talk about it or if you’re not feeling well to cry about it or let go and make you feel better or you’re finally getting ahead.
What has been the best moment in your musical career that you’re most proud of?
We’ve written a lot of songs that have helped made me happy. It made me really happy that I was able to help that is also more my motivation to produce more or to spread more songs.
Thank you for speaking with us! For our final question, what do you hope to achieve in the next 5 years?
Thank you for the great interview! I hope I can create a very large range more awareness and that I can help a lot of people with my music. Thank you to all my dreamers who support me. Remember I’m also a dreamer and I live my dreams, live your dreams too.
