Jemma Tweedie, otherwise known as LILURA, has released her new track Nylon. Hailing from the Scottish Highlands, the young singer-songwriter has evolved in recent years from a background in acoustic performances into owning stages from the UK to LA with her own brand of electro-pop. LILURA spoke with The Fountain about Nylon in more depth, as well as her plans for 2020.
TF: You have a new single out, Nylon, what can we expect from this release?
I do and there are still some juicy bits to come from it. I want to release the stripped back version, which is completely different and really raw. I feel like this is a step in the right direction for me. I’m feeling more confident in myself and as an artist and I want that to be reflected from here on.
TF: And how would you sum up the track in one sentence?
A sultry, sexy pop song that feels empowering.
TF: And are you working towards the release of an album or EP?
Yes, definitely. Watch this space in 2020. I have something up my sleeve and all tracks for an EP are ready to go.
TF: What else is on the cards for LILURA, can we expect a gig in Scotland soon?
Lot’s more music releases in 2020. A lot more collaborations and of course some Scottish gigs and festivals. I’ve been working on my live set a lot this past year so we have the ability to play full electronic bangers which can also be stripped right back for a more intimate setting.
TF: What has been your favourite gig to date?
My favourite LILURA gig to date has to be my debut in my hometown of Nairn. It’s such a small town we don’t have any real music venues. So I hired a nightclub and built a stage, sound system and lighting rigs for the night. We completely sold it out with a capacity of 350, which was insane. It was a real buzz to have all of my friends/family and real music fans coming out to support my new venture at the time. I’m planning on doing something like this again towards Autumn next year, it will be interesting to see how much we have grown.
