Have you heard about nurié? The 4 men band formed in the second half 0f 2019.
It hasn’t been long since they formed, but they already accumlated 10 releases!
We would like to introduce them to you through our interview

First we would like to know what the name nurié means and why you chose this name. 

Band: We chose it with the meaning of a white background that gets colored with various things through our music. But there’s another reason: we named our band after a child’s play (nurie= colouring book) to play around with music and never forget our childlike minds. 

Why did you become musicians? 

Osumi: I decided to become a musician, when I listened to a band at a friends house during middle school. 

Hirose: Because of a senior during middle school who played guitar. 

Takanashi: Because I learned that being in a band is fun. 

Sometani: I was fascinated by a drummer who was hitting the drums in the back on a tv show. 

How did the 4 of you meet? 

Band: We met 2 or 3 years ago. It was quite a miracle that the 4 of us met. 

Which song would you recommend to someone to get an impression of your music? 

Band: It’s difficult to choose, because we love all songs, but TOUMEI NI MAZARU. TOUMEI NI MAZARU.(透明に混ざる。) is the song which can give the best impression of nurié. 

How do you normally proceed during song production? 

Osumi: I create songs based on things that influence me or deeply move my heart. 

Hirose: For me it’s the same. After a lot of those stimuli pile up, I turn them into songs. 

Are there any Japanese or overseas bands that influence you? 

Osumi: There was a time when I liked listening to overseas music. However, the beauty and ugliness of the Japanese language and the expressions of such things are very interesting in Japanese, so I’ve been listening to Japanese music a lot these days. 

Hirose: I listened to all the hard rock music of the 70s and 80s that all guitar kids were addicted to. 

Takanashi: I don’t know if I got influenced as a bassist, but because I liked new metal and listened a lot to it during my adolescence, I have the feeling I got influenced as a person. Recently, I often listen to an artist called SiA. 

Sometani: To be honest, I don’t listen to much overseas music. When I was a student and I started with music, I listened only to V-kei music. Therefore, my play strongly reflects that influence. 

Please describe your music in 3 words. 

Band: Language, love and art. 

At the moment you are also offering live streams that are available for overseas fans. Do you plan to still offer them after Corona calmed down?

Band: We will continue to offer live streams. Because it’s a new way to deliver music that we gained through the Corona crisis. So even after Corona calmed down, we would like to continue offering them for those who cannot come directly to the venue. 

You shot many MVs on the street. Is there a reason for that? 

Band: We think the streets are the best satire. The streets express changing times, people and the townscapes. That’s why we like to shoot there. 

nurié only formed in 2019, but do you have a concrete goal? 

Band: It’s a big goal, but we want to perform at Nippon Budokan. However, because there are many obstacles to overcome until then, we steadily want to achieve goals one-by-one. We also want to make theme songs for anime or movies one day.

Please tell us 3 things that are important to you.

Band: The same as for question no.7. (Language, love and art)

And before we close this interview, we would like to ask you to leave a message to your overseas fans.

Band: Everyone overseas thank you very much for always supporting us. We will make more music available overseas so our music can reach you. The world is in a difficult place right now, but please live with hope for the future. We look forward to your continued support.
