Feature: The Anatomy of 'Danger' with Nuela Charles

Tuesday, October 2, 2018

Kenya-born, Canada-based Nuela Charles impresses with her emotionally charged new single 'Danger'. With the release of her forthcoming EP Distant Danger coming up on 19th October, she gives the story behind her glorious single.

I wrote 'Danger'… during a session that wasn’t originally intended for me, but the next day I couldn’t get it out of my head and I knew I had to make it mine. I guess the fact that I wasn’t originally composing it for myself allowed me to lose my inhibitions and step out of what I might usually feel comfortable writing in one of my own tracks — it’s quite cheeky.

The story behind 'Danger' is… the idea of longing for a little bit more spark and excitement, but not in a real dangerous way — only a romantic, sweep-you-off-your-feet kind of way.

My favourite lyrics in 'Danger' is…"I’ve been looking for some danger, gimme danger, Spin the bottle with a stranger, Don’t hesitate we’ll finesse it till we get it right.”

It was made… to give people a little excitement and remind themselves to get out and find that fire in their lives.

My main inspiration was… fast cars and dark rooms.

It sounds best when…sky diving?!
