Indie-pop duo nudista come to terms with life and its mundanities on new cut ‘confess’ out via Sad Club Records. Sewn together by the sweeping guitar lines of Robbie Carman, and the tender vocals of Spanish-born singer Pilar Matji Cabello, ‘confess’ draws on the overwhelming sensations of life, encased within a reassuring and familiar shell. Drawing from the sonic soundscapes of Alvvays, Tennis and Mazzy Star, nudista tell their own reality through innocent and soothing anecdotes, making you feel at home with their haze of hypnotic dreaminess.

Lead singer Pilar wrote ‘confess’ right before the pandemic escalated, and was feeling overwhelmed with the fast-paced nature of life, feeling creatively disconnected and submerged. Pilar notes “I was coming to terms with life in all its mundanity: working, paying rent, surviving the city, etc and the slow acknowledgement that predictions for life in mid-20s were inaccurate. ‘confess’ is about coming to terms with that process and, eventually, being okay with it - sitting in that feeling, it's sad but it's all good.”

Pilar elaborates on how one has to come to accept the rhythm of life in order to keep their head above water. “It’s kind of about me acknowledging that I don’t know how to ‘play’ the game of life and not knowing all of it’s intrinsicate rules that you need to learn, and finding these a bit overwhelming.”

“No one really knows what they are doing. We are all kind of improvising and accepting all of these strange rules that we all need to follow just because we are alive. And that’s it’s okay to feel lost and confused, eventually you start taking things less seriously and it’s been proven if we stop a bit things can become less overwhelming.”


I’m growing old, I’m feeling tired
Another day goes with nothing to do
We go around as if we were alive
But we’ll only live when we die

I must confess that I don’t know the rules
I must confess I forgot what’s true

I try to take it day by day
But this solitude is making me sink
I always thought I’d be made up but
I don’t wanna make it anymore

I must confess that I don’t know the rules
I must confess I forgot what’s true

We are running over time
Hiding in the dark
I always try too hard
To save me, save me, save me, save me

I must confess that I don’t know the rules
I must confess I forgot what’s true
