“Her talent is on par with Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers, Lucy Dacus, and other young, gifted singer-songwriters.” – THE REVUE
Local indie rock champion Nat Vazer is about to complete a trifecta of single releases from her forthcoming debut album Is This Offensive And Loud?, with nostalgic new number ‘For A Moment’. Out today, ‘For A Moment’ rounds out an impeccable spread of offerings already available from Vazer’s debut LP including 2019’s ‘Like Demi’ and recent favourite ‘Grateful’. After much teasing, Vazer and Hotel Motel Records are thrilled to finally be able to announce Friday 29 May as the official Is This Offensive And Loud? album release day.
Full to the brim with saturated reverb and Tropicana twang, Vazer has created a lighthearted but brooding slice of indie rock on ‘For A Moment’, musing over past infatuations and future possibilities in equal measure. Grounded in retrospect yet lofty with nostalgia, ‘For A Moment’ presents an intimate glimpse into Vazer’s mind in an ongoing journalistic approach that has come to identify the impeccable songwriter’s work.
“‘For A Moment’ is a love song about an ex-work colleague. There is a strange time-warping feeling you get sometimes when you fall for someone hard, where time can appear to stand still while everything around you seems like a blur. ‘For A Moment’ indulges in that fantasy. It’s about chasing something forbidden, a longing for someone you can’t really be with and the overwhelming fear of the possibility.” – Nat Vazer
Since the release of her 2018 EP We Used To Have Real Conversations, Vazer has toured with Lime Cordiale and supported the likes of Last Dinosaurs, #1 Dads, Carla Geneve and The Magic Numbers (UK). Her fast-growing reputation as a powerful songwriter and captivating performer has also landed her on the festival line ups of St Kilda Festival, Kyneton Music Festival, Changes, Not Fest and more. Finally scheduled for release through beloved Melbourne label Hotel Motel Records this May, Is This Offensive And Loud? is sure to propel Nat Vazer from a beguiling one-to-watch, to an undeniable leading force of Melbourne’s bustling indie rock scene. Get ready.
