Tyra Jutai: ““Nudes” was inspired by naïveté in relationships, breakups on social media, and technology and intimacy intersecting. I wanted to contrast ditsy sarcasm with hints of heartbreak and frustration in the song’s lyrics.
The lyrics and melody were completely improvised. I self-produced the original version before taking it to the studio to add extra instrumentation and samples, taking it to the next level.
“Nudes” is a reflection on dating norms and how we build trust in our relationships. My coping mechanism is to gloss over the fear and fun of sending nudes with sarcasm.”
