Stream: “At Last” – Núria Graham




A smoldering, dreamy affair, Núria Graham first single of 2021 is an utterly intoxicating immersion of sound and emotion. A cinematic, soaring breath of fresh, fiery indie pop air, “At Last” is a welcome rush of intense feeling that reminds us why we first fell for Núria Graham all over again.

At Last - Núria Graham
At Last – Núria Graham
I’ve been watching your brothers and sisters
Trying to understand
Wandering in various subways
Sweating on a train
I am always waiting
I am always in a rush
You think I am always waiting
I am always in a rush
But here it comes, at last

Atwood Magazine is proud to be premiering “At Last,” Núria Graham’s stunning first single of 2021 (out March 12, 2021 via Primavera Sound Labels / Universal Music) and her direct follow-up to February 2020’s expansive third album, Marjorie. “I think Marjorie is the most personal album that I’ve written,” Graham told Atwood Magazine at the time. “Without planning it, it has ended up being a very familiar and introspective album in which I see myself in other characters’ lives and behaviours.”

Covering Marjorie‘s final single “Toilet Chronicles” last year, Atwood Magazine praised Graham for capturing love’s “messy beauty,” going on to describe the track as “a sweet song about vulnerability, doubt, and learning to let others in.” We went on to label Núria Graham as one of the magazine’s artists to watch – a label which continues to apply to the talented half Irish, half Catalan singer/songwriter today.

A jazzy, piano driven pop song, “At Last” finds Graham diving into intimate depths as she yearns for relief from her everyday life. Characteristically existential, Graham teases out observations of daily life against sweetly driving piano chords. Her performance is delicate, yet strong: Confident not only in its message, but in every step it takes forward as the artist reckons with relatable doldrums. She rises high in a sweeping chorus that fill the room with a wall of dazzling sounds, engulfing the ears and drowning our senses with the deeply harmonized words, “At last…

It hurts that I can trust you
But I can’t trust myself sometimes
Well, I’m wandering in various subways
And I’m sweating on a train
I am always waiting
I am always in a rush
You think I am always waiting
Truth is am on the run
But here it comes, at last…

“This song talks about a particular time of my life trying to get some space, observing, while getting the train everyday to the studio and breathing, dreaming of a way to escape, somehow, from something I wasn’t even aware of that time. (“I am always waiting, I am always in a rush, you think I am always waiting, truth is, I am on the run”),” Graham tells Atwood Magazine. “So I think that after two years I can say that it talks about kindness with yourself and being brave. It has been a long process, and it makes sense to release this song now because, at last, I am in the place I was willing to be at the moment when I wrote it. The video by Escafior Films directed by Artur Tort makes all of these images in my head become real.”

Graham’s colorful music video brings the song’s dreamy longings to life as the artist slips in and out of reality on a long car ride. “I had a very clear idea of what the video had to be,” she says. “At first, I was very inspired by watching videos of choreographers such as Marta Graham’s “frontier” and i listened to the song on top of the choreographies. I knew I wanted something very cinematographic, theatrical too. I wanted to act and show this other Núria inside of me; that is the one who’s talking in the song. I was also very inspired by Kate Bush and her scenic presence. The main idea we had with the director Artur was to show the Nuria, on the car, with the estethic from “Connemara,” dreaming of escaping and becoming the new empowered and even creepy Núria.”

Núria Graham’s Vibrant “Smile on the Grass” Indulges in the Existential & Intimate

:: PREMIERE ::

This new Núria is a spellbinding presence – a different kind of force that is markedly different from the singer/songwriter’s past faces, yet so perfectly fits the mood and the moment. For a song all about escaping, “At Last” has us hooked – and there’s no place we would rather be.
