Nahaze doesn’t want to slow down with new single “Certe Sere”

Cristiano Di Capua · 1 month ago · Music

There are so many new projects among the new entries in Italian music that one is spoiled for choice. Definitely worth mentioning, however, is that of Nahaze, born Nathalie Hazel Intelligente, a girl born in ’01 with a future that seems to hold some big surprises. With a father from Matera and a mother from England (Gloucester), she released her new single “Certe Sere” (produced by Merk & Kremont) on June 24 for Elektra Records. While listening, it comes across as a well-orchestrated and absolutely catchy pop song, definitely full of summer vibes.
Collater.al decided to ask her a few questions for her new release:

Hi Nathalie! Let’s start right away by talking about your new single. “Certe Sere” is a precious and cool song, a potential soundtrack of this summer. What inspired you in this song?

Hi! The main inspiration in the writing of Certe Sere comes from the image of a path, a journey that two people are on, hence the image of the car, and the directions (left, right, straight) that have calm as their destination.

In your music, even in the songs released before “Certe Sere”, the importance of being bilingual is obvious. How does this side of you influence what you write? Will more songs come in English?

Knowledge of English definitely influences my writing, mainly due to the fact that with English it is easier for me to find the melodic lines for the lyrics. The presence of a larger vocabulary, and therefore the possibility of writing bilingual lyrics, makes it easier for me to express myself. More songs in English will surely come!

Working with the duo Merk & Kremont was definitely a great experience. Tell us a little bit about how it went.

Working with Merk & Kremont was a great experience. They are two very nice guys, friendly but also professional, with whom it was very immediate to work and create a nice mood in the studio.

What artists have musically shaped you? List a few.

Throughout my life several artists had a strong impact on me. In general, pop music has always been with me, especially Rihanna, Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, Beyoncé. The influences though are many: Pink Floyd, Queen, SOAD and more. I used to listen to Eminem a lot as well as other rappers, including Italian ones. At the moment the artists that influence me the most are Doja Cat, Coi Leray, Travis Scott etc.

“Certe Sere”, despite sounding like a pop and dreamy song, is surrounded by a veil of emotionality that refers to classic night time nostalgia. Instead, what is the ideal type of night for you?

My ideal kind of evening is definitely by the sea with the right company, maybe a concert, some beers and lots of music.

There are two different Hong Kongs in Cody Ellingham’s shots

There are two different Hong Kongs in Cody Ellingham’s shots

Tommaso Berra · 2 weeks ago · Photography

New Zealand photographer Cody Ellingham believes that there are two versions of Hong Kong: a real one that exists with its monumental skyscrapers and one that we remember fondly in our memories. 
The series “Fantasy city by the harbour” – from which a book of photographs was also born – stems precisely from an attempt to try to understand how we can return to the “other” Hong Kong, of which only the dreams and atmospheres dense with neon and people frantically roaming the streets of the Asian city remain.

The shots mainly show the architecture of the city, studied through the calm moments of the metropolis. In fact, people never appear, a challenge considering that Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated areas on the planet with its 7 million inhabitants.
In the streets, therefore, only silence remains, interrupted by the buzzing of neon lights, which Cody Ellingham uses to accentuate the aesthetic effect of the views, as if they were sets for a futuristic film set in a hyper-technological city of androids and flying machines.
The photographer had the opportunity to study the city during his frequent travels, choosing moments of calm to make even more vivid and real the Hong Kong that persisted in his memories but was difficult to find in everyday life. The fog favours the general suspended atmosphere of the scenes, the large billboards look like TVs left on after falling asleep on the sofa while the lights of the skyscrapers belie the whole thing: the city is not sleeping.

Daniele Frediani’s journey among the nomadic peoples of Kyrgyzstan

Daniele Frediani’s journey among the nomadic peoples of Kyrgyzstan

Tommaso Berra · 3 weeks ago · Photography

Is it possible for urban man to abandon all stimulus and service of the city to reconnect with an idea of brutal pragmatism dictated by nature? Photographer Daniele Frediani has embarked on a journey to Asia, to some of the territories in which the truth of time and space overpower appearances, consumption and weaknesses of our society.

Frediani in Kyrgyzstan perhaps saw what would happen if we were forced to go back to living as we did centuries and centuries ago, dependent on the cycle of nature and the animal cycle. The shots in his photo series show Kyrgyz nomads as they live by eliminating everything superfluous, decreasing the margin of error, of doubt about what is right or wrong. What the protagonists of these photos have at their disposal is only what their animals have to offer, while all around them are only large grasslands still cold in the Song Kol Lake area.
Living with them is an experience that takes you to another world, a world without time and space: before the Internet and social media, before technology and electricity,” said Daniele Frediani.
