HARINA is a German-born, London-based singer-songwriter who left behind her future as a dentist in 2016 to move to London, jumping into the deep end in pursuit of her dream to become a contemporary pop icon, and she’s well on her way. She navigated to a bachelors degree at BIMM London and her natural talent was soon spotted, signing to Universal sub-label Polydor with her duo project ‘Zazoo’, shortly after. The duo’s debut single “Spinnin’ Round” was released in November 2018 and generated over 300k plays across all platforms, with heavy support on various radio networks.
At the same time, HARINA has been working on her solo project and released her first teaser song late last year, “Last Christmas”, an energetic hip-pop Christmas song, that incidentally raises awareness of climate change risks. Her official first single is coming out on January 15th, a ferociously slick trap-pop anthem in Ariana style, addressing another universal issue that’s clear from get-go. Effortless catchy, filled with indelible melodies and crisp production, HARINA has a hit on her hands and is soon to become a household name in the pop world.
Speaking to the motivation behind Nothing, HARINA shares:
“In the past, other people’s expectations have led me into confusion and made me lose my Intuition when making important decisions. The wrong guidance has pulled me away from my initial plans and put me into a state of self-doubt. We live in a society and I work in an industry where Profit is everything. the Ultimate advantage is a hefty pocket. Hence people in powerful positions can make empty promises and sell faulty dreams in their boundless thirst for money by packaging them as the one-way ticket to success.The whole message behind “Nothing“ is the realisation that these promises are not always made in goodwill and might not lead you to a place you want to be in. I reached a point where I’m letting other people’s opinions go and seeking my own way to find fulfilment. Nothing, absolutely nothing will stop me from doing what I want.”– HARINA
