WATCH | URIAS Debuts Her Newest Music Video & Speaks About Her Own Gender-Fluidity

On Our Radar

Emerging artist URIAS caught our attention and quickly landed on our radar with her debut release. 

The first single from this artist is titled "Head High" and received the visual treatment, and we just simply can't get enough. 

You'll feel some R&B of the 90’s, chill, laidback with a serious message that comes accross strong when you listen to it a few times. 

We decided to send over a lil' Q&A so we can get to know URIAS a bit better, so click play to watch the video for "Head High" above, and scroll through our convo below: 

How would you describe URIAS under 140 characters?

I'm honest and sometimes people can't handle it, but it's okay. I keep to myself most of the time and I just observe."

Describe to us what a typical day in your life looks like?

Typically I spend my days recording with my producer Hajile and have just been working on my upcoming EP. Everyday there's something new so I take it day by day and always give everything 100%.

If you had to pick a gif that represents your music, what would it be? 

Talk to us about your latest music video, who came up with the concept?

I'm really proud of releasing it because my team and I have been working hard on everything. I love being able to put out something that gives the world more of a visual of who I am as an artist. My manager and I came up with the concept and then just went with the vibe. I feel like I stay true with myself, so everything is just an easy flow. 

What type of mindset do you have to be in when you get in the groove of recording?

I try to release whatever emotion I have been feeling the most. If it's heavy, then I make a heavy song. If I'm in love, it's all about love. If it's pain, I sing about pain. I try just to be real and vulnerable about everything. 

What is your favorite part of being a musical artist?

My favorite part is growing and making manifestations a reality. I love looking back and being like "damn, I'm better than I used to be." I also love connecting with fans and making people feel like they belong. Everyone should have somebody, and I want to be that person where anyone listening can relate to and fall back on. 

What is something people would be surprised to learn about you?

I used to freestyle with my dad when I was 3. He loves hip hop, trip hop and house. So, when I was 3, he used to have my freestyle on a boom-box in the living room. I thought he was a legit rapper. 

Any other local artists or creatives that have inspired your work in some shape or form? 

My manager, Naserin Bogado, for sure has been my number one person pushing and guiding me. I'll be forever grateful for that. Another would be my producer Hajile, who has really pushed me in the studio by  helping me nurture and find my sound. 

Any upcoming projects you can tease with us? What's to come?

So in May, I'm releasing my second single "Visions" that I've been working on for months, just trying to perfect it. You can expect a heavier sound with the next single and will be releasing more singles throughout 2018.
