On the latest episode of Wander Jam with Migz, our host Migz Haleco got to hang out with one of the newest duos introduced to Philippine airwaves: singer-songwriter, Moira dela Torre, and US-based artist, Nieman.
While many people recognize Moira’s heavenly voice with notable acoustic hits such as “Tagpuan” and “Malaya,” her vocal chemistry with Nieman is undeniable. When Migz asked the two artists how it felt to be a duo, they said that it came naturally for them because of their closeness as cousins.
“We were just joking around yesterday—even the way we sing, we take our breaths at the same time.” Nieman said, to which Moira jokingly added, “Pati dighay namin, sabay!”
On their newest collaboration titled “Knots,” the first track off Moira’s much awaited EP of the same name, it features a touch of RnB and soul, a sound that we don’t usually hear from her.
“Sobrang natakot ako for a while because I really enjoy RnB music, but it was never something I thought that I could do. But when you really have positive and great people around that believe in you, it's like anything is possible." Moira said, referring to how encouraging Nieman was during their whole song-writing process.
After catching up with the duo, Migz, Moira, and Nieman hopped on the Wander Van for an adventure, and jammed to “Knots” as they made their way through the city. It was then when our host learned a very fun fact about their latest bop. “A lot of the lines from ‘Knots,’ we wrote in the car while driving to the studio.” said Moira, to which Nieman added, “So this is very natural for us.”
