Petroleum 03:18
Been through hell tryna see where my mind at Lost track what the fuck be the time at Stacks up no way to decline that Me first ya'll n****s still behind that No sun that shine where the blind at Know the plug for the plug where you find that T-shirt take a guess who designed that Shut down any city we flying at


Following on from her pop-inflected single ‘Start Small’, Eora/Sydney producer, songwriter and DJ Ninajirachi today shares a new two-track release ‘Petroleum / Hidden Land’.

The project provides another insight into Ninajirachi’s eclectic and diverse palette that takes a deconstructionist approach to club-infused songwriting. The A-side, ‘Petroleum’, harnesses Nina’s usual glitch pop sound, yet ups the ante with an amalgamation of irresistible melodies and a catchy chorus maintaining her ever-expanding sonic catalogue.

On the release, Nina shares “In 2019 Laces was pitching beat ideas to an artist and he showed me a few when we were hanging out. I loved one of them called "Petroleum" and he let me try out an idea over it. It was meant for someone else, but I ended up stealing it and making this song. This was almost three years ago now and the song has been through many changes. It has been a labour of love and it's both weird and nice that everyone can finally hear it.”

Paired alongside ‘Petroleum’ is the B-side track ‘Hidden Land’, which features Eora/Sydney rapper Raj Mahal to deliver a rowdy sense of club-driven fun that soars with contemporary production. “I met Raj Mahal through our mutual friend Oh Boy but lockdown kept preventing us from writing music together. We finally linked in May this year and made Hidden Land in just a couple of hours” says Nina of their collaboration. “Raj really appreciates music production more than most non-producer artists I've worked with and he has really cool taste. We've made more music together since that'll hopefully come out eventually.”
