Audrey Nuna releases “Starving.” featuring Teezo Touchdown. “I wrote this song in Joshua Tree around close friends,” says Audrey on the single. “The melody and words were inspired by the guitar chords that were playing. We were all sitting around in a dark home studio set-up and the melody was a one-take. Being around people that I could feel vulnerable with allowed the song to happen naturally. It’s a song about going through ups and downs with someone to realize in the end that the irony is pointing right back at you.” The single features So!YoON! on guitar and Lauv on bass.

Born to Korean immigrant parents in New Jersey, where she was one of few Asian Americans in her suburban town, she began teaching herself how to record as a teenager out of sheer boredom. In 2018, her raw self-released tracks began to garner online attention, leading to her inking a deal with Arista by age 20 and dropping out of NYU’s Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music after a year. Nuna ascended to stardom with 2019’s “Comic Sans,” featuring Jack Harlow, and 2020’s “damn Right.” In 2021, she released her debut LP, a liquid breakfast, which brought her to perform at festivals like Lollapalooza, Head in the Clouds, Day N Vegas, and Hangout. After showing more of her versatility through her 2022 collaborative EP with Deb Never, chump change, she joined Ashnikko’s Weedkiller world tour as an opening act in 2023. The following year, she contributed “Pleasures” to the soundtrack of the Paramount animated film, The Tiger’s Apprentice.
