NXTSTYLE’s 2020 New Music Guide: Shirina

Australian singer/songwriter Shirina caught our attention last year with her melodic Pop single “I Only Hate You Cause I Love You”. We had a chance to talk to the artist who details her plans to tour and release new music. Check it out below!


An interview with Shirina


“Only Hate You Cause I Love You” came together like all my best songs… after a breakup. For me, writing that song was like therapy and helped me heal in many ways.

For me, music is storytelling. It’s me sharing my pain, my stories, my thoughts and my experiences. If they can understand, connect and relate, then I know I’ve done my job. They can choose to take whatever they want from my songs.

I released “I Only Hate You Cause I Love You” in 2019 and I’d definitely say that that’s the song I connect with the most at the moment. Because I mean, who does feel that way at some point in their lives? I’ve had a lot of ups and downs this year and the most important thing I’ve learned is to take care of my mental health. It’s SO IMPORTANT!!!

In 2020 I’m going to Brazil and the US again. Plus dropping some awesome songs and collaborations. BE READY GUYS!!

I honestly have no idea and am open to collaborating with anyone. 🙂
