About "Tukua Te Kūata, Love Now"
‘Tukua te Kūata’ - ‘Love Now’ - Huia

Written in the midst of rāhui, this song was a free flow of thoughts.
Life is too short to hold back your love.

When did you, last koha/gift your aroha/love?
When did you, last allow aroha/love?

With a soft pulsing RnB beat from Rei, ‘Tukua te Kūata’ has a warm lullaby feel and is recorded, mixed and mastered by Kog Studio, with te reo tautoko from Lois McIver and Te Māngai Pāho.

“Do it all now. Burn the candles, eat the cake, use the soap… do all the things!”

Huia had some amazing gigs planned for summer including a mainstage spot at Splore and Sound Valley and these have been moved forward to the next summer! She has been shaping her next album and now with the release of ‘Tukua te Kūata’ in both english and te reo Māori, this is the first glimpse of what the musicscape will be.

LYRICS BELOW

V1
Kua rongo koe i tēnei tōiri (Anyone picking up on this vibe?)
Whakatika ai i te ao mārama (Trying to make the whole world right
Ka pari mai te tai o kohuki (Thoughts are creeping in my mind)
I mahue ki a Hine-nui-te-pō (Darkness I have left behind)
Rangona ana tenei i tō awe (Anyone feel this in their soul)
This energy I gotta let it go (Tukua te mamae e ake ake)

CH
Tukua tukua tukua te kūata (Send it forth, send forth the love)
Tukua tukua tukua te kūata (Send it forth, send forth the love)
He poto noa te oranga, kaua e tāwhia (Life is short, don’t hold back)

V2
Kua rongo koe i tēnei tōiri (Anyone picking up on this vibe)
Whakatika ai i te ao mārama (Trying to make the whole world right)
Ka kopi i ōku kimokimo (All I can do is close my eyes)
E horopaki ana ki te maruāpō (And wrap you up in the night)
Ki te kore au e pā ki a koe (and if I can’t reach you)
Ka taea tonu te tuku kūata (I’m still able to send my love)

BR
Ki te kore au e pā ki a koe (I’m still able to send my love)
Ka taea tonu te tuku kūata (Life is short, don’t hold back)
He poto noa te oranga, kaua e tāwhia

CH
Tukua tukua tukua te kūata (Send it forth, send forth the love)
Tukua tukua tukua te kūata (Send it forth, send forth the love)
He poto noa te oranga, kaua e tāwhia (Life is short, don’t hold back)
