This song came to life after an unsettling encounter between Novaa and a stranger online who turned out to be a creep.
“But when I started writing the second verse I found myself talking about the way we present ourselves online and how we are completely different people online and in real life. Still we often think we connect with each other online which can lead to a lot of confusion and loneliness.”
Track of the week. A song that feels definitive of the times we live in now, and on a personal level really gave me something to think about. Lyrics aside, the track balances gentle beats with a subtle sense of tension. Quite a beautiful piece.
“Often I feel like an outcast but then I feel like most of my peers feel like outcasts as well. I always thought that being young means being hopeful and full of ideas and energy. And I still believe that, but somehow the reasons to be hopeful get less and less.”
