Nova Moura makes stirring bedroom music for moments of isolation and vulnerability. “Gone Girl,” premiered today (9/12/18) by Highsnobiety, is the enigmatic soul artist’s smooth collaborative track with Florida producer XXYYXX that explores the gamut of emotions caused by abandonment and separation.
“‘Gone Girl’ is a song I wrote a long time ago about separation. It’s one of those explorations of abandonment and what that causes; the thoughts, feelings, and tendencies. The song talks about the freshness of those wounds and the life that those wounds helped to create. It’s also a sort of conversation, I guess, with that person who abandoned me. I wanted to express that the failed relationship wasn’t solely my fault in the hopes that maybe someday she would hear it.” – Nova Moura
