Swedish duo, Vola Tila, announce the release of the “Forget That I Love You” dream pop single. The cinematic saga shimmers in an ethereal haze of two people letting go of each other. It’s off the album, Soon, due out in early 2021.
“This song somehow reflects our thousands of questions about who you really are, and what really remains if you are forced to let go of all that? When we found the chorus, we could loop it for several days and just live in that nostalgic feeling. There is so much sadness in there, but also hope to be on the way,” says Vola Tila.
Crystalline clarity invades the sentimental storyline through trademark Scandinavian melodies and a depth of inner exploration that only the long dark Swedish winters could provide. Johannes Henriksson’s cavernous vocals simultaneously indict and reach for that lost love with the lyrics: “You’re a fraud / And you know it too / Everything you touch / Breaks in two / You’re a fraud / But it feels alright / Cause you’re not alone / Cause I’m on your Side.” Mellow synths introduce an emptiness that eventually gives way as upbeat drumbeats and Richard Andersson’s melodic falsetto explores an unrestrained hopefulness in the midst of surrender.
