Nova Moura makes stirring bedroom music for moments of isolation and vulnerability. “Gone Girl,” premiered 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
