I have been following this artist for months now! She was recommended to me by a friend with the "promise" that something really good is coming up and I should stay up-to-date with her socials!
Today, my waiting was finally over.
Nuâge just introduced her first synth-pop single called ''sixteen hundred miles'' AND I AM OBSESSED!
The video finds a broken couple, at an old semi-functional adventure park, who are trying not to end their relationship in a bad way. Brilliant photography and beautiful shots! A fresh and creative idea, that to me says more about how addictive abusive relationships can be and how many people are trapped in them. The adventure park could potentially symbolise the childish innocence a relationship can have in the beginning, when everything seems fun and colourful. And the end, can be the cruel but liberating death of a relationship like this one.
"...sixteen hundred miles, and you cant stand yourself..." How far does someone have to travel, to find their inner peace? What if sixteen hundred miles are not enough?
The song will be included in the forthcoming synth-pop/minimal synth/80s revival with-a-dash-of-disco album "sixteen hundred miles", which will be released soon in vinyl and in digital form.
This album itself is a dedication to a break-up, a loss and sticky chewed gums.
