VISSIA recently released the single, ‘About Moving On‘. The single is about moving on from a relationship and having moments where you feel like you’ve moved on. Meanwhile, something happens that makes you feel as if you still have a ways to go. Its light shimmering synths juxtaposed the weighty piano gives ‘About Moving On‘ a nice shoegaze atmosphere. With the minimalistic instrumentation, the vocals are free to take center stage, gently floating on top of the music. VISSIA is able to draw the listener into an intimate headspace where you are faced with the realization of the moment. Here’s what VISSIA had to say about ‘About Moving On‘:
“‘About Moving On’ started out with this visual I had playing in my mind in slow motion. You’re at your favourite bar or pub minding your own business over a pint with friends, and the person who completely shattered your heart walks in. You can hardly breathe, hardly move, and the racing in your chest wants to escape from your mouth, but gets stuck in your throat. You desperately wish you were made of sugar so you could wander out into the rain and melt away.
Most of the time you’re really okay, but you’re just not where you thought you were at yet. It’s nobody’s fault that grieving isn’t linear. It just is what it is. An emotional soup of salt and bittersweet that you’ll have to swallow spoonful by spoonful and maybe never really get to the bottom of it. Why would you ever expect a big love to die a small death?”
