Good news for anyone wallowing in fits of despair this week—which is definitely not something I can relate to, why would you ask?—because this track, “Over Here,” from Noita, aka Noa Southcott, a 19-year-old musician from Mexico via Canada, is here to help you burrow even deeper into it. The hazy, slow-moving track perfectly encapsulates the sense of sadness and, more importantly, inability to figure out what to do with yourself, when your heart is broken.
“The song is about a time in my life when I was young, depressed and confused,” she says. “It’s about the impatience of being infatuated with someone or something that you know is terrible for you but you can’t get over it.”
As for the video, it was more about mood than specifically translating the lyrics. “I was with a few friends and we were just browsing through old anime online and found some really sick videos we loved. We just decided to spontaneously record the video then and there. I didn’t want to have a huge production to the video, I just wanted to capture the emotion and feel of the song.” Watch, below:
