If you’re up to date with our music discoveries you already had a chance to get to know Moyka – a Norwegian electro-pop gem. It’s difficult to walk away from her music as she has this innocent, positive and very infectious energy. ‘When’ is a lead single from artist’s latest long-play ‘The Revelations of Love’. The track layers ethereal melodies with the dark aura of heartbreak to implore the listener with the looming question: when is the right time to let go of a lost lover? In its entirety, The Revelations of Love effortlessly combines beginnings and endings, naivety and maturity, and hope and heartbreak, to paint a painfully realistic yet nuanced portrait of love.
On the album, Moyka notes,
The overall theme of the album is love. It starts with the discovery of a new romance, leading further into the different stages and situations you could be finding yourself in when experiencing feelings of love with someone as a young adult. I sing about falling in and out of love and the realization that sometimes it’s not the way you thought it would be.
To me, love is the most important feeling of them all. It’s so existential ‘cause it’s what I think makes us human. Last year hit us so hard. I felt a lot of grief and sadness because of everything that happened in the world and in my life. As a person who feels a lot intensely, it’s hard to not feel overwhelmed by everything. One thing that kind of woke up the flame in me again, was music that reminded me there is hope to feel good again. To feel love again.
