Following the release of her bittersweet single “Broken House”, North American artist T R U V O N N E returns with the heartbreaking “Coffee & Cigarettes”.
Whereas “Broken House” detailed a relationship on the brink of collapse, “Coffee & Cigarettes” marks the end of the intimate partnership – shrouded in mournful soundscapes and rumbling electronics. Her soft vocals are met with the distant echo of her lost lover, repeating their parting lines as the romantic binds begin to unravel.
“We all live in a place of doubt – constantly feeling as though we are inadequate. We do not trust ourselves or our judgement which causes us to ultimately never even try. We love to not love. We feel to not feel. We run to stay,” T R U V O N N E explains. “We are caught in the idea that we cannot make the correct decision, so we’d rather make no decision at all. So instead we do the opposite of engaging in things meant to be intimate and when we do feel, it does not hurt as much. When we do fall we have a parachute. But even then, let’s be honest. You can never guarantee your landing.”
“Coffee & Cigarettes” is out now – tune in below.
