Have you ever had that feeling when you wake up in the morning, the sun is shining through the curtains, the light lands on the person you woke up next to, and in that moment you realize, for the first time, that you’re in love? Or do you know that feeling when you hear them laugh and there isn’t a single sound in the world more beautiful? Well, NOVACUB does and if you don’t, you’ll be yearning for it after hearing the title track from her latest EP This is Forever. The song perfectly encapsulates those little moments that make the whole world stand still.
The song from Louise Bartell’s solo project NOVACUB, is an unabashed love song to her girlfriend.
My favorite part of this indie pop gem is that Bartell admits to being clueless about how she is going to approach this relationship. She sings, “Oh damn, I don’t know what I’m doing. No plan. No plan. I’m winning til I’m losing.” But she does not need to know. She may not be prepared but she has no anxiety about it. This is the way she feels and she is ready and willing to explore it. The track is a hopeful moment for Bartell.
In the end, NOVACUB’s song, This is Forever, is a lovely exploration of the little moments that feel the most important. Check out this single from the latest EP of the same name and while you’re there give the whole project a listen.
