Unlike many artists, Gabriela’s music palette is one of variation: fusing electronica with flavourings of indie soul, hints of alt-pop and subtle arrangements of jazz complexities, she has perfected a sui generis sound whilst boasting her fearless take on genre-blurring.

The soul-drenched anthem is at its crux centred of self-exploration, as we embark on the voyage through a woman’s intricate yet deceptive narratives as she dedicates herself to the paths that ultimately harm her. Only familiar with toxic love, she finds solace in what’s familiar, even if it’s baleful.
Through velvety vocals, Gabriela unfolds the pressing narrative through poignant lyricism—which reads like poetry—accompanied by a spellbinding tempo. The chorus is transcendent and raw, encompassing a sacred quality that melds electronic sounds with hypnotic guitar lines and occasional riffs. It’s intersection of pulsating electronic drums serves as testament to her eloquent electronic soundscapes, as we witness her superlunary vocals take centre stage with the backdrop of an infectious melody that’s sure to get your body swaying.
