Berlin based alt-pop singer-songwriter NOVAA returns with ‘I’m Hungry’, her brand new release lifted from the forthcoming album ‘She’s A Rose’ due later this year. Fusing delicate electronics over Novaa‘s haunting, serene vocals, she offers a poignant message of healing and hope in these troubled times.
Novaa details the track: “Often there is an image of eating disorders that holds a harmful and false glamor, that portraits that people have an eating disorder because they want to be skinny, because they want to fit a certain stereotype, which can be the case but mostly there is much more to it. When I was about 14 or 15 I developed an eating disorder. It took me ages to accept that I have it and even longer to decide that I want to heal from it. Sometimes when we don’t understand things, our selves, life, the way people interact with us, with the world, when we feel like we’re not in control of them, we tend to try to find simple solutions. Solutions that make us feel like we’re in control. I found control in treating my body, myself in a way I wanted to, in a way that was harmful. It obviously was an illusion, but at those times a very convincing one to me. I am still and constantly learning and healing from it, and „I’m Hungry“ is a part of my learning, my healing process. If you struggle with something similar, I see you, I feel you, you got this, you are loved.”
24-year old Novaa’s star is on the rise. Her recent album ‘The Futurist’ (2020) and self-titled debut (2019) were lauded by tastemaker press and peers alike including Complex Magazine, The Line of Best Fit, Clash, Dummy Magazine, Kaltblut Magazine, Nothing But Hope and Passion et al. 2021 will bear witness to Novaa’s brand new full length effort ‘She A Rose’, marking her out as a rare talent to watch out for this year.
