Self-described as “nightmare pop”, Nashville-based artist Notelle has shared her latest single, ‘Come For Me’. Released at the beginning of March, the track is a moody, shadowy exploration of old loves and how they posses both the memory and the body.
Inspired by the likes of Nine Inch Nails and Billie Eilish, Notelle blends elements of industrial, pop, and electronic music in order to create her haunting tracks. On ‘Come For Me’, her brooding vocals combine with dense beats and exploratory “left of centre” production to produce a captivating soundscape.
Notelle explains more about the track’s premise: “I have always found the concept of ‘shadows’ fascinating, as they’re quite literally a dark sided piece of you that is intangible, yet always present. It reminded me a lot of the remnants of an old love. They’re there still, but not really. It’s a frightening concept. It’s widely accepted, at this point, that all living things are made up of energy – and I’ve been reading more and more recently about how even after a living thing has left a space, it is possible that their residual energy can linger. You can feel it, even when you’d give anything to erase it. That’s what this song is about; that shadow that haunts you, that memory that overstays it’s welcome, that person whose presence it’s still there long after they’re gone.”
