This Vancouver-based artist’s self-described ‘Doom Croon’ style intricately weaves together elements of indietronica, new wave, and a touch of ’90s nostalgia with a contemporary sound. Through heartfelt lyrics and emotive melodies, Netzke invites listeners into the aftermath of friction, where moments of pause allow for clarity and kindness to prevail. Ultimately, the song is a testament to the resilience of love, beckoning us back to the table to rediscover connection amidst life’s inevitable challenges.
