Asian Country Pop Band Details a Troubled Relationship in Melancholy New Single
Los Angeles, CA – Modern country pop band, NuAsia, has released their newest single, “Quiet Violence.” In an artful blend of passionate vocals, enchanting harmonies, and a building instrumental, “Quiet Violence” gives a stunning depiction of the desperation that comes with feeling a loved one slip away. The track is a melancholy, heartfelt tune detailing the initial stages of a relationship’s downfall, where one partner feels trapped in their sorrow as the other remains distracted from their affection. “Quiet Violence,” the first release lifted from their upcoming concept album, is now available for streaming on all platforms worldwide.
The single captures the raw and heartbreaking honesty of the song’s emotionally charged lyrics. Born from the creative mastermind that is NuAsia’s drummer, Roshan Seresinhe shares how the track remains open to various interpretations. “Although the track nor the video does not depict it being an affair, it can be translated that way,” says the artist. “The partner feels like she has no way out as she drowns in her sorrow.” The layered meaning behind the song and its heavy-hearted story allows listeners to place themselves in the shoes of the protagonist by drawing their own conclusions and connections to real life. Although, whichever way it can be interpreted, the lyrics are undoubtedly painful. “I can’t waste my breath on you one more time; feel like I’m holding onto what was never mine,” as sung by lead vocalist Saint Cloud is a beautiful recount of resignation to the situation. A painstaking message, coupled with the masterful production of strings, piano, and drums, creates a harmonious track dripping with emotive expression.
