Australian pop artist Wafia has just released her new single Hurricane, and it's a song that'll change the way you think about heartbreak.
All too often, people focus on the effects of romantic heartbreak between those involved, but it can also affect your community and the friendships you've made through your ex - something Wafia knows all too well.
Speaking about Hurricane, Wafia says it's a track that came about after a long period of reflection. “When you go through a tough break up, there are a lot of secondary losses that can come with it too - you & your ex’s mutual friends, their family, the community you built together and last year I lost all of that.
“I took a lot of time to reflect and I realised I had so many incredible people around me of my own that were there and they were constants. This song to me is about my friendship with them and celebrates them. I spent a day recently driving around LA delivering some of those people flowers and cakes I baked which I filmed and then turned into a little lyric video.”
The track comes off her upcoming Good Things EP, which is set to be released on August 21st, and will also feature Pick Me, a single Wafia released earlier this year.
Wafia's also made a lyric video for Hurricane, with the visuals serving as a time capsule of her experiences in quarantine. The video sees her surprising her friends and spreading positivity to those around her who need it most.
