Norwegian Singer and Producer Moyka “Illusion” From upcoming album “The Revelations of Love” out on October, 22
The new single “Illusion” immerses listeners in the initial fantasy of falling for someone whose intentions are different from their facade. She paints a sharp picture of deception and duplicity in the emotional music video, undercut with light, airy visuals characteristic of the self-proclaimed “pop witch.”
The artist says: “When I have a crush I tend to daydream and make up stories in my mind about meeting and being around the person that I like. In this song I wake up from the daydream to only find it was an illusion. Sometimes love happens like that. It’s quite naive, but that’s what makes me love it so much.”
Set for release October 22 via Snafu Records, the project is set to be a centerpiece in the universe Moyka has so expertly crafted thus far.
From a new relationship in “Stay” to heartbreak in “December (I Never Learn)” to moving on in “I Don’t Wanna Hold On,” each single offers a unique perspective on love, lending to Moyka’s artistry and storytelling ability.
Citing the forward-thinking electro pop of artists like Röyksopp and Robyn as inspirations for her production style, Moyka released her debut EP Circles in 2019 and her sophomore EP Spaces in 2020. Partnered with Norwegian music collective Made alongside pop phenoms Sigrid and AURORA, Moyka is poised to become a mainstay in the global indie pop scene.
Moyka also adds: “As a person who feels a lot intensely, it’s hard to not feel overwhelmed by everything. One thing that kind of woke up the flame in me again, was music that reminded me that there is hope to feel good again. To feel love again. Everything shifts so rapidly and sometimes I lose track of where I’m going. Music helped me get back again.”
