Emerging Australian singer, songwriter Kobe White shares his new drop titled ‘Bossa Nova Girl’.
The 2000’s R&B infused single captures glimpses of Spanish and Pop aspects while he continues to write notable lyrics and melodies. The song is his first new single in 2021 with promises of at least two new releases this year, as he seeks to build momentum off his 2020 single ‘Beautiful‘ and his sophomore teenage, puppy-love song ‘Run Away‘.
While most artists and music follow a specific blueprint when it comes to the creative process, this one strays the course as Kobe shares the influence behind the single and how it came to life. “We had been trying to finish a particular song for months and I remember going into the studio feeling a little flat and itching to create something new. I had just watched an ad for a rum company the night before that had this really catchy jingle with a rumba/bossa nova style to it, so I thought lets just make something fun where we can reset and see what happens.”
From that commercial, Kobe creates a fictional dancer who is disconnected from her life from past experiences. With the fear of being hurt again, she creates a persona surrounding her passion to prevent further damage. White realizes this, trying to persuade her that his intentions are different. But ultimately accepts she’s not willing to come to terms with what could happen if she lets people get too close. She detaches her own-self and finds identity in her new persona, a “Bossa Nova Girl”.
