Ada Lea, has shared her touching and heartbreaking new track “hurt.” Somehow the warmth and beauty of Lea’s voice, brings a comfort to you’re heart, despite the sad difficult theme of the song. “hurt,” is Lea’s first release, since her 2020 EP Woman. ““hurt” lives in a snowy Montreal winter, a city that Levy calls home and lives and breathes through her music. It thrums with bass and brooding keys, as Levy uses frank language and imagery”: “somebody hurt me badly, now I’m stuck in a rut // now I don’t know my body // I could say it or say nothing at all // take a walk or take none at all // get on a bus back to montreal // tell my friends or say nothing at all.”
“I wanted to find a way to communicate complicated feelings using the simplest language possible,” says Levy. “I came with a narrative and removed almost every detail, so as not to obfuscate the feeling – but left it open in terms of a resolution: was this hurt necessarily a bad thing?”
“hurt” follows Levy’s woman, here EP (2020) and her debut, what we say in private (2019).
