allie, the moniker of Nashville-based singer-songwriter Allie Cuva, has shared a new song from their forthcoming debut album, Maybe Next Time. ‘ghosts’ follows previous singles ‘quinn’, ‘ETYG’, and ‘listless’. Check it out below (via FLOOD Magazine).
“‘ghosts’ is a rumination of if and how my long-term ex-partner and I will be remembered by our close friends as the couple we once were (‘Are we ghosts in our friends’ memories? Do we haunt them now?’),” Cuva explained in a statement. “It also relentlessly addresses my anxieties of feeling ‘not enough’ or otherwise insufficient for my ex-partner in my newfound personhood of transness and gender nonconformity, knowing that these new factors would render us incompatible as romantic companions. ‘ghosts’ is a mourning, a reckoning, but it is also the powerful moment of realizing myself. I am—and will always be—enough.”
Maybe Next Time is out August 27 via Other People Records.
