ENOLA, the moniker for Naarm/Melbourne-based post-punk solo artist Ruby Marshall (they/them), is thrilled to announce their debut EP All Is Forgiven out November 3, and shares new single ‘Looking Back’ together with a music video directed by Oscar O’Shea.
Opening with running bass underpinning a melancholic hook, ‘Looking Back’ quickly moves to leverage shimmering guitars and masterful use of drums to communicate an urgent plea – “Stop wasting what you don’t have”. It’s a track about taking advantage of time, our most finite resource on an individual level, and the importance of showing ourselves a bit of compassion if we make mistakes in the process.
On the single, ENOLA shares “This song, to me, speaks of the need to be gentle on yourself, forgive yourself, forgive everyone and let go. You do not need to suffer or come close to your own mortality to truly appreciate the moment in front of you, life is too fleeting to hold onto so much guilt and shame, and things that no longer serve you.”
