TALA’s new single ‘Nevermind’ is an intimate look at words left unsaid

Gather ‘round, folks: In today’s self-debriefing session, we’re confronting our feelings to a tee. And don’t worry, we already have a playlist for that—it starts when TALA takes it away. 

The singer-songwriter and anime superfan unraveled “Nevermind” today, Oct. 15, her latest single after the equally dreamlike “24.” But while this Fern-produced drop transports us to cotton candy-colored skies with soothing vocals and gentle pacing, it also does a double take at admitting when there’s an elephant in the room in a relationship. “‘Nevermind is out now… hope u cry on the floor when u listen to it lol,” TALA writes on Instagram

In “Nevermind,” TALA sings of awareness about the uncertainty while being with someone, especially in lines like, “In between realities, I’m not sure what we’re missing / But I’ll be okay (if you are too) with acting like there’s nothing going on.” 

However, this wishful thinking reaches a point of believable exhaustion, shaping up a temporary retreat. “Nevermind / it was never mine / one day, but now nevermind.” For a title that suggests deliberate avoidance, this song actually does the opposite: Facing what needs to be faced, despite the shaky look of things.
