Upcoming, multi-disciplinary artist, Nora Lilith, unveils her enchanting and genre-less new single, ‘Misfed.’ Self-written, produced, and mixed, ‘Misfed’ is a remarkable piece of work from the recent Majestic Casual signee. An alternative, genre-defying masterpiece fused with subtle jazz elements and abstract lyricism, ‘Misfed’ is the perfect introductory piece to mark a new era for Nora Lilith.
Reminiscent of her namesake, ‘Misfed’ sees the young musician fully embrace the exquisite, ethereal and alluring darkness which she takes from ‘Lilith’; a female character in Jewish/ Mesopotamian folklore who stands to offer a sense of strength in darkness, much like Nora herself. In the music video to ‘Misfed’, Nora Lilith plays a dark and elusive character which she calls her ‘shadow self’, the manifestation of her own intrusive thoughts and self-judgment.
Speaking more on the meaning and inspiration behind ‘Misfed’, Nora Lilith explains:
“The lyrical meaning behind this song definitely falls into the same theme as many of my songs; an expression of awareness of lost and stolen pieces of myself and a desperation for them to be found. It’s all the things my heart has been deprived of, and all the terror associated with entering the world with those wounds. The music video for this track showcases an angle of this: the frictions between various pieces of oneself: the judgment, shame, and mental contortions one experiences in the wake of controlling and being controlled by one's own shadow selves. The end of the video represents an untethering from this and a liberated entrance into the world.”
