The theme is insightful and it's a moderate sensual journey blending perfectly with the sense of pressure in the beat,
The music production achieves a delicious dark tonality with the more synthpunk oriented elements, and in general, the song portrays a beautiful dreamlike landscape with its amazing synth pad layers and melodies.
The vocals have a very attractive personality and sit perfectly in the mix in terms of clarity, animosity and a well balanced dark mood, in the end, this is a gorgeous dark song.

The exile of being ends with the return of the heroine to eternity, the silence of her loud ambitions and the finding of absolute peace.
The title of their upcoming album “Afterglow” has several meanings and extensions relating to MVT’s work and personal lives and was used in its more melancholic hues to express these bittersweet feelings when something significantly beautiful ends, that being a relationship, an experience, a certain life stage etc. Marva Von Theo took their time with this album in order to dive deeper into each and every sound they contrived, to further expand their sonic palette, to redefine their vision, and to find the balance between pop and experimental synth music, between poetry and songwriting, between reality and dream. In December 2020, Marva Von Theo also shared their first single, a stunning sci-fi ballad called “Embrace this Madnes
