Fancy getting into your Friday feels? Well, New Zealand’s fastest rising star, Navvy, is here with a bouncy pop track, “Rock Bottom”, that is sure to have you hating your ex and potentially shedding an angry tear. Featuring an electronic bass that is brimming with 80s disco sensibilities, a pensive yet dance-worthy tone prevails. But, with Navvy’s sickly-sweet yet energetic vocals delivering all-too-relatable lyrics on the pains of watching a once-loved one move on, a Dua Lipa-esque vibe emerges as the track cements itself as the ultimate pop anthem that you will fall helplessly for.
“’Rock Bottom’ is a song about knowing that as soon as someone moves on, they aren’t going to have any need for you anymore,” explains the artist when speaking on the meaning behind her track. “It’s a tough pill to swallow, to realise that a person you spent all your time thinking about, caring for and hanging out with will now only have a reason to come to you if they are at their lowest possible point.”
And while the track itself is an ode to heartbreak, its accompanying dance-filled visuals, which have been choreographed by the immense mind behind Jennifer Lopez’s halftime show and Rihanna’s Savage X Fenty Show, aka Kirsten Dodgen, are sure to have you and your girlfriends dancing along to those sad girl sounds.
