Time stands still for Mokita on new single ‘ICLYA’, a musing on intentional love and intimate moments. It’s dramatic, anthemic and nostalgia-tinged; glassy guitar licks set the tone, eventually opening up into a rousing chorus that relies heavily on Mokita’s emotive vocal performance.
“This was one of those songs that kind of came out of nowhere. There’s this wild thing that happens when you fall in love where you reach this point where you’re like ‘I don’t think it’s possible for me to love this person any more than I do right now’. You can’t imagine doing anything without them but you also can’t imagine waking up next to any other person, or taking any other person home to meet your parents. The idea and emotion behind this song was simple and so I wanted to keep the production super simple as well. I wanted people to be able to feel the emotions that I was feeling at the time”.
