“I can’t you let go/ I am stuck in limbo” sings Marie Reiter in repetition, recounting her time spent with a man on Limbo. It’s a story of a lost unrequited love being played behind a fuzzy veil of melancholy. Spurts of color and sparkles tease through the ambient pop instrumental with shades of nostalgic images to a time before Reiter’s heart shattered. As the song winds down, a frantic synth starts like an erasure of somber memories and a breakthrough to the other side.
You can find Limbo off of Marie Reiter’s soon to be released debut album, Nazareth.
