The Poland-born LA transplant found herself living through a harrowing situation where her significant other prioritized the social safety of maintaining a toxic relationship over ending something that was already fading away. Feeling frustrated and gaslit, Elly Tess poured her passion into this track from start to finish; she says, “I loved being able to turn this deeply painful experience into a song to which you can dance all of your feelings out.” For Elly Tess, “‘ghosting’ is a manifestation of deep frustration. I think there’s nothing more cowardly than keeping someone around as a back-up plan,” she says. Viewers watch the artist as she embodies the full scope of emotions from her experience – frustration, bitterness, and resentment – and dances in spite of them.
