London-located, Sydney-raised artist Mali-Koa has released her latest single “Shoebox” and announced that it doubles as the final single off her upcoming debut album Hunger.
About the new track, Mali-Koa explained, “Everyone has had that box of things they keep, in a cupboard or under the bed. It’s a funny sentiment, a box to keep memories both good and bad stuffed away from the world for safekeeping. Whether it’s filled with pictures or mementos of yourself or someone else, this song isn’t only about what ‘things’ are in it; it’s also a gateway in time where you can access memory. Sometimes you’ll come to a crossroad when you have to let something go for the greater good – ‘Shoebox’ is about just that. This song is perhaps the sequel to all my other love songs – the first step towards healing. After processing things, there comes a time to let go of what might be holding you back. ‘Shoebox’ is about the physicality of it all, but equally it’s a story about my lesson in the art of letting go and shedding what no longer serves you.”
