Gothum and the Noise Pollution‘s ‘The Curse of a True Romance’ explores the complexities of a long distance relationship breaking up. From the sentiment and logic behind it to the combination of nostalgia and moving on.
“It’s about loving someone with no logical step forward because life is sending you in different directions. Hollywood and society tell us that love can conquer all, but sometimes the circumstances are set against you, sometimes love is not enough,” the NYC-based singer/songwriter said in about the self-produced track a press release.
The song is the true story of a wanderer finding romance in a foreign land. He wrote the song after an argument with someone he was in a long-distance relationship with foreshadowed the end of the romance.
His experience as a first-generation American and his travels inform Gothum’s music. He’s joined by Tim White on bass and Finn Baulch on drums.
