Edina Mira “Gone”

Massive Attack’s “Unfinished Sympathy” from 1991 is practically it’s own religion: it’s easily one of the greatest singles of the 90’s, and maybe forever…and that’s the song that instantly came to mind upon hearing this for the first time. While “Gone” is nowhere near as orchestrated as the former, and is more defiant than desperate (the other featured trait of “Unfinished”) it shares a similar skeleton, especially in regards to it’s emotive, and world weary vocal, and subtle yet epic hook. It’s damn beautiful and I wish it were even longer.
