A new year means making amends with our past in hopes of a fresh start and bettering ourselves. Desiire is a Toronto-based singer/songwriter translating the complex simplicity of mood and emotion into moving melodies. He recently collaborated with TiKA and Casey MQ for “Goodbyes”, an anthem commemorating failed relationships.

Musician Casey MQ provides an optimistic foundation of strings and drums to set the tone of “Goodbyes”. Desiire yearns for clarity with rigged, raspy vocals. TiKA’s style is warm and inviting adding empathic energy of vulnerable reassurance showing that we are seen behind our masked crooked smiles.

“Goodbyes” reminds us to find the good in departures and that some losses are blessings in disguise.
