The single, out today (February 4) on streaming platforms, was produced by Rhesa Adityarama of folk rock band Endah N Rhesa. Over tinkling keys and a choir, Gavendri laments: “I probably understand why you’d do this / I probably understand why you would leave / I probably understand why you’d say bad things about me / Maybe it’d make you feel better”.

‎”The story being told in this song really happened to me. I wrote this song when I was truly sad and devastated because of a betrayal by someone I trusted,” Gavendri said in a statement, per local outlet Hi!Pontianak.

Gavendri elaborated further on Instagram: “Probably this next release I dedicate to those who keep their mouths shut, to those who [are] blamed for something they didn’t do. For once in my life, I ever [sic] wish somebody to burn themselves in hell.”

Gavendri first began releasing music in 2020 with the singles ‘See You Another Time’ and ‘Sepi’ before going on to release ‘Tel Aviv to Honolulu’ in January 2021.
