gobbinjr's Playful "November 163" Details a Relationship Gone Sour

gobbinjr is the playful synth-pop project of Emma Witmer, a young Brooklyn transplant with a gift for wonky melody. Originally from Wisconsin, Witmer has carved herself a prominent place in Brooklyn’s crowded DIY scene with her saccharine-sweet, sentimental tunes, which often hide darker themes of fear and anxiety.

gobbinjr’s new record Ocala Wick, out June 8 via Topshelf Records, was entirely written, performed, recorded, and produced by Witmer. The wobbly and pretty “November 163” details a relationship gone sour, with Witmer singing, “I liked when you avoided me/ It made it easier for me to breathe.” However, by the track’s end, she’s grown bolder: “I’ll be alone but i think that’s fine/I’m not as hopeless as you might like.”
