Emerging singer-songwriter and artist Tempest has returned with “So Gone,” featuring friend, frequent collaborator, and co-writer Naomi Wild. Her second single of the year offers a glimpse at Tempest’s artistic versatility and finds her unabashedly meditating on the pain and confusion of being ghosted in a complex situationship. The track arrives alongside a cinematic music video directed by Lakewood Mall, featuring rising New Zealand artist TAPZ GALLANTINO as Tempest’s love interest. Watch it now below.
Speaking on the track, Tempest said, “‘So Gone’ is showing the different perspectives that we might have when it comes to being ghosted. The first part of the song explains how much a waste of time that person was. While the second half of the song shows vulnerability towards the situation.”
Tempest continues to collaborate with fellow rising artists. Her latest collaboration with Zyah Belle for “Not The One” has resulted in press praise from VICE, UPROXX, Rated RnB, and more. “So Gone” is a continuation of Tempest’s ethos of love, empowerment, and self-awareness, that finds the rising artist leaning into her acoustic sound, enmeshed with a refreshed alt-R&B vibe.
