Mokita team up with Ella Vos in new single “Take It Back,” a reflective balladry that explores the paradoxical waters of relationships. It’s a soulful, meditative piece that jumps between the extreme ends of the simple beginnings and messy endings. Enjoy:
On the single, Mokita shared:
“Most of the songs that I write I kind of know going into them if its something I want to do for my project, but this one was a little different. I wrote ‘Take It Back’ with my buddy Tommy Lee James and was originally writing it with someone else in mind to cut it, but the more I started working on it the more I started connecting with it. I had been wanting to do a song with Ella for a while and as I continued working on the production of the song I kept hearing her on the track. I’m so glad it worked out, as I’ve been a fan of hers for some time. The song deals with some of the complexities of relationships, and talks about the paradox between how easy things can feel at the onset of a relationship versus how difficult it is to get passed those things once the relationship has ended.”
