This song title brings some modern-day apocalyptic thoughts to most of us. If you've been in this situation, I'm sure you can relate.
But Ivan Ave found some beauty in this, hence his newest single. He explains the story behind it:
In the last summer months of recording the album, I spent a couple weeks with a phone that wouldn’t charge properly. I later identified my charger as the problem. Anyway, being cut off from the constant stream of information we now call reality, allowed for this song to emerge. Circular themes in my life became more apparent, as they do every now and again, in cyclical patterns. The trick is to notice them, which I probably wouldn’t have if my phone was working all summer.
The sweet melodies & melancholic vibe felt like they were made for his recognizable flow.
"Phone Won't Charge" is part of his upcoming full-length album Double Goodbyes, due April 2020.
