The Cincinnati native Nova Moura releases "You're Dumb," an acoustic number recapping fickle relationships. The lulling guitar arrangement intensifies Nova's somber lyrics. "This is really just a song about anyone who has turned their backs on me while I was gone. Life can hit you and that's usually when you find out who is in your corner and who's not, that's the sort of inspiration for this one," Nova writes.
Nova’s music lives in the space between intimacy and seclusion, reminding us that they are often one and the same. Drawing inspiration from the likes of Frank Ocean and The Weeknd, Nova’s musical journey stared as a collection of improvised bedroom recordings and quickly evolved into an exploration of vulnerability, loneliness, and isolation.

More About Nova Moura:
Nova’s often simmering, and always surreal R&B eschews the highs and lows of traditional pop; his music inhabits the gray areas, the complexities and contradictions, and the voids we don’t want to confront. Nova is a persona, in many ways more honest than the ones we wear to face the world: His music embodies the most fragile parts of ourselves, the invincible parts that don’t have to fake feelings, the undeniable and often brutal honesty. It’s the sound of vulnerability without apology; that’s where he finds strength, that’s where he invites us to connect.
