Los Angeles based indie artist Onsen (real name Drew Straus) has returned with a lovely new offering entitled “Golden Heart.” The track deals with the pivotal moment when someone finds out their ex-partner has a new love, always a bitter pill to swallow.

The track has a powerful and enchanting electronic power to it that perfectly captures the feeling of heartbreak and frustration felt during such a tough situation. The combination of the chilly electronic atmosphere and those delicate vocals is too much to bear.

As Straus explains:

I wrote this when I found out that a long term partner was starting to see someone new. In that moment it’s easy to question every choice you made in the relationship and to wonder if you might want them back. At the very least, it’s the moment a breakup feels definitive. As such, this song is an unexpected emotional upwelling, a mix of wistfulness and gratitude for what you had.
