Carlota Moreno described the piece as being ‘in a Bossa Nova style’ and she picked this style because of her love of the genre and country Brazil – where Bossa Nova is the main style of music. The song lyrics talk about her love of a man, and her affections and losses in love. Emotions are a very common topic to sing about when playing in a Bossa Nova style.
The second subject in the piece was not originally in a different tempo and time signature, but as Moreno states, ‘when we tried it in the band, I loved it so much that I decided to keep it’. This second subject does not fit the Bossa Nova style and so when mixing this section, I took a very different approach.
