Christina Novelli – ‘Numb (Bobina Remix)’
‘Numb’ is the final act in the single-saga birthed by ‘Through My Eyes’ — Christina Novelli’s outstanding, acoustically-based 2019 album.

Bobina finds the middle ground between the Original and the Extended mixes of ‘Numb’. He keeps its tempo low, supporting it with the rhythmic sway of its percussive loops and occasional bassy booms, while a raft of string and piano instrumentation and crafted FX further swirl its mood.
