The Day That You Moved On
by TQX (featuring Sia)

Album: GLOBAL INTIMACY (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • TQX's debut single and video is a collaboration with famed Australian singer-songwriter Sia. At the time of the song's release nothing was known about TQX, other than their name stands for TourniquetX.
  • The song was co-written by TQX and Sia with a message addressing the dangers of contemporary technological advances.

    "Sia has brought the challenging nature of art into the pop world and we are honoured and excited to have her involved," TQX told NME. "This song speaks of the pain of breakup but also… the realization that technology can rob us of relationships, real life and the present moment. The unfolding reality of advancing technology is something that needs to be commented on and so we are using our songs to speak our piece."

    They added: "As an artist famed for questioning attitudes towards image and marketing by singing live with her back to audiences or with her face obscured, Sia was the perfect candidate to participate in the project."
