Colin Caulfield’s music is a balancing act between crystalline curveball pop and whip-smart self-parody. Nowhere is that more evident than in the music video for his latest single, “Looking For Revenge.” Watch here
A message from Colin:
“My name is Colin Caulfield and I’m a musician/singer living in L.A. You may know me from DIIV because I’ve been in that band since 2013, which is sick. Soon, I hope you will know me for the music I make under my name too. My songs are some sort of combination of early 2000s pop, upbeat soul, cynicism and legitimate sincerity. I write about love, regret, assholes, communication breakdowns, my family, apathy, daily routines, and maintaining optimism in the face of unending contemporary bullshit.
My new single “Looking for Revenge” (please enjoy) is about almost all of those things. I wrote it after spending days and days online in a 2016 post-election hell hole of confusion. People were so angry with each other and I was struck by how similar it felt to the end of a relationship. Everybody was asking for too much and giving too little.
The accompanying video is directly inspired by an especially twisted episode of My Strange Addiction, in which a man has a loving and sexual relationship with his car. In the video, my character’s romance with another man’s truck flashes before his eyes – beautiful, dramatic, and tender! But sometimes love is best lost, even if it means you lose it to another.”
