Western Australian artist CarlaGenevepresents a video for “Yesterday’s Clothes,” the lead single from her debut self-titled EP, due tomorrow, June 7th via Dot Dash / Remote Control Records. “Yesterday’s Clothes” explores the guilt that comes with falling out of love, and was written mostly when Carla was on tour. The emotionally-charged video, directed by Matt Sav, shows Carla playing guitar in front of a blue background, in some scenes awashed in dark lighting.
According to Carla, “I wanted the video to reflect the personal nature of the song. To me, sitting alone in front of a camera is a vulnerable situation, a lot like releasing a song to the world which describes private parts of my life. The song is about falling out of love with someone and feeling guilty about it. I wrote it at a time when I was burning the candle at both ends and had no energy left to try to deal with the end of a relationship. Most of the words came when I was doing a long drive back from some gig or another in regional WA. I’d been up all night and had to be somewhere the next day, so I hadn’t had a shower or changed clothes. ”
CarlaGeneve burst onto the West Australian scene in 2017. Her debut single “Greg’s Discount Chemist” was released to overwhelming local radio support including love from triple j. After releasing her second single “Listening” and garnering praise for her showcases at BIGSOUND, the end of 2018 saw her lead with seven nominations at the 2018 WAM Awards where she won Best Single for “Greg’s Discount Chemist” and Best Rock Act. Named one of The West Australian’s Six Brightest Young Stars of 2019, this year will solidify CarlaGeneve as one of Australia’s most exciting up and coming talents.
Carla will be embarking on her first US tour this month, supporting fellow Aussies San Cisco. She will play shows in Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Toronto, Washington DC, Philadelphia, Boston, and New York City. Full dates can be found below.
