Rising singer, songwriter and producer carobae (Caroline Baker) has released the official video for her latest single “Colorado.” CLICK HERE to watch! The video (directed by Gus Black) cleverly uses mirrored reflections and projections of the Colorado wilderness to highlight the themes of escape and inner turmoil throughout the song.
“I wrote ‘Colorado’ in my room at a moment when I wanted an escape from everything around me,” said carobae. “The video is meant to be a reflection of that – when all you can think about is running away from your problems.”
The song is from carobae’s recently released debut EP, The Longest Year: Part One. The collection documents the missteps, mayhem and magic of one’s early 20s as well as the irrevocable cultural shift happening in the midst of a global pandemic. It’s an instantly relatable time capsule from the bedroom pop artist who transcends scales over catchy guitar riffs while fostering a unique kind of intimacy through her lyrics. The Longest Year: Part One will be followed by a second installment (coming soon). CLICK HERE to listen to the EP.
“Writing ‘Colorado’ got me through a really tough part of the last year,” said carobae. “I know a lot of people are wanting an escape from the shit show that is 2020, so I hope this song helps a little.”
