PC Music signing caro♡ has shared new single 'hide me here' - tune in now.
The French artist is the frontperson for shoegaze-oriented project Planet 1999, who acclaim in 2019 with their debut EP.
New single 'hide me here' finds caro♡ stepping out on her own, and it's dazzling in its opaque minimalism.
Out now, there are traces of Millennial pop in its digital phantasia, with those caro♡ vocals draped in lucid effects.
“I wrote this song about a year ago,” she explains. “For me, it’s about the distance between your ideals and reality, and how it makes you want to escape. When you’re a kid you have all these great expectations about what your life will be like, that you’ll walk on Mars or whatever… but I think that for the vast majority of us, when you get older, modern life can be quite disappointing.”
“I think art is where you find the missing thrill, the mystery and the beauty of it all. I heard a seven year-old kid on the radio the other day who said: Hearing music heals my body. Music is like life. When I listen to music, it feels like my heart was already dead and was being brought back to life.”
Tune in now.
