Caroline Kingsbury | Strawberry Sheets (new single)
Los Angeles based alternative pop musician Caroline Kingsbury releases "Strawberry Sheets," the first taste of music from her forthcoming album.
Lush arrangements of steadily-strummed acoustic guitars, rolling percussion and a pulsing beat surround Caroline's gorgeously shimmering vocals and mesmerizing, catchy harmonies. Just a few bars of isolated, rolling percussion introduce the brilliant "Strawberry Sheets" before it bursts to life.
"Strawberry sheets and lover's eyes
A melody that makes you cry
A number you don't recognize
Silver pill on your tongue tonight"
It was just last year that Caroline garnered attention with the release of her impressive debut album, Heaven's Just A Flight, a story of a queer artist from a religious family coming out, finding her people and her place. At the time of the album's release, Caroline commented, "My brother died in this album. I came out in this album. I fell in love and broke up in this album and fell in love again. God there's so much shit I went through for Heaven. But Heaven's all yours now, you can have it. It's just a flight away."
"Strawberry Sheets" was produced by and co-written with Math Bishop. Caroline comments on elements of the song's origin and creative process. "It's been a weird start to the year. I was supposed to be playing some shows surrounding this release but alas Covid changed the plans. I made this to feel happy. I made this repetitive melody to get lost in. Put it on repeat and go for a walk."
And, in case you were wondering, the clothing that Caroline's wearing in the photo shoots is from Animal Crackers Clothing. Check them out!
