The new “Take It” sound of 23-year-old Brooklyn-based singer and songwriter Caroline Lazar was released on April 24! This indie artist, often compared to Phoebe Bridgers, Julia Jacklin and Jay Som, approaches folk music with brutal honesty and a unique dark sense of humour with themes such as nostalgia, letting go and moving forward.
Caroline’s sounds grew and evolved along with her. Her first EP, Nevermine, was released in 2017 when she was in college and is full of unrealistic metaphors and drama. Her second EP Honey, released in 2019, is more authentic, simple and raw. She has been acclaimed by major blogs such as Earmilk, Line of Best Fit and Honey Punch.
Today she lives in her little apartment with her cat in Brooklyn. Her latest single “Roller Rink” was made in Brooklyn. It was co-written and produced by Jack Mullin.
Her single “Take It” is about a long-distance love relationship, which Caroline Lazar herself has experienced. It was written at a time when the artist felt happy and lucky to have found love, and at the same time sad, lonely and unlucky that this person was so far away. In this song, you can hear acoustic guitars and mandolin accompanying his voice.
