You can’t hold yourself back with such a silly label like “introvert” or “extrovert”, if you have the urge to create just create. On our latest visit to the indie world, we are checking out “Chopstix”, the latest single from Caroline Romano. A self-proclaimed “loudest sort of introvert“, at a meager 19 years old Caroline has written her way into the alt-pop movement of this generation. Since dropping her initial single back in 2017, she already has a handful of singles under her belt and has racked up over a million streams online. This single follows her previously released “PDA of the Mainstream”, which marked her transition from indie bedroom pop over to the alternative pop-punk scene. We aren’t the only ones taking notice, as Caroline’s quick rise in the alt-pop world has garnered support from tastemakers like Hollywood Life, American Songwriter, and Just Jared.
“‘Chopstix is kind of that beginning stage of infatuation and heartbreak but it’s also really just a happy song. It’s finding things to reminisce on once it’s all over, and falling for the smallest, most specific things about a person. I write a lot about the aftermath of songs like ‘Chopstix,’ but this song is the prequel to the best and worst of romance. It’s young and clean and feels like childhood summers combined with late-night dinners following a day full of swimming.” – Caroline Romano
While we are always thrilled when an artist expands her boundaries and tries something new to jumble up the formula, taking a step back to embrace the fundamentals once in a while is just as thrilling. Still coming off the high of her debut album Oddities & Prodigies released earlier this year, Caroline is ready to move on to the next chapter of her professional music career. While normally writing about the aftermath of a failed relationship is par for the course for Caroline, she changes the perspective in “Chopstix” to readjust her focus and flex her storytelling methods from a solid foundation. At a mere 20 years old, this singer/songwriter is already tapped in on the pulse of the next generatino, primed and ready to tap into all of their hopes, dreams, and anxieties.
