Raised On TV – Caroline
Raised On TV presenting the official music video for, ‘Caroline’
Raised On TV started the place each rock band ought to: within the storage. In 2015, brothers Keaton Rogers and Kacey Greenwood began banging out melodic, fuzzed-out tunes with highschool buddy Ryan Weiss. They quickly realized that they had some severely good songs, so it was time to get severe. One EP, one full-length, and various DIY excursions later, they’re able to launch the Season 2 LP.
The first single, “Caroline,” is a driving, distorted name to by no means lose sight of the particular issues proper in entrance of your face and by no means let the vital issues in life lose focus. Its unfastened but locked-in verses recall the perfect of Teenage Fanclub and carry off right into a rock-solid energy pop refrain that’ll bounce round your headspace and take its personal candy time to depart. The guys knew that they had a gem on their fingers once they emerged from the aforementioned storage to seek out Ryan’s mother buzzing the song- and that’s a tricky viewers.
The band knew they wanted to up their manufacturing recreation for Season 2, in order that they reached out to Grammy-nominated engineer Mark Needham. He’s produced tracks for Fleetwood Mac, Imagine Dragons and Bloc Party, and is the man who blended the Killers’ double-platinum “Mr. Brightside” in 40 minutes. He preferred what he heard and introduced them into Hollywood’s Elephant In The Room studio.
Keaton and Kacey’s actress sister, Victoria Greenwood, directed the video alongside Keaton. Here Raised on TV performs in entrance of surreal Technicolor projections for some traditional 60’s psychedelic visuals. Throughout the clip, the fellows discover themselves in black-and-white, decidedly much less dreamy conditions – instructing college, working at a music retailer, doing the chores. We all want fantasy, however we’ve got to do not forget that daily remains to be extraordinary.
It was a Green Day / Blink 182 present that satisfied Keaton and Kacey to make the bounce from performing in commercials and getting bit components in motion pictures to writing and rocking Three-minute bursts of high-energy pop. You can hear some Blink and Green Day in there, alongside some Weezer and, dare we are saying, a little bit of the Beatles, however Keaton’s voice and melodies are distinctly his personal.
