Perth artist Carla Geneve has today released her debut self-titled EP via Dot Dash / Remote Control Records.
To celebrate the release, Carla has shared an intimate and emotional video for ‘Yesterday’s Clothes’. Directed by Matt Sav, Carla says of the video – “I wanted the video to reflect the personal nature of the song. To me, sitting alone in front of a camera is a vulnerable situation, a lot like releasing a song to the world which describes private parts of my life. I also think that the simplicity of the video serves the live sound of the track”.
Carla explains the meaning behind the song – “Yesterday’s Clothes is about falling out of love with someone and feeling guilty about it. I wrote it at a time when I was burning the candle at both ends and had no energy left to try to deal with the end of a relationship. Most of the words came when I was doing a long drive back from some gig or another in regional WA. I’d been up all night and had to be somewhere the next day, so I hadn’t had a shower or changed clothes. When you’re on your own driving for hours and hours it’s hard to avoid thinking about stuff that you don’t want to, so I guess I wrote the song to try to come to terms with my thoughts and situation.”
‘Yesterday’s Clothes’ follows single ‘2001’, which debuted at #1 on the AMRAP charts, attained a triple j spot add and saw tastemaker Matt Wilkinson of Beats 1 come out as an early fan, praising her“incredibly powerful voice” on his radio show.
Carla Geneve will embark on her first North American tour next week in support of San Cisco, playing shows in Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Toronto, Washington DC, Philadelphia, Boston, and New York City. She will also headline Berlin, Manhattan on Monday 24th June. Full dates can be found below.
