video premiere: Sur Back – Trophy Daughter
Jupiter, Florida’s Caroline Sans, aka Sur Back, is set to release her gorgeous debut EP Kitsch next month, and we’re psyched to premiere the video for her exquisite new single. The ambitious and hypnotically woozy “Trophy Daughter” is her loftiest (and best) song yet, with Caroline’s striking vocals warranting all of the inevitable St. Vincent comparisons, and that crucial breakbeat anchoring the track’s eerie, upwardly swirling ethereal pop vibes. Caroline says of her self-directed video for the song:
“Trophy Daughter” was born out of a coming-of-age type narrative, and on the surface, it might seem like just a personal celebration of femininity and aspiration. But I really strove to make a palatable pop song that uses its accessibility to further the idea of a completely inclusive feminine spectrum – one that rebrands the caring, maternal archetype so that women not only celebrate themselves, but use the successes of their personal feminism to nurture social movements that currently have less support.”
Sur Back’s Kitsch EP is out July 1.
