Ask Carol have released the animated lyric video for their new single “Do It in LA.“
The band gave some insight into the new track:
In April this year, we, Ask Carol, finally got set up for a meeting with some big shot management in LA, which we had been working towards for a long time. We were supposed to fly in around the middle of April, but we all know what happened… So, with all travels out of the question, we were stuck in the middle of nowhere, with internet-speeds from the 90s. “What do we do now?” we thought.
In need of a distraction from our frustrations, we made this song, “Do It in LA”. Half satirical comedy about the shallow, plastic fantastic society, half an honest testimony to us dreaming ourselves away to sunny Californ-i-a, and LA. Everyone has an opinion about the celebrity scene, but who hasn’t dreamt of being a Hollywood star?
A contrast to our often more melancholic music, we needed some feelgood music in our not so cheerful times. This is what we ended up with. A feelgood, rockin Alt-pop tune about making it big in LA. Badass female vocals, lots of energy and a stubborn punk attitude. As if Blondie had a kid with Paramore… Satirical lyrics of a shallow, plastic fantastic society, but really, it’s just us dreaming ourselves away to sunny California in these crazy times.
