UK-native, folk-pop artist, Mabes released her wistfully groovy music video for her newest love inspired lockdown single, “Caught Up.”
The up-and-coming singer’s self-described sound is “honest” with “a country twang influenced by pop.” Mabes’ music is a blend of timeless Nashville-soul married with electric-currents of fresh pop. “Caught Up” will be featured on Mabes’ upcoming EP, along with her 2020 tracks, “Too Young to Love” and “Danny.” “Caught Up” follows in the footsteps of her successful freshman 2019 album Wait & See. We will have to wait and see what other tracks Mabes’ EP offers; until then, we can enjoy “Caught Up” and its retro music video.
Mabes describes the music video best:
‘”Caught Up’ was inspired by lovers that were unable to see each other throughout lockdown. FaceTime and Zoom is great, but when you love and miss somebody, seeing them on a screen just isn’t the same as holding their hand or laying your head down on them. ‘Caught Up’ is about longing to be held and getting lost in the moment with that special person, to make all the worries and darkness fade away.” She continues, ‘The video was inspired by my love of Bobbie Gentry and 1960s and ‘70s tv shows. Re-creating this with director Elle Lotherington was a challenge but creating characters is something I love doing!”
The video will make you nostalgic for not only the glamour of the 1960s but pre-Covid times.
