Caroline Romano Presents Stunning New Video For The Single 'Dizzy' From Her Debut Album
Caroline Romano presents a stunning new video for the single “Dizzy,” from her new album, Oddities and Prodigies.
Inspired by the lyric “all I see are bodies without faces,” the Justin Key-directed music video takes place in a surrealist wonderland. With swirling, hyperactive camera angles, iridescent backdrops, and pops of neon against dark hues, viewers are taken on a hypnotizing yet unsettling joyride. “I wanted the video to feel like a melted world of art,” Caroline explains. “I truly can only draw the human figure without a face, so the video sort of likens that line to modern day interactions — there are all these people around but we don’t really know them.”
At just 20-years-old, Caroline Romano has written and performed into the hearts and ears of an anxious generation. She’s accrued millions of streams across her repertoire and has captured the attention of key tastemakers like Hollywood Life, Just Jared, EUPHORIA and American Songwriter. Her songwriting abilities showcase her witty, introspective and hopeful take on modernity, romanticism and the highs and lows of being young in today’s world.
Caroline released her debut album, Oddities and Prodigies, on February 25th. From misty-eyed ballads to fiery pop-punk anthems, the album is a vivid snapshot of Caroline’s personal and musical journey — “this album is everything I know in 16 songs,” she says.
Caroline Romano has something to say to say, and millions of people are listening. A self-proclaimed “loudest sort of introvert,” Romano has written and performed her way into the hearts and ears of an anxious generation. In 2016, Romano made noise of the sweetest sort with her debut single "Masterpiece," a collaboration with Jacob Whitesides released at the tender age of 15. Romano found success on the radio waves shortly after "Masterpiece" with her second release "Ready”, the aptly titled single where Romano boldly declares the start of her musical journey.
People in the music industry took notice of Romano when "Ready" quickly earned the number 3 spot on Radio Disney’s Top 30 Chart. Since the release of "Ready," Romano continued to write, record, and perform a catalog of music that reflects the deepening emotions and maturity that come with growing up in the modern age.
Romano's biggest hit to date occurred in 2020, with the release of her single “I Still Remember (ft. R3HAB)." A global hit, "I Still Remember (ft. R3HAB) placed Romano in the top 15 on Billboard’s Dance chart. A paradox on many levels, Romano continues to put out music that is both brave and optimistic during times that she admits are all too often frightening and lovely at once. Like her single by the same name, Romano is unafraid to be a "Jagged Star" in a world that seems to demand perfection from its youth.
Wise beyond her years, Caroline’s songwriting abilities showcase her witty, introspective, and hopeful take on modernity, romanticism, and the highs and lows of being young in today’s world. A unique and passionate force in the music world, Romano is a breath of fresh air who is forging a path of her own industry.
