British singer-songwriter, Arlo Parks’ latest single, “Caroline” just dropped with a paired lyric video, and to put it plainly, it’s like a breath of fresh air for your ears.

A break from her usual R&B-jazz-like vibe, “Caroline” steps into the realm of a more traditional singer-songwriter sound — borderline folk. Parks’ gentle, warm, ethereal vocals laying on top of guitar strums that sound nearly borrowed from ’90s alternative rock, are beyond dreamy and nostalgic.

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I was waiting for the bus one day
Watched a fight between an artsy couple escalate
Strawberry cheeks flushed with defeated rage
Then he spilled his coffee as he frantically explained

[Verse 2]
Maybe if you took a breath
You would hear me when I talk to you
Threw her necklace in his face
Eyes so bright with disappointment
I saw something inside her break
Everybody knows the feeling
Suddenly he started screaming

[Chorus]
“Caroline, I swear to God I tried
I swear to God I tried
Caroline, I swear to God I tried
I swear to God I tried
I swear to God I tried, I swear to God I tried”

[Verse 3]
Ripped the hem of her skirt as she ran
Panicking and weaving through the crowds on Oxford Street
Watched his world dissolve in his hands
Tried to roll a blem then put his head between his knees, ooh

[Verse 4]
Maybe if she took a breath
She would know I did it all for her
Agony and hints of sage
Her eyes blind with disappointment
I couldn’t recognize her face
Shards of glass live in this feeling
Have to somehow stop her leaving

[Chorus]
“Caroline, I swear to God I tried
I swear to God I tried
Caroline, I swear to God I tried
I swear to God I tried
Caroline, I swear to God I tried
I swear to God I tried
Caroline, I swear to God I tried
I swear to God I tried
I swear to God I tried, I swear to God I tried”
