Alt-pop darling Caroline Romano is back today with her new single, “Guts.” Following “Fighting A War,” her recent pop-R&B collaboration with Julian Rose, “Guts” sees Caroline returning to her indie-rock roots. On “Guts,” her distinctive voice glows amidst a whirlwind of glittering guitar and frenzied percussion.
Caroline elaborates on what inspired the new single: “I’ve always had this thing in social settings — especially at house parties, bars, or really anywhere with pretty strangers — where I feel like people can see right through me, like I’m completely transparent. So, in some terrible attempt at compensation, I’ll say too much or drink too much. I end up spilling my guts to people as a form of free therapy, or self-sabotage, I’m not sure which it is. And then I watch them watch me dig myself further, with my guts on the floor in front of them. That’s how I end things before they’ve even started, and that’s what this song is about. It’s frantic and eager and frustrated all at the same time.”
At just 21-years-old, Nashville-based singer and songwriter Caroline Romano has already accrued millions of streams across her repertoire. Her songs showcase her witty, introspective and hopeful take on modernity, romanticism and the highs and lows of being young in today’s world. In 2022 Caroline shared her debut album, Oddities and Prodigies, and has continued to capture the attention of fans and tastemakers with follow up singles like “Chopstix” and “Me After September.”
