“The magma in you, the magma in me.

And our magnificent capacity for renewal”

“Dreamers for Elisa” is a burst of sensual electronica, self-produced on a laptop by your truly, once described by the BBC as “one-woman electronic avalanche.” The perfect post lockdown spring anthem, it is charged with life force, fuelled by a passionate and playful fire in the belly, that divine spark that won’t let you give up despite what life throws at you. After absorbing this detailed and lovingly crafted piece, I hope you will feel renewed and invincible, ready to shine in this crazy wonderful world.

“It’s about how as humans we have the capacity to change everyday. To evolve, let go of the past and co-create our future. It’s about tapping into your power to both survive and thrive. Then you can build on that resource and become more resilient, whatever life throws at you. It’s for dancing like nobody’s watching, until we can hopefully dance together again soon. It’s about the raw power that’s in nature and therefore in us.”

The origin story of this track

“Dreamers for Elisa” started life as the glowing finale to commissioned new music for a dance and light show called “Dreamers” by fellow Manchester based artist Elisa Artesero. The title is also a play on words as Beethoven’s “Fuer Elise” is probably the only piece of the traditional Western classical repertoire that this largely self-taught musician can actually play smoothly. Humour is an important part of this sonic adventurer’s self-expression.

Back to my electronica roots

Caro is going back to her electronica roots here after 20 years of honing her craft. Bringing in sound design and adventurous song structures as she weaves an immersive sound world for her listeners to bathe in, “Dreamers for Elisa” is intended as nourishment for the head, heart and haunches. With its sweeping synth pads, swooping synthetic melodies and intimate vocals anchored in deep yet ultimately triumphant beats, it oozes the influence and inspiration of her experimental electronica lineage, with nods to Aphex Twin, Autechre and Bjork.

Found sounds and unusual instruments

“Dreamers for Elisa” features a sampled lithophone – like a xylophone but made of slate. This is real rock music! Covid might have taken this lass from the mountains, but you can’t take the mountains out the Caro because I brought them into the studio. Found sounds include jangling oven shelves as hi-hats, a tin can shaker and a giant water cooler bottle as a deep funky drum.

We endeavour together

I may be a solo artist but “Dreamers for Elisa” shows my work is a rich collective endeavour, even in these more isolated times. The video has been created by Maria Rubans, the fire pixie dress by Alison Hamilton, hair and makeup by Nikki Armstrong and stunning photos by Shirlaine Forrest. Then there’s the rocking remixes to enjoy, which have been created by members of my marvellous international community of artists.

Electric Mountain album

“Dreamers for Elisa” is the first single from “Electric Mountain”, the fourth album by this “sonic enchantress” (Max Reinhardt, Radio 3) out on Friday 4 June. This self-produced 12 track adventurous electronica collection is supported by Help Musicians’ Do It Differently Fund, encouraging validation for a largely self-taught independent artist. Caro has designated 20% of all Bandcamp sales to go to UK music charities Help Musicians and We Make Events, in solidarity to her sector’s hardworking people whose livelihoods have been severely affected by the pandemic.
