This is chapter one. At heart, this album is a wrestling match with one’s self. It’s for anyone feeling so alone or feeling like such an oddity that they will never find a way to be themselves while simultaneously being happy. I have been one of those people, but I’ve learned that oddities and prodigies go hand in hand. This album is for those with impossible plans and lonely minds. I hope you find some of yourself in these songs. I have found all of me in them.

Caroline Romano Releases New Single ‘Ireland In 2009’

Nashville-based singer and songwriter Caroline Romano releases her electrifying new single, “Ireland in 2009.” 

An ode to gritty teenage romance, “Ireland in 2009” is packed with soaring vocals, anthemic production and Caroline’s signature unfiltered lyricism. “It’s a story of falling in love in car parks and waking up in your school clothes,” she says. “It’s about being far too young to know anything at all and the all-or-nothing emotions that come with juvenescence.” Caroline’s knack for storytelling is crystal clear on this song as she croons lyrics that channel the unmistakable nostalgia of young love: “In Ireland in 2009 / With my sundress that you kept like a prize… In the car park listening to blink / He’s got his calvins in the backseat.” 

“I saw the movie Cherrybomb recently, that was made in Belfast, Ireland in 2009, and I thought it would be a lovely place to write this story,” 
Caroline explains of the inspiration that led to writing this song. “I’ve never been to Ireland, and I was only 8 years old in 2009, but I’m obsessed with scenarios I know I’ll never experience. I think we all have our own versions and our own times and places of ‘Ireland in 2009.’ I hope this song reminds you of yours.”

GEN Z Pop-Punk Powerhouse Caroline Romano Releases New Two New Tracks

Alt-pop artist Caroline Romano has shared two new brand tracks, “Oddities and Prodigies” (A-side) and “Lonely Interlude” (B-side). 

Paired together, the two new songs balance tenacity and tenderness. The A-side, “Oddities and Prodigies,” is an electrifying and anthemic pop punk-inspired track. 

“‘Oddities and Prodigies’ is my life motto,” Caroline says. “For me, this song represents the beginning of my story. It’s the first page of the first chapter of this narrative I’m writing. I’ve set out on a quest to spin something beautiful, even if it is often tragic, as I don’t think you can have one without the other.” 

The B-side, “Lonely Interlude,” sees Caroline tapping into a more melancholic side of her musicality, with soft acoustics and tempered vocals. It’s hauntingly sweet, tugging at the heartstrings with lines like, “I’ve been waiting for my whole life / For the day I feel alive / And Eleanor Rigby asked where all the lonely people go / And I think you and I know.”

Caroline Romano has something to say, and millions of people are listening. A self-proclaimed “loudest sort of introvert,” the 20-year-old Nashville-based artist has written and performed her way into the hearts and ears of an anxious generation. With a number of singles already out — including her Billboard-charting R3HAB collaboration, “I Still Remember” — she has quickly racked up millions of streams and support from key tastemakers like Hollywood Life, American Songwriter and Just Jared. 

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, Caroline Romano is a breath of fresh air who is forging a path of her own.

Caroline Romano Releases New Single, ‘The Hypothetical’

Today, alt-pop artist Caroline Romano releases her new single, “The Hypothetical.” Opening with soaring, distorted guitars and energetic percussion, “The Hypothetical” swells into a head-banging, pop-punk number as Caroline’s angsty vocals growl tongue-in-cheek lines like, “Dress you up / You’re my Ken Doll / Because Barbie always makes the call.” 

As the name may suggest, “The Hypothetical” is about a hypothetical romance with that one person you just can’t get out of your head. “I think those can be the most fun romances,” Caroline quips. “I wanted to capture that feeling of being so infatuated with a crush that it’s borderline a state of psychosis. Everything’s sweet and sour all at the same time. It’s nothing serious. It’s Barbie and Ken in wonderland, even if it’s only in your head. It’s just hypothetical.”

“The Hypothetical” comes on the heels of “PDA of the Mainstream,” a single that set the precedent for Caroline’s metamorphosis into a pop-punk powerhouse. With a number of singles already out — including her Billboard charting R3HAB collaboration, “I Still Remember” — she has quickly garnered millions of streams as well as support from key tastemakers like Hollywood Life, American Songwriter, and Just Jared.
