Caitlyn Scarlett - ‘Ornaments’

After releasing her previous EP ‘Red Tape, Vol 1’, London R&B artist Caitlyn Scarlett returns with a brand new track, "Ornaments." The Raf Riley produced track is from the upcoming EP Red Tape, Vol. 2. 

Caitlyn details the track: “Ornaments is about my anxiety and rocky history surrounding relationships and navigating modern society, “People are like ornaments in shops I can’t afford” expresses difficulties I’ve faced with approaching, trusting and understanding others. Produced by Raf Riley who is one of my favourite people to write with, I feel like this song shows a lot of the real me, like reading out my diary. A vulnerable banger...”

She goes on to add: “I thought the video for Ornaments should be simple but striking, with undertones of isolation. I also wanted to shoot on real film because I love instant nostalgia and hazy romantic visuals, so we used 35mm and had colour themes for each location which we coordinated the styling with. From my own experiences with social anxiety I think that one common symptom of a deep underlying need for human connection, is to constantly reject others and pull away from society, as a self defence. I wanted the video to carry that theme metaphorically whilst also being aesthetically pleasing to watch reinterpret as desired.”
