Caitlyn Scarlett captures that nostalgic vibe of an all-fun, no-pressure summer weekend with her new single, “South Suburban Weekend”

Already drawing comparisons to Lorde and Kate Bush after sharing just two songs, TallerandHow High?’, Caitlyn Scarlett (aka Rubberband Girl) is now set for her first wider wave of discovery as she shares her debut single ‘South Suburban Weekend’(listen below).

“South Suburban Weekend” exudes a heartwarming soulful sound with beautifully ornate phrasing. Caitlyn’s vocals feel intimate enough to give you the impression that you already know her while the music is a combination of sun-soaked groove pop flourishes. The track combines indie-pop, acid jazz and trip-hop which makes her a bit of a chameleon when you are trying to pin her down to one genre. The lyrics for “South Suburban Weekend” capture a sort of nostalgic, laidback vibe of an all-fun no-pressure summer weekend in your late teens — a time when the possibilities of life feel endless. 

“‘South Suburban Weekend’ was the first Rubberband Girl song ever written” admits Caitlyn when talking about the new single. “It’s a love letter to my youth, growing up in a typically English riverside town with ambitions of escaping to ‘big city life’. Having since lived over a decade in London, I now look back with great nostalgia at how and where my friends and I spent our teenage years; hanging around those local parks and high streets, drinking, skating, causing trouble and waiting for our lives to really begin. ‘South Suburban Weekend’ is my way of capturing and celebrating the romance and simplicity of that time.”
