TVD Video Premiere: CAFOLLA, “1985”

We’ve said it once and we’ll say it again, there must be something in the air up in Scotland because the talent coming out that tiny country right now is palpable! Our latest discovery is indie-electro artist CAFOLLA and we’re pleased to announce we’re premiering the brand new single and video for “1985” right here at TVD.

If you didn’t guess by the name, “1985” is brimming in all things ’80s—from the synth-infused soundscapes, to the political lyricism, right through to the VHS-inspired visuals in the video, “1985” is a powerful time machine that deserves your attention. The distinctively soulful vocals remind us of a cross between Jamiroquai, Prince, and even Michael Jackson in parts—and we can’t get enough.

It’s an undeniably addictive debut with an important message that we should all take note of. Talking about the single and video, CAFOLLA elaborates, ““1985” is a blaring commentary on consumerism, greed, and a reminder of what it has led to. It asks the question, “Have we truly grown from this over indulgence or is it as rife as ever?” Some serious food for thought there folks.

Check out the vintage-inspired visuals above, created by videographer Danny McCormick and produced by McCormick, Gordon Beveridge, and CAFOLLA.

“1985” arrives in stores on 22nd August 2019 via Dusty Reel Records.
