Swedish pop singer and songwriter Caroline Duke is one of the most exciting up and coming names.
With ambient raw-like vocals with a resemblence of Lana Del Rey she has created quite a profile for herself. This is our interview with her.
Hi, how are you?
I’m very good thanks! Happy it’s almost summer.
So, when did you decide to go into music making?
I’ve been writing music since I was eight years old, and I’ve written hundreds of songs since then. However it wasn’t until 3 years ago I actually had the courage to pursue it professionally. I came to a point where I decided that I don’t care anymore, I just want to get my music out there, regardless if it will be well received or not.
Who/what influences you to make music?
I’ve always loved making up stories, so I probably started writing songs for that reason. I mostly listen to metal like Rammstein and Tool so maybe that’s why my music has morphed into this dark pop genre. I find inspiration in so many things. I can write a song based on a word that I’ve read or a movie I’ve seen or inspiration from my own life.
If you could collaborate with any artist who would it be?
Trent Reznor without any hesitation. He’s a musical genius if you ask me, and a huge inspiration.
Describe yourself in one word.
Hmm that’s a tough one. But one of the words that come to mind is dedicated.
Describe your music in one word.
What are your goals for the rest of 2017?
I’m planning on making a music video this summer. I’m also planning on recording a sophomore EP that I will hopefully release in the beginning of 2018. The overall goal is just to get my music heard!
What is your definition of culture?
Culture is what makes us human. Culture is life. Interaction. It is really what makes this world such a fascinating place and makes life bearable.
