Caroline Rose - "Freak Like Me"

Photo by Cara Robbins
The true joy of Caroline Rose can be summed up by her newest single, "Freak Like Me." I'll let Rose explain the meaning of the song:

“‘Freak Like Me’ is a S&M-themed love song about falling in love with your dominatrix. The song’s  melody is very floral and beautiful. I imagine it as some sort of delicate dress dancing around 17th century Versailles. I wanted  to juxtapose this daintiness with grotesque lyricsI’ve always wanted to write a pretty song with the word ‘vomit’ in it. Paradoxes are fun.”

"Freak Like Me" could easily be a silly song, or even a novelty song. There's absolutely nothing wrong with either, but Rose's description sounds like it would be hilarious. Turns out "Freak Like Me" is a gorgeous alt-pop song. In fact, despite the subject matter it might very well be her most mainstream sounding song, in the best possible way. 

You can listen to "Freak Like Me" below. Superstar, the upcoming album from Caroline Rose, is due out March 6 on New West Records. You can pre-order the album here. For more on Caroline Rose, check out her website. Current tour dates are below the song.
