cavetown has also revealed the details of the ‘This Is Home Project’ with the intention of supporting and empowering LGBTQ+ youth causes and initiatives.
Two weeks away from releasing their new album ‘worm food’, cavetown has shared a new track from it.
And it is so lovely.
It’s called ‘frog’ and is an atmospheric and romantic piece of cutesy songwriting that shows off all the things that makes Robin so wonderful. Utilising fascinating instruments and matching it with heart-fluttering poetry, it’s a beauty.
He had this to say about the song:
“‘frog’ is about my girlfriend! We were both too shy to ask each other to be boyfriend and girlfriend, so one day I showed her a frog meme that said, ‘GF stands for girl-frog and BF stands for boy-frog’ and I said, ‘that’s us!’ She makes me feel better when I’m too inside my head and helps me remember to be present with the ones I care about.
The frog synth is a combo of Logic synths that I mixed together and was really fun to create. Similar to ‘1994’, I thought about how the synth sounds would translate live and how people could hop around during the frog solo. I used to play a melodica at shows, which would have had a similar effect as the frog synth, but then we’d have to retune the entire set, so the melodica was retired for now.”
And here is the absolutely beautiful video:
‘worm food’ will be released on November 04 via Sire Records.
It will also feature ‘1994’:
Robin has also launched the ‘This is Home Project’, a new initiative that is aiming to donate a minimum of $1 million over the next three years to benefit, support, and empower LGBTQ+ youth causes and initiatives.
The first five organisations the money will benefit are Black LGBTQIA+ Migrant Project (BLMP), True Colors United, Trans Lifeline, Black Trans Femmes in the Arts, and Stonewall.
Here’s what he had to say about it:
“I’m so excited to finally share this with u!!! For the past year, I’ve been working on something special called the This Is Home Project. I wanted to create a way to better support young LGBTQ+ people who are in need of financial help and resources, both on an individual and community-wide scale. I’m also aiming to bring more funding to foundations whose sole focus is providing access to LGBTQ+ youth for physical and mental healthcare, safe housing, and a whole bunch more. u can learn lots more at tihp.cave.town!!!”
