carolesdaughter releases debut EP

carolesdaughter—a.k.a. Thea Taylor—presents her highly awaited debut please put me in a medically induced coma EP

Opening up a world unlike anything else, gold-certified alternative pop artist carolesdaughter presents her highly awaited debut please put me in a medically induced coma EP via Arista Records today. LISTEN HERE

Regarding please put me in a medically induced coma, she added, “This EP feels like my introduction to the world. It’s extremely honest and vulnerable and it almost is like giving up a little piece of me. All these songs I wrote in rehab as a teenager when I was first trying to overcome my addiction, and even if someone can’t relate to the specifics, it’s about coming of age and finding yourself—which everyone has to do at some point.”

She celebrates the project’s arrival with the music video for “Audrey.” Over glitchy acoustic guitar, she paints the picture of a fantasy inspired by a real-life encounter with an exotic dancer. The video brings this vision to life as she laces the truth with a fiction she yearned for. Of the song, Thea commented, “‘Audrey is based on a real dancer I met the first time I went to a strip club. It was kind of like a Cinderella story, and I never saw her again—but I gave her an entire unsolicited life story. The video is based on that real night and maybe what I wish would’ve actually happened.”  

Elsewhere on the EP, she delivers morbidly magnetic anthems such as “Dead Boy (in my room),” which hinges on distorted guitar and an insidiously infectious hook. The finale “Cold Bathroom Floor” pairs her dynamic vocals with gently strummed clean guitar as she confesses, “I don’t want to mess this up.”
