Caswell Takes Candid Look at Rebound Sex via “Distraction”

Posted by on May 20, 2020

In her first release of 2020, rising singer/songwriter Caswell takes a bold look into the loneliness that we feel upon becoming newly single. We’ve all been there before and hooked up with the wrong person, and it can really suck. “Think Tove Lo ‘Habits (Stay High)’ but with sex and alcohol” she explains. The downtempo electronic track highlights Caswell’s ability to create music with distinctive rich vocals laced with attractive soul and pop melodies. Questioning why the rebound is such a taboo topic to talk about (let alone write a song about), Caswell says, “I like lyrically exploring thoughts or feelings that everyone has but seldom say aloud. We’ve all been there when we’ve desperately wanted a rebound whilst in the depths of a grievous break-up, in this song I’m directly asking a stranger if I can pretend they’re my ex-partner. Imagining someone other than who you are with is not something people will openly admit, so this song addresses that quite candidly.” Check out “Distraction” by Caswell above now and keep her on your radar.
