“Carolina” by The Natvral

Today The Natvral (Kip Berman, former frontman of The Pains of Being Pure at Heart) shares its sophomore album, Summer of No Light, on Dirty Bingo Records. “Carolina” from the album has also been released as the album’s fourth single:

“Sometimes I come at an idea I’ve written about a while back, but it seems the model has shifted their pose, or the light has changed. “Carolina” is one such song. Its subject is, more or less, the same as “The Tenure Itch.” That older song was fixated on the more prurient elements, and if it seemed a bit arch or judgmental, it’s not exactly covering its eyes either.

But in “Carolina” I want to know “what happens after? Are you alright? Am I?” Maybe my concern still isn’t entirely noble, and that’s fine. But something has changed with what I’m after.”
