Cavetown Releases New Song “frog”
- British singer-songwriter Robin Skinner, aka Cavetown released a new song “frog” on October 19, 2022.
The song is the third single off of his upcoming major label second studio album “Worm Food”, following “Fall in Love with a Girl” featuring Beabadoobee and “1994”.
It was written and produced by Robin Skinner. The accompanying music video was directed by Robin Skinner.
Robin Skinner said of 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.”
He continued, “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.”
The new album is set to be released on November 4, 2022.
- Alongside the new song, Cavetown has also announced the formation of the This Is Home Project.
The foundation’s aim is to donate to various organizations to empower and support LGBTQ+ youth.
Over the next three years, This Is Home Project will donate a minimum of $1 million.
Robin Skinner said, “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!!!”
