New Song of the Week – KAROLINA ROSE: “Greytopia”

Karolina Rose Greytopia

This past February (2019) I featured New York-based singer-songwriter Karolina Rose on this blog, when I reviewed her gorgeous debut EP INVICTA. Born and raised in Philadelphia to Polish parents, Karolina graduated from the prestigious Wharton Business School and had a successful career on Wall Street, which she ultimately left to pursue her dream of making it as a full-time musician. During the past six months, she’s been a very busy woman, playing numerous shows to promote her EP, recording new music, and spending the month of August in Europe, where she attended the Midem music conference in Cannes and performed on TV in her ancestral country of Poland.

Today, she drops a brand new single “Greytopia“, which I’ve chosen as my New Song of the Week. It’s a beautiful, intoxicating track about an idyllic place Karolina has imagined. She explains “It’s a little planet I created where we only support each other and follow our highest path without judgement, swirling emotions included.” The emotions aren’t the only things swirling, as the sweeping glittery synths, throbbing guitar and lively percussive beats dance around Karolina’s sultry vocals. She really has a stunning voice, so silky and vibrant, with the ability to seduce us one moment, then nearly bring us to tears the next with her earnest vulnerability.

The song was written and performed by Karolina, with Simon Kafka on guitar. It was flawlessly produced by Elliot Jacobson, and mixed and mastered by Mike Tuccillo. Together, they’ve all created a stellar track that’s sure to be another hit for this lovely artist.

I came to visit this new land
A fairytale in every way
The internet here only has positive news
Fan girls & boys are lounging, exposing their tattoos

Marble message on the wall
We wash our hair with crushed flowers

‘Cause it’s a greytopia
Sometimes I’m gloomy, sometimes I’m happy
And everything in between
In between you and me
In this greytopia
In this greytopia

Creator made us each this way
Named us the originals, molded us from clay
To do our highest work, masters of our fate
Haters from Earth are waiters
It’s always sunny, the post is run by bunnies

Marble message on the wall
We wash our hair with crushed flowers

‘Cause it’s a greytopia
Sometimes I’m gloomy, sometimes I’m happy
And everything in between
In between you and me
In this greytopia
In this greytopia

Black spades, red hearts,
Black spades, red hearts,
Diamonds, diamonds, diamonds,

‘Cause it’s a greytopia
Sometimes I’m gloomy, sometimes I’m happy
And everything in between
In between you and me
In this greytopia
In this greytopia
