Following the success of CAPPA‘s delightfully infectious single “Tension” – which premiered last month on V Magazine and was added to Spotify’s highly coveted New Music Friday playlist – CAPPA returns today with a vibrant and colorfully drenched music video to perfectly compliment the buoyant and bubbly pop track.
The official music video stars CAPPA herself and was directed and shot by Joe Desantis of Megabyte Films. In an exclusive premiere and interview with Billboard, CAPPA expresses the importance of her new release, “Tension,” calling it “the first step of a new era for me that feels like the music that I’ve been wanting to make. It is nice to just be able to do exactly what I see for my music [but] I am still always figuring that out.”
Over the past few years CAPPA has been making quite a splash with her unique pop sound. Philadelphia-born Carla Cappa – aka CAPPA – started her career in Nashville where she began to cultivate her sound and quickly became one of most sought after pop songwriters in Music City. Seeking a change of scenery, CAPPA has recently moved to LA where she is again making a name for herself with her distinctly catchy yet clever pop writing.
CAPPA broke onto the scene with her self-titled EP in April 2015. Her debut single “Hush” premiered on SPIN who described it as “equal parts Grimes, Max Martin and PC Music.” Later the single was picked up by Victoria Secret for an online ad campaign. CAPPA released her second EP Queen of Hearts, which landed her on Entertainment Weekly’s “Artists Breaking Big”, and was followed by her first US tour. Following a year hiatus, CAPPA returned at the end of 2017 with the pop anthem, “Waste My Time.”
CAPPA has repeatedly been championed by tastemakers such as V Magazine, Glamour, SPIN, Billboard, Noisey, NYLON, & EARMILK and her songs have been synced in ads for Victoria’s Secret, Bumble, Under Armor, Journeys and can be heard on in-store playlists for Urban Outfitters, H&M and Forever 21.
