Did I miss the lastest Quentin Tarantino flick? Is this a cover version of some long forgotten NY Soul Curtis Mayfield tune? Listening the first time to Caramel you will ask yourself those questions. Car Chases through 70s San Fran, Afros, Martial Arts & girls with extremely long legs smoking even longer cigarettes, that's what you hear in this song - an instant classic! The original idea for The Caramel Trilogy came from a dream: make a song with a weird kind of bossanova beat, and call it Caramel. We find that good ideas often come from dreams, so we always act upon them. From that tiny seed, the three songs that comprise the trilogy grew. The songs loosely tell the story of a girl called Caramel. In the first song, Caramel, she is dissolute, aimless, and unlucky in love. The second track, Bamboo, rolling in like a soundtrack to a forgotten 1970s cop show, finds Caramel confronting her abusive boyfriend and liberating herself. Finally, in The Bodhi Tree, the music, along with the lyrics, go spiralling into the mystical as Caramel realises that behind the everyday banality of dysfunctional lives and relationships, there is something mysterious, something deep, and something meaningful about life that is worth fighting for. Obviously this EP had to end with a Hollywood Show Down and a track that leaves nothing to ask for and exactly that is what one of our label's all time favourites, connaiseurs of style and retro modern sound crafters Acid Washed, deliver with a disco killer that would have made John Travolta look even better on the dance floor.
