There is a sense of longing and idealization in Great Mountain Fire’s “Caroline,” where the quintet pay homage to the androgynous character Caroline. According to the band, ‘Caroline’ is a famous, allegorical figure of the streets of Brussels. “A man dressed as a woman, amusing and at the same time intimidating by their strange freedom, a kind of a new wave Cleopatra, of which we only knew the name, transmitted by word of mouth, and which we often saw wandering when we were teenagers, but who seems to have disappeared overnight.” Check out the Paul Thoreau-directed video below:

“Caroline” is from the quintet’s upcoming LP Movements, which will be out later this year.
