Rising pop princess Cailin Russo is back with hazy new single “Santa Fe” to add to your playlists for the dog days of summer. The multi-talented singer, model, and actress penned the track along with friends Micah Jasper and Jesse Thomas, with Jasper also acting as producer.
“Santa Fe is a metaphor for authentic romance.”
Haunting vocals echo through layered synths as Russo recounts a doomed new relationship. Russo says about the track: “Santa Fe is a metaphor for authentic romance. The whole song was about a boy I was chasing that gave me just enough to string me along, then would leave me questioning whether anything he said to me was real. I’m naively hopeful the whole time until the last chorus/tempo switch where the ego war kicks in and I confront both sides of my brain saying that ‘This man will always love me’ and ‘this man will never love me’ then tie it up with ‘bitterness is another heartbeat,’ meaning these feelings are fleeting but very intense.”
