“I wrote trailer trash 2 years ago when I was in rehab. The song is about accepting the unique and sometimes trashy parts of you. The video was inspired by Bombay beach and the art there, I wanted to create my own world where I could do anything I wanted.”
At just 18 years of age carolesdaughter (Thea Taylor) has already experienced more in her short time on earth than most teenagers. An outsider since birth, she grew up as one of 10 kids in a strict Mormon household. After seeing a tattoo of the iconic logo, she researched Black Flag online and unlocked the worlds of punk, hardcore, and goth. Bouncing between five different high schools, she started doing drugs, falling down a rabbit hole and taking multiple trips to rehab. On the last trip, she made a promise to pursue music upon returning home and ended up making major waves with the single violent.
With a sound that is hard to define, as no two songs are the same, her latest single ‘Trailer Trash’ is a story of accepting the unique and trashy parts of you, the parts also fuelled by addiction, but is told with such an upbeat boppy melody that if you didn’t listen to the dark lyrics you would be none the wiser. The track is paired with a striking music video shot in a deserted area in California and directed by Neta Ben Ezra. It brings to life an abandoned trailer park with Ozark meets The Walking Dead influences. carolesdaughter’s eye-catching look for the video was made possible by makeup artist Jessie Edelstein, with styling by carolesdaughter herself. Trailer Trash marks the up-and-comer’s first official release of 2021.
With over 230 million streams on her single ‘violent’, an album in the works and having just announced that she is opening for Machine Gun Kelly’s tour this coming fall, 2021 is shaping up to be a huge year for carolesdaughter.
