Oakland songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Caitlin Cobb-Vialet creates immediate intimacy in the opening moments of her upcoming debut album Endless Void, arriving via War Chant Records on May 6th, 2022.
Immersed in what she describes as the “busy-ness” of college, performing and composing as part of several productions at once, Cobb-Vialet’s musical theater background and love of the abstract art that she was exposed to in downtown NYC provided the experiences that she had been readied for as a child brought up in a progressive, blended home.
There is a Regina Spektor-type intimacy and honesty that pours out of “Disco Ball”, the new single from Oakland’s Caitlin Cobb-Vialet, that reveals a young artist able to remain composed while being vulnerable. The lyrics and melodic phrases are precise and calculated yet still have a welcoming, off-the-cuff delivery that pulls the listener in as if they are watching the creative process unfold. The song would stand up on its own with just voice and piano, but tastefully placed synths weave in and out, giving the song just enough added texture and ambiance while still maintaining a stripped-down, organic aesthetic.
