Charley says WEEK! 2010.23

June 13, 2010

For some people Vanessa Carlton will always be the ‘A Thousand Miles‘ girl, but there’s more to her than driving a piano through the country.

One of my favourite songs of hers is the lead single to her sophomore album ‘Harmonium‘. Actually, ‘White Houses‘ is probably one of my favourite songs in general. Ever.

While the song tells a clear story, the video is simply Vanessa playing the piano while a second Vanessa is dancing in the same room. At first I felt disappointed by it, but then I figured that this leaves you with the freedom to picture your own faces and settings to the words. In a way, it makes the video more specific than any literal interpretation could have ever been.

White Houses‘ is one of those special songs that can make you nostalgic and yet strangely sad at the same time.

It’s beautiful.

Charley says INTERVIEW! Kat DeLuna

June 8, 2010

They say never to meet your heroes, but boy am I glad I did get to talk to Kat DeLuna!

This Dominican born, American raised popstar’s 2008 album ‘9 Lives’ marked the start of the pop/R&B craze that has taken over the charts since. ‘Whine Up‘ and ‘Run The Show‘ were huge and songs like the amazing ‘In The End‘ proved that there was more to the album than just the first two singles.

I got a chance to talk to Kat about ‘Push Push’, the first single from her second album ‘Inside Out’. Kat was brilliant to interview. We ended up having more of a conversation rather than a dry Q&A. Read all about meeting producers over social network sites, sampling songs she’s loved since fifth grade and even covering Celine Dion after the jump!
