PREMIERE: AVICE CARO DEBUTS HER FAIRYTALE FOLK WITH 'HE IS WED, AND SHE IS A MILKMAID'
Amongst the thousands of roses that line the aisles of supermarkets and petrol stations alike, today Avice Caro releases an alternative Valentines Day gift with her video debut: 'HE IS WED, AND SHE IS A MILKMAID'
Avice Caro is the fairytale-folk multimedia solo project that takes the woes and worries of love and spins them through a satirical fantasy lens.
Void of predictable romantic cliche, Caro uses her childhood knowledge of fairytales in order to paint an obscure image of a chicken wanting to one day be "the main woman." She regularly uses abstract characters and fable-like storytelling to touch on society's deepest romantic insecurities.
The video sees the London-based musician, who's styled as a medieval~period drama hybrid, sit comfortably among a luxurious fruit and dairy filled banquet, only to slowly destroy the once perfectly aesthetic set up. Beautifully chaotic yet refined - Caro masters subtle destructiveness, an idea opposite to the soothing melodic vocals that accompany the very spilling of milk and cracking of eggs.
