Catching Cairo Unveils New Visuals To Ethereal Track ‘When It’s Over’

North London based newcomer Catching Cairo, unveils the stunningly ethereal visuals for title track ‘When It’s Over‘ part of her highly anticipated debut EP. 

‘When It’s Over’ explores the exciting and daunting reality of a relationship. The nervous energy one might feel when stuck at a crossroads, a burning desire for something wonderful to blossom. Produced by the innovative duo Poorhouse, they contrast drowning basslines with Cairo’s homegrown lullaby vocals. Recurring throughout the nostalgic video, we see Cairo lying with a partner completely immersed in one another and the moment together; a beautiful representation of closeness and a longing for that something or someone special.

Opening up on the creation behind the track, Cairo says: “When It’s Over’ is the last song I wrote on the EP. I’d been challenging myself to write more to keep my brain in check, so I’d been journaling pretty much everyday in some shape or form. There’s no one way to interpret the song, when I listen to it now I feel nostalgic for how I felt when I wrote it and how I wanted to feel. At the time I felt like I was compressed with a person I loved, but it sometimes felt like I couldn’t love them properly because we were forced into each others space and that was hard. In it’s sweetness it the track portrays a picture of desire and loneliness in my mind.” 

Blending genres, the emerging songstress’s five track EP combines Cairo’s love for reggae, psychedelic soul, contemporary R&B and 60’s influenced harmonies as she explores how vary genres play a role in the moods of each track. 

With over 165k monthly Spotify listeners, the rising talent angelic tones have led to remixes and collaborations with the likes of BCee, Mungo’s Hi Fi, Hybrid Minds and more. Now carving a lane of her own, the release of ‘When It’s Over’ is set to position her as a hotly tipped one to watch for 2022.
