Electro-pop darling CAPPA is serving up an infectious new single, “There With You Baby.” The new single is the second tease of a forthcoming EP, following on the heels of her 2020 debut, Change My Mind (ft. Yuppycult),” a collaborative effort with Timeflies member Rob ‘Rez’ Resnick.

At its core, There With You Baby is a delightful, feel-good pop track. Explaining the concept behind the track, CAPPA writes, “I wanted the song to capture that beginning feeling in a relationship when you feel like anything could happen and maybe love isn’t all that bad.” Combining a dance floor ready beat with superbly catchy lyricism and CAPPA’s signature hypnotic vocals, “There With You Baby” perfectly captures the giddy feeling of falling in love.

CAPPA, aka Carla Cappa, has a knack for crafting carefree yet clever electro-pop tracks. Since her 2015 breakout, Hush,” which premiered on SPIN and was later featured in a Victoria Secret ad, CAPPA has continued to pump out a bevy of delightful pop singles. Her music has been championed by key tastemakers like NYLON, Glamour, Entertainment Weekly and Billboard, and has also been featured in hit TV shows like Riverdale, Alone Together, Girlfriend’s Guide To Divorce, and The Bold Type, just to name a few.

Originally hailing from Philadelphia, CAPPA first landed in Nashville and quickly became synonymous with the pop music scene there. After moving to Los Angeles a few years back, CAPPA has established herself as a go-to songwriter and has featured on tracks for major electronic artists like SNBRN, TELYKast, and Justin Caruso. In 2019 her sought-after vocals led her to create an exclusive vocal pack for SPLICE. After taking the past year to arm herself with an arsenal of new original pop gems, CAPPA is now gearing up to release a new EP in early Summer 2020.

 

1. Okay, we want to know everything about “There With Baby”! What was the inspiration behind it?

It’s about the feeling of knowing someone is bad for you but going for it anyway. I think that with every relationship you know if someone is going to end up being good for you or not, and this song is about going for the relationship regardless.

 

2. We are in love with your style! What/who are your 

Thank you! I grew up loving Gwen Stefani so I’ve definitely pulled a lot of inspiration from her over the years. I love that she’s a punk rock but still classy.

 

3. “Change My Mind” has such a cool vibe. What is it about?I definitely wanted “Change My Mind” to be a feel-good, windows down sort of vibe. It’s about dating someone and never knowing if you’re on the same page. Relationships are fickle and I write about that a lot in music.

 

4. Can you tell us about the single’s artwork?
I’ve been going for a sort of “homemade” look for my artwork lately. I’ve been tired of just using my face on artwork and I wanted to experiment!

 

5. If you could work with any artist, who would it be?
Pharrell Williams! I think he’s a genius and I love his vision.

 

6. Can. you tell us about any upcoming projects?
I am currently working on putting out an EP! “Change My Mind” and “There With You Baby” are the first two singles from the EP. I’m really excited for everyone to hear the rest of the tracks!
