"Floating deep in your eyes, that's where you'll find me..."

UK Based, South African singer-songwriter Cara Frew releases the video for her track ‘Weightless’ today. The song which was recently synced to ABC's hit US TV show Pretty Little Liars is a mix of gritty pop vocals with the perfect infusion of down-tempo melody and an effortless instrumental base that gives us a feeling that soars. Weightless delivers a whimsical, transporting slice of sound to get us through the winter months.

"With Amy Winehouse and Lana del Rey as a couple of my favourite artists, I was beyond excited to write 'Weightless' while in Los Angeles with Stefan Skarbek, who worked closely with Amy up until the end and have it produced by Daniel Heath who composed most of Lana’s 'Born to Die' album." Exclaims Cara.

Along with the rest of the world, Cara has been longing for connection for a year unlike any other. With Daniel Heath's cinematic production approach, Weightless transports us to that floating feeling of elevated love, the beauty of mixed emotions gone wild, an absorbing lust in a chaotic world, and the comfort we find in each other despite how imperfect we know our love is. It's the perfect escape.

Constant growth and evolution are an integral part of my life and I have used this uncertain time to focus my emotions into creativity. I cannot wait to share my music with you and follow it up with an EP that will be released later this year.”

SA talent Ross Hillier shot the video in the Newlands Forest in Cape Town on a misty and magical day with sunlight creeping through the tree canopies and water as cold as ice. “I am lucky I did not freeze to death! We were going for a whimsical, floaty feeling as the story of elevated lust unfolded.” She laughs.

About Cara Frew

Coachella Music Festival performing artist Cara Frew is a South African born singer-songwriter whose music is wrapped in pop vocals and an earthy feel, with organic elements that are driven by acoustic guitar and African drums. Cara’s debut album, Flame, was released through Sony Music Entertainment worldwide, with her hit single, 'Free', nominated for a SAMA, her collaboration with American DJ SNBRN, 'You Got Me', reaching over ten million plays on Spotify & Soundcloud and album spiking interest as she opened for internationally acclaimed UK band The Script on the South African leg of their world tour. On home soil, Cara joined forces with one of Africa’s biggest exports, world-renowned DJ and music producer - Black Coffee. 'I’ll Find You' was the first release of Black Coffee’s 2015 album. The collaboration afforded Cara the opportunity to perform at Ultra Music Festival Miami, Ultra Music Festival South Africa, and Sónar Johannesburg. Cara studied at Berklee College of Music and has had recent sync placements on ABC hit series Pretty Little Liars and Vanderpump Rules. She has completed a Production Course at the Scratch Academy in Los Angeles, received a Master Certificate for a vocal performance, piano, production, songwriting and music theory at the Malie Kelly Vocal Academy in South Africa and went on to further her knowledge at the Song Writing School of Los Angeles, where she gained first-hand experience in songwriting and studio production. Having worked in LA it wasn’t long before Cara had the opportunity to write and record with musical greats such as Lauren Christy and Andre Lindal, the creative duo behind Kelly Clarkson’s Grammy-Award winning 'Stronger'. Listing Amy Winehouse and Lana Del Rey as some of her favourite artists, it was a dream come true to record her first four-track EP 'Come Close to Me' with Daniel Heath who was responsible for Del Rey’s 'Blue jeans' and 'Young and Beautiful.' All four tracks were co-written with Stefan Skarbek who worked closely with Amy Winehouse. Cara is no stranger to the international scene. She headlined the live stage at Ultra Music Festival in Singapore, performed throughout Toronto at Canadian Music Week, and sold-out shows in Los Angeles at Soho House. Cara also took the stage at Johnny Depp’s iconic Viper Room, a nightclub located on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood.

There is more to this artist than what meets the eye.
