“Runaway Angels” is the first single of 2020 from the US-Polish alt-pop artist, serving as the third instalment of her upcoming visual EP Rosemary. Written in support of sexual assault survivors, it took several years for Karolina to feel prepared to release “Runaway Angels” since the topic of the song hit close to home. The video was filmed in a Croatian villa that Rose swears was haunted, which inspired a scene with an apparition.
Channelling darker, more introspective energy when compared to her two well-received prior singles – the glittery upbeat rhythms of “Greytopia” and the dusky grooves in “Objection” – “Runaway Angels” is the latest of Karolina’s versatile brand of ‘noir rose pop’: alluring, seductive and layered – but with a prick of danger.
With layered, indulgent production created by Elliot Jacobson (Allie X / VÉRITÉ / Elle King), the quickly-rising indie singer’s compelling track intends to inspire listeners in an empowering way while on their own journeys of healing and finding love. As with all of Karolina’s music, “Runaway Angels” was born from a deeply personal place of experience and perspective from the nomadic artist, who is split between NYC, LA and Europe.
“Runaway Angels” is step three in Karolina’s visual EP project coming later this summer, which will witness the independent artist tell a tale of love, loss and healing through four spectacular video experiences.
