A GIRL I KNOW
TWO BIRDS RECORDS / KOBALT
March 3, 2016
A Girl I Know is a 60’s inspired pop band fronted by singer-songwriter/actor Carolina Hoyos. As an actor, Carolina is often typecast as the musician and/or homeless streetwise girl, often featuring her own music and weathered clothing from her life on the road. But this type of casting is rooted in some truth, as she has certainly paid her dues. Over the years, she has shared the stage with Eddie Van Halen, Ryan Adams, and members of Guns N’ Roses. With her new single, “The Sun,” she strikes right at the heart of pop, folk, even doo-wop songwriting gold. With such a mix and glowing disposition, it’s only appropriate that her new video is unabashedly vibrant!
Her diverse skill set and comfort in front of the camera has landed her starring roles in the Jason Brown Lewis sitcom pilot “The Gym” alongside Quinton Aaron of “The Blind Side” and Native American LGBT family drama “Polar Sun” by Katie Doane Avery. She’s also made cameos on “Gene Simmons: Family Jewels” and Pharrell Williams’s music video for Oscar-Nominated song “Happy” from “Despicable Me 2”.
This seamless balance of music and acting has paid off for A Girl I Know as well. Her song “I’ll Find the Time” is featured in the film “Bruising For Besos” and hip-hop collaboration “The Difference” with Mr Ra and DJ Caspr is featured alongside Justin Timberlake and 50 Cent on the Zoo York E.S.T. 4.0 skate video soundtrack. Another single, “Bang Bang Bang”, features Jeremiah Bitsui who played Victor in the groundbreaking series “Breaking Bad”. Today, however, we want to turn all your attention to her delightful new single for “The Sun” and the brilliant bits of musical and theatrical nuance it displays.
“The Sun” is the perfect positive video for any day! With an endearing mix of choreography, pastel colors, perfectly manicured yards, and carefully added animations over top, everything about this video is as bright and vibrant as its namesake. Come to think of it, it may even be a little too perfect! Just ask the gorilla (well, more like the man in the gorilla suit) sprinting in and out frame, vying in vein for Carolina’s attention. It’s tough being on the outside looking in on someone else’s happiness, but we can all rest easy that Carolina has more than enough charm and happiness to go around and she’s sure to put a genuine smile on everyone’s face.
