Singer/songwriter and producer Cavetown, also known as Robin Skinner, has released the video for his new single, “Grocery Store” today via Sire Records. The summery new single finds Robin touching on on hiding in plain sight while using the grocery store as his backdrop. After writing the song, Robin initially tucked it away before sharing it with Kina Beats who put his own spin on it. Listen to it now below.
On the process behind the new single, Robin shares, “’Grocery Store’ took a few different forms before landing where it is now. The lyrics started to come together when I was struggling with my mental health and had to go to the shop to pick up a few things. It’s always so difficult being in a public space when you’re feeling really awful. At first, I wasn’t super inspired by what I was writing until I worked with Kina Beats. That version of the song helped me feel inspired again, so I picked the idea back up and created “Grocery Store.”
Following his tour date with Bleachers at the legendary Kia Forum in Los Angeles, CA last month, Cavetown will return to the road for a headlining EU/UK tour this Fall. The highly-anticipated run includes a sold-out show at the Eventim Apollo in London on November 5th. All dates can be found HERE.
