Her latest single “Hung The Moon” is both as the absolute antithesis, and the epitome, of the modern-day music industry. It’s vulnerable, hopeful, unpredictable and exciting, all at the same time. The cinematic music pulls in one soulful, all-embracing direction, while Caitlin’s sweetly breathless, yet determinedly angsty vocal delivery, soars towards another orientation.

The track is a statement of intent from this young artist, channeling her feelings and sensations into a fully realized musical vision that is as comforting as it is unsettling.

“Hung The Moon” is evidence of Caitlin Strommen’s understanding of her own artistry, which is both unique and original. The production perfectly juxtaposes Catlin’s almost conversational tones and angular vocals. On previous releases, Caitlin has already proved her capability of crafting intriguing pop songs.
