A Nanaimo DJ has teamed up to produce a single that “unravels a story about toxic love and loss.”
Caroline Cecil, who performs as Whipped Cream, has collaborated with rapper and songwriter Malachi-Phree Jasiah, known professionally as Jasiah, and electronic producer-musician Yashar Tafazoli, who performs as Crimson Child, to release The Dark on Thursday, Jan. 26.
“The song … puts Jasiah’s operatic talents on full display, heightening the drama in the haunting keys and textured synth-work,” noted a release for the single.
“There is love in holding on and there is love in letting go,” said Whipped Cream in the release. “The Dark is inspired by the concept of picking up a rose – it looks incredibly inviting and beautiful to hold, but it can puncture the skin. It’s about a relationship where one person hasn’t cut out their toxic behaviours and although beautiful underneath, they still damage the one they love most.”
The release also noted that The Dark is Whipped Cream’s “most ambitious project to date” and will be featured on her upcoming EP out in early March.
It can be streamed across platforms including YouTube, Spotify, Apple Music and SoundCloud.
