In the style of great Atlantic Records artists who have come before him, Paolo Nutini knows how to make an album with classic soul trimmings. Nutini recently released his third studio album Caustic Love, and it is proving to be a real a critical success among listeners. Check out the album on iTunes.
Among love and loss, there are a number of amazing themes that Nutini explores on Caustic Love. Check out some awesome gifs that help underscore some of the ideas behind the tracks.
“Scream (Funk My Life Up)”
Unbridled passion can be quite the rollercoaster at times. It’s easy to fall in lust and later wonder how your world started spinning around and around out of control for someone. In “Scream (Funk My Life Up)”, Nutini confesses “She’s my rock, she’s my bud, she’s tequila, she’s a trip / And that girl, so fine.” Check out the official video for the track!
Paolo created an eight-minute cinematic piece directed by Daniel Wolfe to express his feelings of utter hopelessness and despair in “Iron Sky”. The short film takes place in an uncertain future time where people suffer from consistent social inequity and cope with reality the best way they can. The piece is truly compelling. The “Iron Sky” theme of salvation and overcoming are played out beautifully by the actors and the imagery. It is priceless musical commentary. Check out the official video!
“Let Me Down Easy”
The pain of rejection and love lost can be severe. “Let Me Down Easy” is a classic song about the perils of getting along once your lover feels “ to stay is wrong.”
I think this one is pretty self explanatory. Paolo Nutini epitomizes cool and effortlessly conveys emotion in his music with raw and soulful delivery that leaves even the toughest critics spellbound. “Superfly” is a track on Caustic Love that truly conveys this. It’s an instrumental interlude to all things cool and awesome.
