Singer-songwriter Kapri released her latest single, “We Used to Go Outside,” last month on all major streaming platforms. The quarantine-inspired single has garnered lots of attention from listeners across the globe in the past few weeks.
Created at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the song is an analysis of the world’s complete shutdown through the singer’s apartment window. Produced by Kapri herself, “We Used to Go Outside” features blaring guitar riffs reminiscent of 90s garage-rock and jazz fusion.
The music video, shot last year, studies Hollywood from a bedroom window. You can watch the video here.
The song was recently awarded by the City of Los Angeles DCA COVID-19 team and, along with the video, is on a permanent Showcase titled House and Home on the City of LA website.
“‘We Used To Go Outside’ is a song I wrote and produced at the beginning of the March/April 2020 lockdown. Watching the world get much less crowded from my Hollywood window I was thinking about all the things we used to do and used to take for granted pre-pandemic.” – Kapri
