Alt-pop music queen carolesdaughter (aka Thea Taylor), releases her alternative anthem titled please put me in a medically induced coma accompanied by an electric, modern-meets-cyber punk official music video. Carolesdaughter transmutes turbulence into strangely soothing alternative pop anthems awash in lo-fi glitch, bedroom acoustics, and gutter goth elegance.
The video was directed by Anastasia Lebedeva Delmark (Shaun Ross, Chazzy L), who takes the viewer along Thea’s journey of her own emotional hell, diving into her subconsciousness while showcasing her iconic style. Penned by Thea, the track, as well as the video, explores her experiences with mental health, and the ways in which she is sometimes able, or unable to cope.
Thea says, “please put me in a medically induced coma’ was the anthem my friends and I would sing when I was in treatment. I wrote it when I was there, and we would just sing it all the time. It’s one of my favorite songs to sing because of the lyrics. ‘I can’t hurt if I’m in a dream’ is one of my favorite lines because it captures the feeling of needing an escape.”
