Cautious Clay debuts new track ‘Erase’
Cautious Clay on the track notes, “I made this song when I was in LA wanting to try something different that spoke to my feelings about my love/hate relationship with being online. It was sort of a mash up of two separate ideas for songs that didn’t really work out on their own, but felt perfect in the context of this production, and as a standalone single that isn’t attached to a project.“
Earlier this summer Cautious released ‘Swim Home‘, co-written and -produced with John Mayer and featured on the ‘13 Reasons Why‘ season three soundtrack, listen here and watch the visualizer here. ‘Swim Home’ was the first new music from the 26-year-old artist, born Josh Karpeh, since the release of his acclaimed EP Table Of Context earlier this year. The EP features singles ‘REASONS‘ with Tobias Jesso Jr. and Hudson Mohawke and ‘SIDEWINDER‘, as well as ‘SATURDAY MORNING CARTOONS‘ with UMI, and two more tracks.
Following sets at Lollapalooza, Electric Forest, Boston Calling and more this summer, Cautious will tour North America and Europe this fall, with headline shows in Paris, London, Los Angeles, Portland, Seattle, New York, Philadelphia and beyond.
