Kelsy Karter is a New Zealand-born LA-based singer-songwriter. Not too long ago, she released a music video for her stadium-ready rock ‘n’ roll tune, entitled, “Liquor Store on Mars”.
Kelsy Karter – “Liquor Store on Mars” feat. Adam Slack (of The Struts)
“The song is a metaphor for finding a way to get over a broken heart. Escaping to mars was my way of getting through that. In the video I crash-land back on earth, representing the reality that you can’t run away from your problems forever. Adam Slack, from The Struts, features in this video and my band are by my side as per usual. At the end of the video I watch my rocket ship fly back to mars, and with that I’m letting go of the pain.” – Kelsy Karter
‘Liquor Store on Mars’ tells an interesting tale of a young woman who struggles to get over her ex-boyfriend.
Apparently, wherever she goes, there’s something or someone there to remind her of him and the relationship they once shared.
Later, she concludes that she has to move to another planet because everywhere on Earth possesses a memory of what she is trying to get over.
“In April 2018, my ex and I broke up. Everywhere I went, I was reminded of him. ‘There’s a chair, HE sits on chairs’. Was also dealing with a death and some personal stuff. It was a really dark time. All I wanted to do was F off to somewhere else and Mars seems like a pretty place.” – Kelsy Karter via V Magazine
‘Liquor Store on Mars’ will be featured on Kelsy Karter’s upcoming debut EP, entitled, “Rocket Girl”.
The likable tune showcases timelessly stunning vocals across a soundscape which reminds of yesteryear without feeling solely nostalgic.
Sitting somewhere between the likes of Janis Joplin and Lana Del Rey, ‘Liquor Store On Mars’ serves as Kelsy Karter’s biggest moment yet.
“Liquor Store on Mars”
“There’s a guy at this party with hair just like you. Oh, there’s no room at this party, where should I move. Maybe, New York, or somewhere up the coast. London or Paris? Nah, I hate the cold. Seems to be everywhere I wanna go is still too close to you. I hope there’s a liquor store waiting on mars with cheap cigarettes you can light with the stars. ‘Cause that’s how far I’ll have to go to see you and not say hello.” – lyrics
