With her eagerly-awaited second album ‘Værmin’ (pronounced Vermin) set to arrive before the end of the month, the follow-up to her stunning 2020 debut LP ‘Alchemy’ and marking the first time she will be working with BMG Rights Management’s Modern Recordings imprint, Berlin-based Norwegian-Irish singer-songwriter Tara Nome Doyle has now unveiled the official video for her latest soaring new single ‘Caterpillar’.

Directed by Oliver Mohr, who has been a staple creative in her videos to date, the new visuals for ‘Caterpillar’ add a broad sense of levity and grandeur to the original release. With its bold and vivid atmosphere, the video aims to highlight the more cinematic themes within the song, capturing the raw and emotional direction she has sewn throughout her latest material.

Adding about the new video, director Mohr said, “It is the warm voice of seduction that tries to gently pull us into the abyss in Tara’s ‘Caterpillar’. All songs on the album are named after insects and deal with topics that are often neglected in society. In public as well as in private. The Caterpillar video tells of three characters in dangerous social addictions. Off-screen hands give things to the characters. Presumed gifts, which only reinforce the characters in their dependency. While we observe them in their situations, the space around the characters narrows in the course of the story to a gentle cocoon of loneliness. Together they dream of breaking free from their fate and flying away.”

Tara Nome Doyle is a 24-year old singer-songwriter with Norwegian-Irish roots. In April 2018 her first release, the song ‘Down with You’, came out. Since then it has been streamed more than four million times. More singles and an EP called ‘Dandelion’ followed. In January 2020 her debut album ‘Alchemy’ was celebrated by the German press (“… like Kate Bush singing songs by Nick Cave at Berghain”, SPIEGEL).

Doyle’s middle name, Nome, is pronounced ‘Noo-meh’ in Norwegian and ‘No Me’ in English.

In spring 2021 she co-wrote a song with Isobel Waller-Bridge (Fleabag, Emma) for the feature film ‘Munich – The Edge Of War’ by Christian Schwochow (The Crown, Je Suis Karl). In October 2021, this Netflix USA production, starring Jeremy Irons, premiered at the London Film Festival. In the film, which had its theatrical release in North America, UK, Germany and Spain on January 7th is now available to stream on Netflix, Doyle can be seen performing the song she co-wrote specifically for the scene, singing in German for the first time. In the end credits a fully orchestrated, English-language version of the song was used. In July 2021 the EP ‘The Moments We Keep’, which she co-wrote and co-produced with the Italian pianist Federico Albanese, came out on Mercury KX. In late 2020 she released recordings with Malakoff Kowalski (‘Bad Dreams’) and 1k Flowers (‘Clemency’).

On ‘Værmin’ Doyle tells a tragic love story, rich in symbolism and nuances, orchestrated with piano, violin and synthesizer and sometimes pulsating beats – and with singing that is both intense and varied, sometimes angelic, sometimes rough and threatening. ‘Værmin’ is touchingly beautiful – and yet it also celebrates the supposed ugliness that lives in all of us and that we like to suppress and ignore. All songs are named after animals that are considered undesirable pests: leeches, caterpillars, snails and worms. ‘Værmin’ celebrates their beauty and thus also asks a political question: What would happen if we “welcomed” these vermin instead of rejecting them? Wouldn’t we then arrive at a much richer, balanced relationship with ourselves, to a more differentiated relationship to the world around us and to other people? ‘Værmin’ is a grand, wise, deeply moving album. And the songs get stuck in your head immediately, pulling you into their depths: existential music by an extraordinary artist.
