In the video for her latest song, ‘High On Love (Can’t Get Too)’, Californian singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Karen Atkins escapes earth and coasts through the universe in her cherry-red Tesla Roadster. Created a full six months before the SpaceX Rocket launch both video and rocket were released at the same time. Talk about cosmic coincidences!
Although Karen isn’t seriously considering space travelling by Roadster to Mars, she does however identify deeply with its mission. A conscious lifestyle expert who’s also an in-demand public speaker as well as a talented musician, Karen chose a Tesla for her video for a real reason. To Atkins the electric car is a symbol of sustainability and responsibity, and when she’s taking to outer space in the video for ‘High On Love (Can’t Get Too)’, she’s not just going for a joyride, but instead she’s looking for a suitable home for the human race.
Karen Atkins’ pop-rock songs are designed to not just get you to dance and sing along, but also to think at the same time. The wellness expert recognises that music has healing powers, and uses it to address the challenges facing humanity.
The video shows Karen singing, playing funky guitar, bass, and piano as well. But it’s not just her musicianship we hear on the single; also includes Reggie Hamilton on bass (known for his work with Seal, and Mariah Carey), as well as session drummer Curt Bisquera, who’s worked with Elton John, and the Beach Boys. ‘High On Love (Can’t Get Too)’ was produced by Xeno. It’s brightly coloured and joyous in every second.
