Alt-pop singer and songwriter Caroline Romano reveals her new single, “Doesn’t Matter,” out on all streaming platforms.

Following her recent singles, “girl in a china shop,” “Tell Her I Said Hi,” and “Used by You,” “Doesn’t Matter” sees Caroline continuing to develop her distinct and dynamic blend of indie-pop and alt-rock.

On “Doesn’t Matter,” her dreamy, sing-song vocals dance atop soaring synths and a driving percussive groove. There’s a playfulness to the song’s instrumentation that compliments Caroline’s captivating, stream-of-consciousness lyricism. 

“‘Doesn’t Matter’ is sort of a ‘choose your own storyline’ song,” says Caroline. “I wrote it about a relationship that felt like a double-edged sword; a relationship that had me thinking that maybe the inevitable heartbreak would be worth it. It’s a song about falling, all too carelessly, for someone on a rainy evening with the car radio playing. It’s simple and convoluted and all too accurate, at least from my personal experience.”
