Caleb Peters Goes “ROUNDABOUT” in New Music Video

19-year-old indie pop singer-songwriter Caleb Peters is back with a new music video for his newest single, “ROUNDABOUT.” The electro-pop single is a fast-paced and crazed exploration into Peters’s mind, and is his first single of 2022. 

The young artist was originally discovered in 2020 when his cover of ‘Sweater Weather’ went viral online. Since then, he has gained attention from companies such as Lyrical Lemonade and Urban Outfitters, and has led to a song collaboration with Lil B the Based God.

Peters’s newest song, “ROUNDABOUT,” is an electronic-inspired indie-pop tune that illustrates its own paranoia in its production. With help from Anthony Cronk, who drums with Peters, the song is a fast-paced whirlwind of an experience, making the lyrics come to life. Singing about feeling apprehensive and obsessive, Peters makes the listener feel like that as well. The song is also reminiscent of artists like Billie Eilish and Laura Les; the beat is powered by the crunchy synth production. As the beat holds a structural pattern, the voice effects make it feel as if we are listening to the song underwater, as shown by Peters in the music video. 

The “ROUNDABOUT” music video, directed by Drew Kielo, also picks up on the aesthetic and lyrics of the song itself; the video feels quick and anxiety-inducing. It also emphasizes the nostalgic but also futuristic nature of the song; featuring glitchy shots of Peters riding on his bike through a neighborhood and sitting about the bottom of a swimming pool, the audience get the sense that Peter’s is on the brink.
