Dark Pop Artist CORRO Floats Around in Absurdity in the Video for his Cover of Oliver Tree’s “Hurt”

Navigating the diverse terrains of dark pop anthems and grunge punk rock, CORRO stands out with a theatrical energy that’s both captivating and laden with wit. Drawing parallels to influential acts like Bring Me the Horizon and Sleep Token, CORRO’s unique blend has firmly established his presence in the music scene.

With his latest release, CORRO pays homage to Oliver Tree, one of his significant inspirations, through a cover of “Hurt.” Expressing his admiration, CORRO shares:

“I’ve been a huge fan of Oliver Tree for a long time and to say he has been an inspiration for me is a huge understatement. I did this cover to show how much I love his stuff and that hopefully he would see and enjoy it. It was very fun to play with my visual comedy and editing to it as well. This world always needs more weird, creative people in it.”

The cover song “Hurt” takes on a new life under CORRO’s creative direction, reminiscent of a communal acid trip between They Might Be Giants, Big Black, Shriekback, Faith No More, and Mike Patton over Saturday Morning cartoons and sugary breakfast cereal. The result is a quirky, engaging track that defies the norms.

The accompanying music video is an adventure into the absurd and whimsical, harking back to the vibrant era of 120 Minutes and Alternative Nation. Filled with a barrage of memes and cartoons, the video showcases CORRO’s disembodied head, adding a layer of levity and surreal charm to the song’s profound narrative.

Emerging with Nordic charm and a palette brimming with color, CORRO continues his ascent in the music world with a rich arsenal of melodies and aesthetics. His journey, which began with the bands DEADLOCKED STATE and Kerbera, has evolved into a solo endeavor marked by bold, genre-defying releases since signing with Swedish independent label Icons Creating Evil Art in 2019.

The 2021 single “Mona Liza Overdrive” was a significant milestone for CORRO, setting a new direction in his artistic path. This collaboration with the Glaswegian duo Johnny Madden and Chris Marshall, featuring guest drums from Chris Allen, solidified its place as a standout alt-rock anthem of the year.

With the release of “HURT,” CORRO not only celebrates the influence of Oliver Tree but also adds a distinct chapter to his own artistic narrative. This cover is a bridge between genres, a meeting point for fans of Yungblud, Royal Palaye, and Oliver Tree alike.
