CARR Covers The Kooks’ “Naive” Live At idobi Studios

In the wake of her recent visit to the idobi Studios in North Hollywood, the luminous artist under the banner of Pete Wentz’s DCD2 Records, CARR, cast her radiant presence once again upon our studio stage. With an air of anticipation, she embarked on a stripped-back rendition of her latest opus, the entrancing “Spiral City.” Yet, this was merely a prelude to her masterful reinterpretation of The Kooks‘ classic masterpiece, “Naive.”

Enveloped by the skillful harmonies of her guitarist, CARR embarked on a journey of artistic metamorphosis in comparison to her discography. Armed with an acoustic canvas, she masterfully reshaped the track’s upbeat and carefree character, infusing it with a tapestry of wistful and melancholic shades. Amid these acoustic harmonies, CARR conjured a transformation that breathed renewed life into The Kooks‘ 2006 sensational hit single, unveiling a facet of the young artist’s blossoming talent.
