Carlo Capobianco is “Sleeping With The Enemy” with the release of new synth-infused electro-pop track – check it out on YouTube here:
Hot on the heels of the sultry love affair that was recent single, “Pray To You,” the Canadian singer-songwriter continues to push the boundaries with his unapologetically sexy flair for dance tunes — this time an imploring request for release of a partner who is unequivocally wrong for him.
“‘Sleeping With The Enemy', if even more so than my last single ‘Pray To You’, is what I believe to be the epitome of my album,” says Capobianco. “Sonically, it is like a dark dream or a Tim Burton story. I wanted to make sure that the feeling of unknowingly, or knowingly, loving something so deeply — can be as euphoric as it can be blinding.”
Capobianco’s alluring vocals carry the track through its spell-binding theme of lust and romance, utilizing tantalizing melodies over his flair for 80s new-wave. A modern take on an age-old theme, “Sleeping With The Enemy” accepts as it begs; pleads as it welcomes.
The songwriter shines in his visual component to telling the story… Capobianco’s stories come to life in his music videos; his Bowie-esque androgyny fused with his Prince-like allure is a new-age take while nodding to the pop/glam rock stars of the past. “We shot the music video at the beautiful Marriagi Hotel in the Exchange District in Winnipeg,” he reveals. “That gorgeous hotel has several themed suites, and we chose Rome. The video was directed and produced by Leigh Lugosi, a new friend and wonderful creative partner. The concept and idea came kind of naturally, and I thought that filming it in a hotel was kind of ironic. Releasing it on Valentine's Day was even funnier to me.”
Capobianco’s debut EP Pray To You is set to be released in the spring of 2022, and includes “Sleeping With The Enemy” and the title track, “Pray To You”. The seven-song strong album has been a passion project of the artist. “I am glad to say that the record is finished, and I can’t wait to get it out there into the world, as the story really does connect fully when listened from top to bottom,” he says.
Whether tangled in your own tryst of love and need, secretly hoping to find yourself in a myriad of desires versus laying in want, Capobianco’s track is a testament to an experience we’ve all been messily involved in. It’s an act of treason to ourselves to lay intimate with the wrong person — but doesn’t it feel too damn good to say “yes” even if you should be saying “no”?
Carlo Capobianco may be “Sleeping With The Enemy,” but it’s better than sleeping alone.
