You can now hear the new single from Caution, the long-distance, songwriting duo’s contribution to the Hardly Art 15th Anniversary Singles Series.
Caution was formed in 2019 by songwriters Cash Langdon and Nora Button. Since 2020, the duo has collaborated almost exclusively sending tracks back and forth, as Langdon lives in Alabama and Button in Minnesota. Their first self-release “What You Sell” prompted a follow up EP and 2022's debut LP Arcola, both released by Born Yesterday Records. Caution blends genres between indie pop, shoegaze, grunge and even country to create an idiosyncratic sound that’s hard to categorize.
Cash and Nora of Caution offer this, “The initial demo of ‘To Decide’ was created January 1st of 2022. The cold darkness of Minneapolis winter had pervaded my mood. The lyrics confront an inability to experience meaning and connection as well as a wavering between fear and acceptance of ephemerality. “
