Carina T is an old friend of The Static Dive. Her debut singles “Too Real” and “Inside Your Mind” were two of the earliest features to appear on these pages. Over the past two years, Carina has grown her fan base exponentially. Many of her songs now count their streaming numbers in the tens of thousands across multiple platforms. Her video “Bucket List” has over 85K views and continues to climb.
What makes all of this even more impressive and inspiring is the higher purpose that drives the artist and her music. When she is not writing and recording Pop songs, “Carina T” is better known as Dr. Carina Teixeira, PhD. in Psychology. The London-based, Portuguese born artist uses her music as a vehicle to help those in need of a little guidance.
“I Know it’s Over” is the singer’s latest single and video, and it is a beautiful song with a powerful message. At first listen, the track is a lovely and melancholy break-up ballad. A piano trio accompanies Carina’s soulful, emotional and expertly executed vocal as she sings of the loneliness and despair resulting from a lost love.
The singer paired the track with an emotionally stunning video which reveals a deeper meaning to her words. We follow two sides of a tragic love story which ends in the devastating suicide of the female lead, powerfully portrayed by Carina herself. The artist’s goal is to use her platform as a popular singer to educate those fighting suicidal thoughts, as well as the victims left behind.
With this video, I aim to raise awareness about suicide and show how warning signs can be subtle sometimes and therefore easy to miss. I also aim to depict the long-term pain experienced by suicide survivors and how crucial it is that they are supported in their suffering.Carina T
