South London soul singer Carmody continues to emerge into the spotlight in a special way with the release of her latest track “Being Without You” – the second taste from her anticipated forthcoming EP Catching Blue.
The mix of lyrical frankness and ethereal sound immediately define Carmody against the backdrop of London’s rising female artists: blending a 70’s cult songstress nature and a dreamy, folk narrative to a more inner-city electronic instrumental.
Speaking on the track, she states: “I read that grief is what love becomes when someone dies. It really got me thinking about death – how words feel completely inadequate when you try to comfort someone and how after a while, there is an idea that you should move on.
In my music people are often saying to me to write something happier; and although I have done, I’m just more comfortable writing in my ‘blue’ territory. This song is kind of my resistance.”
Initially hitting the radar of many through her collaborative effort Out To Sea with Tom Misch – they have continued a wonderful partnership across his releases including his acclaimed 2018 album Geography.
With critical attention from all the major tastemakers, Carmody continues to command attention. With Catching Blue set for a September release, get ready to hear a lot more from this homegrown talent.
